The Seismic Classification Editor

This user-driven seismic classification editor supports a novel user-driven classification of 3D seismic data sets. The tool is based on two approaches for the calculation of two-dimensional transfer functions on a volume data set: the occlusion spectrum and GLCM texture features. The user driven classification comprises both, the 3D view with a particular slice as well as the 2D cross plot representation of the volume with its corresponding data attributes.

The Occlusion Spectrum is a technique for classifying volumetric data sets based on ambient occlusion of voxels. It was originally developed for rendering medical data sets such as MRI or CT. The VRGeo R&D Team adapted this technique for data sets from the oil and gas domain.

This application runs under the Windows operating system and it uses

It is available for the members of the VRGeo Consortium.

“This master’s thesis deals with the interactive classification of seismic volume datasets via transfer functions. In this context current interactive methods according to the state of the art are introduced and evaluated. Depending on the derived properties an own method is developed. Possible benefits are to be revealed and a classification under the current methods needs to be made. In the practical section an application is implemented to evaluate the current and the new method by classifying the volume data sets using user interactions. For the evaluation, four data sets with different classification goals are examined and evaluated.”
