It is a difficult task to design transfer functions for noisy data. In traditional transfer-function spaces, data values of different materials overlap. In this paper we introduce a novel statistical transfer-function space which in the presence of noise, separates different materials in volume data sets. Our method adaptively estimates statistical(More)
In our work we present techniques for illustrative rendering of interpreted seismic volume data by adopting elements from geology book illustrations. We also introduce combined visualization techniques of interpreted and uninterpreted data for validation, comparison and interdisciplinary communication reasons. We introduce the concept of smooth transitions(More)
In this paper, we present a novel technique which simulates directional light scattering for more realistic interactive visualization of volume data. Our method extends the recent directional occlusion shading model by enabling light source positioning with practically no performance penalty. Light transport is approximated using a tilted cone-shaped(More)
We present a toolbox for quickly interpreting and illustrating 2D slices of seismic volumetric reflection data. Searching for oil and gas involves creating a structural overview of seismic reflection data to identify hydrocarbon reservoirs. We improve the search of seismic structures by precalculating the horizon structures of the seismic data prior to(More)
Petroleum reservoir model building is a fundamental but complex task present in all stages of oil/gas exploration and production (E&P). Reservoir models are built incrementally using multi-disciplinary data (e.g. from geophysics, geology, reservoir engineering) and the domain expert interpretation of that data. The first reservoir models are constructed(More)
Seismic horizons indicate change in rock properties and are central in geoscience interpretation. Traditional interpretation systems involve time consuming and repetitive manual volumetric seeding for horizon growing. We present a novel system for rapidly interpreting and visualizing seismic volumetric data. First we extract horizon surface-parts by(More)
The process of creating terrain and landscape models is important in a variety of computer graphics and visual-ization applications, from films and computer games, via flight simulators and landscape planning, to scientific visualization and subsurface modelling. Interestingly, the modelling techniques used in this large range of application areas have(More)
