Abstract

Simply said: All your G&G software projects. All in 3D. All the time. With this G&G software Web Viewer invention • Spin and view G&G software projects in color in your favorite browser • Pan, zoom, fly, rotate • Look inside the models with section views • Take snapshots from any angle of the model • Explore the input tree as you hide and view domain objects • Access G&G software project files in 3D on your mobile devices • An oilfield services company could be the first to offer such a solution (full format software G&G software + lightweight web viewer) • G&G software Green Arrow can finally appear on any browser! My G&G software Web Viewer invention is ideal for consulting and presenting a modeled structure at any stage of the project lifecycle. G&G software Web Viewer’s unique sharing technology makes true collaboration possible even in the most challenging projects and at all levels of hierarchy.

Introduction

Recent experience shows that a lot of innovation is happening in terms of web browsers. But how much of that is directed at the Geology and Geophysics (G&G) activity; adaptable to G&G workflows; tightly linked to software like G&G software that are becoming de facto the standards in the energy industry and incorporating a broad array of tools? As of today no individual or company created a universal “viewer” that couple to their G&G flagship software!

G&G software Web Viewer is an attempt to create a G&G focused browser. G&G software Web Viewer will be billed as the standard G&G 3D Viewer in the energy industry on your browser. In other words it is like having your favorite G&G software G&G software wherever you go! Do you want to view a G&G software project at home or on the go? With G&G software Web Viewer you will be able to view any G&G software project in 3D right in your browser thanks to this innovation for our collaborators, our clients and the G&G community.

Researching the many browsers, services and products available, what strikes me is that no one has made much headway when it comes to a true G&G web viewer. More often we will see that people might focus on using streaming technologies to stream their G&G software on a handheld or another machine while forgetting the recent impressive advances that have been made in the browsers world. Notably with the WebGL technology that enables these day to integrate full scale 3D games into all browsers (inc. Internet Explorer 11). More often we will find that most technology involving geospacial data is oriented to 2D with an emphasis from up to the bottom – i.e. planimetric view and most viewing involves the use of pan, zoom and navigation controls that involves moving around large areas. No software web 3D viewer, to my knowledge, is adapted for the specific G&G disicplines. Do we as users at different levels of the hierarchy need to launch a heavy weight G&G software when an alternative lightweight Web browser solution can be proposed?
