GNS Science releases iMage seismic software interface

GNS Science has launched the new iMage platform as a stand-alone interface with GLOBE Claritas seismic processing software.

All iMage tools use a common engineering framework, designed to scale efficiently across large systems. This allows complex, high-fidelity algorithms to make the best possible use of existing hardware, said GNS Science.

The first tool available through iMage is called STITCH; an advanced wavefield regularization and interpolation algorithm. The image quality in a seismic survey can be dominated by irregularities in how the seismic wavefield was created or recorded. STITCH scans the seismic dataset, looking for gaps (i.e. missing traces), and then automatically selects the best method for reconstructing the wavefield from surrounding information.

GNS said future releases for iMage will include a de-ghosting/broadband solution (called OCTAVE), as well as a fast and “true 3D” SRME - for suppression of complex multiples. Each component will be licensed separately.
