Vibrators - costly compared to vectorizing


Seismic reconstruction

provides live data quickly

and cheaply, can save

the cost of re-shooting

and facilitates

the optimization

of new acquisition.



Seismic Reconstruction


Crayon interpretation of seismic data



Seismic Interpretation - 1984 style


Much of the seismic data archive that exists today survives only in the form of hard-copy displays. The tapes that once contained the data have mostly been recycled or are lost, unreadable or not available for some other reason.


Canesis scans these displays and vectorizes the full waveform of the original traces using our proprietary WinTrack™ software package.


Tiff with  vectorized SEGY Overlay


Even the most unpromising of displays can yield surprisingly good results in the hands of our highly experienced analysts. Careful attention to scanning parameters, a good grasp of image enhancement techniques and the best vectorizing software tools ensure optimum results.


In the case of sections that have been crayon interpreted, damaged by coffee rings or are merely suffering from fading or the discolouration of age, we have a variety of techniques to remove the damage and create a clean display for vectorising. The options range from colour scanning and channel masking to manual pixel editing.


Our WinTrack™ vectorizing software uses advanced techniques to capture both peak and trough information from the trace images to give maximum dynamic range in the output.


Once in SEGY format, the data can be processed through normal post-stack routines as with any other seismic data.


Canesis provides a full range of data processing options, up to and including migration.
