Importing ASCII Volume

Use the ASCII volume loader to analyse and convert ASCII files to Insight's dugio format. Many ASCII files can easily be imported, but essential information is often missing or difficult to determine.

Posting convention

Insight uses a top-posted interval velocity convention, i.e. an interval velocity sample defines the time that the velocity changes (the top of the interval). Other software may use a different convention. This can lead to incorrect results when loading interval velocities created elsewhere.

We recommend transferring velocity models between software packages in RMS or Average velocity. Use the Velocity Conversion process to safely convert velocities between different formats.

See Interval velocity posting convention.
