Note from Voxler's Online Help:

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
