How can I view my 3D seismic volume (SEGY) in Voxler?

Q:  How can I import my seismic volume (SEGY file) into Voxler?


A:  To import a SEGY file into Voxler:

  1. Click File | Import (or File | Load Data in Voxler 2).
  2. Select your SEGY file, and click the Open button.
  3. In the SEGY Import Options dialog, select Detect from Header or Use Default in the Data Type section. 
  4. Select Curvilinear model in the Import Format section.
  5. Click the OK button.The data loads into Voxler.
  6. To visualize the data, right click on the data in the network window and connect either a Graphics Output | HeightField module or Graphics Output | OrthoImage module to display the data.


Note from Voxler Help Files:

The SEGY filter imports SEG-Y seismic data log files as point sets or two-dimensional lattices. Each SEG-Y file contains one or more "traces," which are digital representations of amplitude samples as recorded by a paper tape seismic recorder (or modern paperless equivalent).

File name extensions: [.SGY, .SEGY]

Format(s) Supported for Import:

  • 2D uniform lattice; 8-,16-bit integer, float
  • Point set; 8-,16-bit integer, float
