17.3 Scope of DAS Data Objects

Topic Version1Published12/09/2016
For StandardPRODML v2.0

Data in scope for the current version of the DAS data object includes:

  • A description of the DAS optical path and instrument box (leveraging the existing PRODML DTS (distributed temperature sensing) data object.
  • Raw and processed DAS data; Processed data types included are frequency band extracted (FBE) and Fourier transformed spectrum data.

Out of scope are data formats for specific applications that derive end products from the raw, frequency band or spectrum DAS data; examples are seismic traces, leak detection events, and flow profiles. For many of these applications, industry standards already exist (SEG standards for seismic, LAS for well log data, PRODML and WITSML for DTS, etc.).
