|Paradigm® EarthStudy 360® Illuminator is an advanced seismic data mining tool that provides a previously unattainable breadth of knowledge about ray propagation in complex areas. It uses an advanced, interactive ray tracing technology that quantifies the relationship between the surface acquisition geometry and subsurface angles in targeted areas.|
|Launched from 3D Canvas, input for the Illuminator includes the isotropic/anisotropic velocity models and optionally, data acquisition geometry. Interpreters can generate ray attribute, illumination, and reliability maps to gain knowledge about the quality and integrity of the seismic image. A user who wants to know more about why certain areas have low reliability, has access to an extensive set of tools which deliver that knowledge. The results are displayed in a clear visual manner, simplifying even the most complex set of imaging characteristics.
