Title
(EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR INTERACTIVE CURVED SURFACE SEISMIC INTERPRETATION AND VISUALIZATION
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL POUR L'INTERPRETATION ET LA VISUALISATION DE DONNEES SISMIQUES INTERACTIVES SUR DES SURFACES COURBES
Abstract
(EN)
An enlarged computer graphic image of seismic data is displayed on a concave three-dimensional surface having a shape corresponding to the shape of selected data extracted from a three-dimensional seismic volume. Thus providing an enlarged image of a seismic surface where the data is spatially correct in three-dimensions, and which increases the ease with which interpreters can locate geological features such as horizons, faults, and channels. An auxiliary paddle screen (59) is provided to display an interactive video image for exploring the volume within the hybrid screen (20).
(FR)
L'invention porte sur une image graphique informatique agrandie de données sismiques qui est affichée sur une surface tridimensionnelle concave dont la forme correspond à celle de données sélectionnées extraites d'un volume sismique tridimensionnel. On obtient ainsi une image agrandie d'une surface sismique où les données sont spatialement correctes en trois dimensions, ce qui facilite encore davantage la tâche aux interprètes qui localisent les caractères géographiques tels que l'horizon, les failles et les canaux. L'invention concerne également un écran plat auxiliaire (59) destiné à afficher une image vidéo interactive afin d'explorer le volume dans un écran hybride (20).
