Divestco announces ‘Glass’ seismic interpretation system

New .NET implementation provides autopicking and iPad app for interpreters on the road.

Calgary-based Divestco has released ‘Glass’, a new seismic interpretation system. Glass was written from scratch using Microsoft’s .NET framework. Divesco started work on Glass several years ago starting out with its legacy interpretation product, WinPics. Feedback from WinPics’ clients was used as a starting point for the Glass roadmap. But the new tool was re-written ‘from the ground up’ with a new user interface and redesigned workflows.

Glass offers automatic picking and a GIS map providing accurate coordinate conversions and interactive horizon and grid calculators. Glass also offers ‘iPad integration’ for interpreters on the move. We asked Divestco’s Shannon Bjarnason how iPad integration has been realized. ‘We didn’t use .NET for the iPad app. It is definitely an app approved through the iStore. We actually have a patent pending on our full implementation of the architecture for this so I can’t get into the details but we will be able to port this to other mobile devices if client feedback warrants it.’
