Seismic Interpretation Software

Triton SB-InterpreterTM is the new seismic interpretation software product, designed to simplify and automate the interpretation of high-resolution, shallow seismic data. This product joins Triton SB-LoggerTM, Triton's seismic data acquisition package released last year to round out the comprehensive Triton product line. SB-Interpreter has been designed and built around the new Triton architecture, which employs temporal caching to accomplish high speed processing of large data sets. The map view shows geo-coded survey tracks accurately co-registered with GeoTIFF imagery or S-57 electronic charting of the survey area. Processing capabilities include filtering of navigation, application of layback, and filtering/processing of seismic profile... (read more)

A Software Perspective

The Effect of Hydrography on Unmanned Systems
The field of hydrography is poised to make some substantial contributions to the unmanned systems community. The mantra of ‘making a map is easy, but doing hydrography is hard positions hydrographic practitioners favourably into the world of unmanned systems. Moreover, these technologies, once limited to defence and academia, are currently undergoing an expansion into the commercial realm. Not only has this increased the facility of using unmanned systems, it has also spawned innovative uses of these technologies and has blurred the lines between the traditional surveying community to the benefit of all. By Vitad “V” Pradith, HYPACK, USA. As the healthy... (read more)
