I really prefer this to conventionally tracking horizons in a grid!

Here's why:

  • Interactive Tracking: Unlike traditional grid-based tracking, OpendTect's tracker operates seamlessly in a 3D scene, detecting amplitude variations along maxima, minima, or zero-crossings.
  • Advanced Features: With an optional Dip-Steering license, you can leverage similarity, correlations, and seismic dip tracking.
  • Dual Tracking Methods:
    Seed Trace Method: Ideal for continuous user input. Start with high-confidence areas, gradually relax constraints, and make multiple passes. The result? A horizon that's quality-checked as you interpret, saving you editing time.
    Parent Method: Best for easily trackable events. It extends the horizon from starting positions, though there's a slight risk of loop-skipping.
  • Filling Gaps: Any untracked areas? No worries. They can be filled using algorithms like the OpendTect dip-steered gridder.

If you've used it, I'd love to hear your thoughts. And if you haven't, give it a try and let me know how it goes.

You can download OpendTect for free from our website. Zero strings attached!
