GeoTeric’s Master Project functionality allows the user to transfer data from a Master Project containing all key data into a Client Project which can be worked on individually. It also allows for project items such as horizons and faults to be seamlessly transferred between Client Projects.
The Master Project will be available with the release of GeoTeric 2018.1.
The value of this functionality is that a significant amount of disk space can be saved as Client Projects would only need to reference the Master Project volumes. This would greatly save time as data managers (admins) would only need to load key data once. Once a Client Project references a Master Project, the volumes are automatically referenced and the interpreters can then choose to import any specific blends or project items (horizons, faults, wells, polygons etc…).

Admins will have the ability to ‘publish’ project items (such as an updated horizon interpretation) or new Color Blends, which interpreters can seamlessly import into their Client Projects - with the option to overwrite or save as a copy.
Figure 2 below illustrates how the Master Project and Client Projects can be used. For instance, a fault interpretation (or any other project item) created in Client Project A can be transferred to Client Project B using the ‘Copy From Project’ option, while both can reference the Master Project data.
