Dynamic Visual Analytics

for Better, Faster and More Confident Decisions

COVIZ 4D excels in delivering quantitative co-visualization of 2D, 3D, and 4D data in a variety of industries and application areas.

Our advanced, flexible visualization environment helps you gain a deeper understanding of your surface and subsurface data, regardless of the application—energy, environment, government, or academia. The ability to rapidly integrate, visualize, and analyze diverse spatial and temporal datasets improves insight and optimizes subsequent decision making.

One major usage area for CoViz 4D is subsurface reservoir management, in both onshore and offshore fields. Understanding the changing response of a hydrocarbon reservoir over time is critical for optimizing development decisions and subsequent production. CoViz 4D makes it possible for multi-disciplinary asset teams to simultaneously view and interrogate all available data from seismic to simulation, regardless of the original data source. The understanding gained through data fusion is powerful in 3D and increases enormously when all 4D temporal data can also be integrated. The unique temporal functionality in CoViz 4D allows users to visualize and understand how development decisions affect the reservoir throughout the history of a field.

Integration of multi-disciplinary data, including reservoir simulation, 4D seismic, seismic attribute extractions, structure model, and production data. Data Used with Permission of Owner.

Alongside reservoir management, CoViz 4D has optional modules for seismic forward modeling (Sim2Seis), 4D Geomechanics, and sophisticated well planning.

A second major usage area for CoViz 4D is in Geospatial Analysis / surface studies. Geospatial datasets often include large volumes of diverse data such as topography, imagery, vegetation, and infrastructure from a wide variety of sources. CoViz 4D is the premiere platform for solving any data integration and analysis challenge; the software includes automated workflows for reading and integrating surface datasets, including very large LiDAR datasets and hyperspectral imagery, to build a complete scene. Specialized tools allow for qualitative and quantitative investigations such as:

  • Ground terrain studies (slope, aspect)
  • Assessing changing relationships between objects over time
  • Image differencing
  • On-the-fly route / mission planning
  • Threat assessment
  • Mission updating and rehearsal

Any data introduced to CoViz 4D, whether surface or subsurface, can be analyzed and interrogated using sophisticated Quantitative Visualization methods. This allows the quantitative comparison of spatially and temporally coincident, yet geometrically dissimilar, datasets. Outputs include statistical plots, time-series charts, or a variety of advanced customizable processes available to users via our easy-to-use Developers’ Toolkit.

Visualizing the Reservoir

A solution that offers a dynamic, temporal visualization environment for data fusion and integrated reservoir surveillance.

Visualizing Everything at Once

Dynamic Graphics has developed a tool which can visualize multiple datasets from an oil field simultaneously in 3D and 4D—from an overall view of the basin to a view of the individual wells and reservoirs—and you can see how it changed over time as well.
