INT looks ahead to future of E&P widgets

Pervasive E&P widgets now leverage GPU rendering and 3D graphics from single line of code.

We popped in on Interactive Network Technologies at the EAGE to checkout its visualization components a.k.a. ‘widgets.’ INT’s widgets are pretty pervasively used by upstream software developers to display seismics, logs, well schematics and more. The latest OpenGL/Java offering from INT farms-out rasterizing to a GPU renderer. The result is a sharp seismic display with pan, zoom and annotation capability and various combinations of color variable area and wiggle. But the fun starts when the display switches to 3D. Seismics, logs—even elaborate multi-track composites—can be viewed and manipulated in 3D. Geobodies can be contoured and annotated. By changing a single line of code, developers get GPU speedup and an extra dimension! The new INTViewer 4.1 leverages the Netbeans rich client platform. GIS display enhancements provide support for projections when loading shape files. INTViewer relies on Nokia Qt for cross platform functionality on Windows, Mac, Linux and UNIX operating systems.
