3.4.10 Seismic Surveys

For StandardRESQML v2.0.1

Seismic survey representations take advantage of previously defined representations, with the addition of seismic coordinates to their geometry. A seismic survey feature describes a seismic lattice, a seismic line, or their collections. Any of the representations already described may be associated with a seismic survey feature, and then seismic coordinates, e.g., inline and crossline coordinates, may be associated with the geometric points of the representation. (In general, these coordinates are not integers because the points of a representation need not align with the geometry of a survey.)

The oil and gas industry already has a robust standard for the exchange of seismic data using the SEGY format. Therefore, RESQML does not attempt to redefine a new seismic data standard but can reference SEGY files in an EPC file.
