Visualizing 2D & 3D seismic data

OpendTect's 3D viewer supports visualization of seismic sections (inlines, crosslines, time-slices), random lines, 2D lines, horizons, faults, wells (tracks, markers, stratigraphy, logs), objects, polygons and picks, volume rendering and pre-stack gathers. Seismic data can also be displayed in separate 2D viewers. Several commercial plugins offer additional visualization capabilities & viewers (e.g. the HorizonCube allows sliding through a dense set of horizons, the Well Correlation Panel (v4.2) supports a dedicated 2D viewer, as does Spectral Bluing and Colored Inversion (v4.2)).

The main idea behind the 3D interface is that seismic interpreters must be able to quickly scan through multiple volumes of data and combine information to get the optimal view of any geological feature of interest. For this reason, data processing and visualization are rigorously integrated in the system.

Visualization elements can be moved freely through data space to interactively analyse data from stored volumes, or data calculated on-the-fly. Visualization elements include slices (inlines, crosslines, timeslices), horizons, random lines and cubes. For better interpretation of the data and analysis results, OpendTect supports volume rendering and stereo viewing.
