How do I export a time-slice as an X, Y, Amplitude map?


Create a constant time or depth horizon

  1. Go to the Map View > Operations tab.
  2. Select Create Constant Horizon in the Operations dropdown
  3. Enter a Value for the horizon.
  4. Select the Vertical dimension to use.
  5. At Area, select a polygon or probe.
  6. Enter the Spacing (m) (grid cell size, or increment) for the horizon.
  7. Select the Survey to use.
    • Choose <<X/Y>> for a regularly spaced grid without a survey.
  8. Click Calculate to start the operation.
  9. Click Create to create a new horizon containing the extracted values.
  10. By default, the new horizon will be named: “constant_value survey/gathers” e.g. 1,500 ms X/Y.

Configure the amplitude extraction

  1. Select the volume to extract from.
  2. Select the constant horizon.
  3. (Optional)Turn off the time slice.
  4. Select the horizon property to extract (e.g. Amplitude).
  5. Click the tool button to adjust extraction properties (for windowed properties such as RMS).

Capture the result as a custom property

  1. Right click on the displayed amplitude map
  2. Click Save horizon as a custom property.
  3. Enter a name for the property.
  4. Click OK. The property will be added to that selected horizon.

Custom horizon export as X/Y/Amplitude

  1. Go to Control Panel > Horizon tab.
  2. Right-click on the constant horizon and choose Export 'horizon_name'.
  3. In the Export window, choose Export customised text file.
  4. Click OK.
  5. In the Export Horizon window, choose columns X, Y and the custom property.
