Using a Wacom pen directly onscreen provides a faster and more comfortable way to analyze data during the exploration of future energy sources.
Benefits of Pen Input for Seismic Interpretation
- Increased speed of operating seismic interpretation software
- Enhanced precision and control of the cursor due to direct eye-hand coordination of the pen on the screen
- Greater comfort while working with the ergonomic pen compared to using a mouse for extended periods of time
- Improved productivity of geologists, geophysicists, and engineers due to speed improvements and fewer distractions due to fatigue
In order to visualize massive amounts of 3D volumetric data to identify stratographic and structural features and interpret horizons and faults, the data must be properly prepared through visual interrogation and markup. The processing geophysicist uses pen on the screen to delineate faults, contour horizons and remove anomalies to refine the data for further processing. This labor intensive pre-processing workflow is critical to assure the accuracy of the future automated interpretation.

Recommended Wacom products
Ideal for seismic interpretation and interacting with 3D data due to its large screen area, 1920x1200 resolution, ergonomic display stand and cushioned grip pen.
An excellent choice as a single interactive pen display or used in tandem to provide an extended desktop that is controlled by a single pen directly on the screen. The DTU-2231 provides a high resolution viewing experience with 1920x1080 resolution.
