Optional Extensions

Encom AutoMag is an optional extension for ModelVision for rapid magnetic depth-to-basement source estimation and fast processing of large surveys. AutoMag uses the full precision of original line data to increase the data accuracy of the inversion. ModelVision provides an interactive environment for quality control, editing and verification of the solutions.

UBC-GIF GRAV3D & MAG3D Interface: Use ModelVision to create the UBC mesh density and magnetic susceptibility property distribution and physical property constraints. The variable density mesh can be tested at low resolution to avoid losing time on simple mistakes. Use ModelVision to prepare the data, regional terrain and control files. This makes UBC inversion easy.

Encom EM Flow

EM Discover

EM Flow offers display, analysis and interpretation of single or multi component airborne time and frequency EM data. The software is designed to operate on large EM datasets and provide conductivity depth sections for data interpretation.

EM Flow uses newly developed EM theory and sophisticated mathematics developed by CRC-AMET. Theoretically defined EM system waveforms or measured waveforms are used to deconvolve the EM multi-component, multi-channel line data; users have full control over the processing and production of conductivity depth images (CDI).

The conductivity and depth output of EM Flow can be imported directly into Encom Discover PA, an industry standard for advanced data visualisation and interpretation, for enhanced CDI displays, 2D section gridding and 3D voxel gridding. The processed EM data can be integrated with other geoscience data, models and drillholes.

The input data can be transformed to conductivity-depth images for direct interpretation. Indications of conductive and resistive zones are usually detectable and in multi- line survey situations, correlation of anomalous zones can be determined.

EM Discover

EM Flow key features:

Conductivity-Depth Sections

CDI section processing is customized using component weighting with selected tau depth intervals and depth ranges. The result of the CDI processing can be displayed in EM Flow or output to a Geosoft GDB database or ASCII file display in Discover PA Explorer or Geosoft Oasis montaj. Conductivity depth sections are presented in pseudo color using log or linear color stretches.

EM System Definition

An interactive editor is provided to allow the EM processing system’s geometry transmitter waveform and calibrations to be specified. An interactive formatter simplifies input file definition so that waveform specifications can be imported from external programs such as Microsoft Excel.

Data Import

An interactive import utility provides a generic interface for most EM multi-column ASCII file types including Geosoft. Additional utilities to define the EM processing system waveform recorded time windows and transmitter-receiver geometry are also included.

3D Integration

Discover PA Explorer and Discover PA Professional are optionally used for extended visualization capabilities and integration with other geophysical and geological information. Discover PA products support 1D 2D Section and 3D visualization methods.
