Redefining Volume's Survey

In cases where a volume is imported using the wrong survey, this feature allows you to move the volume to its intended survey.

The ability to redefine a volume's survey is only available if:

  • it is a 3D volume
  • you have more than one survey in your session
  • you are the owner of the volume.
    To take ownership, right click on the volume and select
    Take Ownership (see Multi-user Considerations).

If these prerequisites are not met, the Redefine Volume's Survey section of the Configure Volume window will not be visible.

Note: This is NOT the right way to resample a correctly-imported volume onto a different survey. To do that, or if you just want to change the IL/CL numbers assigned to it, export the volume onto a desired survey (see Exporting a Volume). This feature is only to fix import mistakes.
