A geology project for ESA has been carried out in conjunction with WesternGeco to provide a map of seismic quality, based on the modelling of a series of EO-based thematic layers from within a Geographical Information System (GIS).
The aim of the project was to provide a tool for the seismic acquisition industry that can provide an indication of the quality of seismic data prior to seismic survey.
This GIS uses:
- surface texture
- geological structure
- drainage derived
This is combined with EO data within a model to produce a seismic quality map as shown.
The product was provided digitally as an ArcView project, along with hardcopy mapsheets and digital imagery.
