Out of the box, Spotfire does not naturally load or represent seismic data. In this post, we will cover how we have extended the Spotfire platform with the Segy data source (available as part of the 3D Subsurface Visualization) which allows the loading, representation and visualization of seismic data in Spotfire.
In this post, we will extract the seismic binary data into a vanilla Spotfire table which we can visualize using a heatmap. In the next post, we will actually do some interpretation on the seismic, but for now we wanted to show how you can manipulate seismic data in TERR. We will add some dynamic interaction so the user can select different cross line or inline indices to extract and view in a heatmap. Once the data is extracted and visualized, we can color it, mark it, and build histograms with it. Ok let’s get started.
