Many different 3D and 4D data types in the same view. Well paths, logs, and tops shown in context with 4D seismic and a reservoir simulation model. Production data also shown. Data used with permission of owner.
Visualizing spatio-temporal data on evolving entities or processes requires the definition of a 3D space within which change occurs over time. Understanding the temporal evolution, at varying positions within a defined 3D space, requires robust visualization of any 3D data with the ability to view the data at specific times (4D) as changes occur to the entity or process. Complex 4D visualization and analysis can only be achieved through sophisticated computer solutions which enable flexibility in animating through time regardless of varying times in the required data.
DGI’s CoViz 4D has the unique capability to produce flexible and sophisticated 3D and 4D visualizations of many types of spatio-temporal data. It has the ability to conduct user defined mathematical analyses and extract analytic information from input data. Additionally, CoViz 4D through its data registry and data plugins, has robust data import capability which can make entry of massive datasets possible with minimal duplication and minimal effort.

CoViz 4D: Advanced Visualization of 4D Spatio-Temporal Data Interaction
Software packages such as CoViz 4D enhance spatio-temporal data analysis by providing a collaborative multidisciplinary environment. Geologists, geophysicists, drilling and reservoir engineers can leverage the capabilities of the software to:
- Integrate a wide range of data including 3D/4D seismic and temporal data for in-depth analysis
- Develop a 4D reservoir simulation model that ideally depicts the dynamic behavior of the subsurface
- Conduct seismic history matching to confirm predictive models are on track and to minimize uncertainties
- Cross-plot to identify patterns in the datasets and detect anomalies
- Perform time-step analysis to monitor and track the performance of the reservoir over time
