GeoTeric 2017.2 – Floating Point Data

GeoTeric 2017.2 – Floating Point Data

The GeoTeric 2017.2 release not only included the release of the Adaptive Faults as part of our Adaptive Interpretation System, but also the ability to load and visualise data in floating point.  The ability to load geophysical volumes such as Vp/Vs and Acoustic Impedance volumes with their original values allows interpreters to extend their subsurface analysis capabilities in GeoTeric.  

The volume loading process remains the same as in previous versions, the only difference is in the final loading window, where the selection of the data format is selected.  This will load the volume in the 32-bit IEEE Floating Point format.  The same format can be selected when exporting any dataset.

Additional benefits of loading Floating Point data in its original format is the visualisation of volumes in more geophysical terms.  Inverted volumes are now displayed as the same values as the well logs for better correlation of well data to volumes.  The dip and azimuth volumes are now displayed in more realistic geophysical values e.g. dip 0-90.

Data loaded in Floating Point is fully compatible with all of the GeoTeric workflows including the new Adaptive Interpretations System, including Horizon, Fault and Geobody interpretation.
