SimActive Inc., a world-leading developer of photogrammetry software, announces that its Correlator3D™ product is being used by Texas-based company Dawson Geophysical for oil and gas seismic exploration. Orthomosaics and elevation models are generated from aerial imagery to aid in the planning of seismic surveys.
Dawson uses a medium format camera from Phase One to fly over areas of between 20 and 200+ square miles. The collected images are then processed by SimActive software to derive highly accurate geospatial data and identify points of interest. Finally, mappers use the imagery to spot hazards and plan routes in advance.
“SimActive’s software allows our company to survey hundreds of square miles at a much faster pace”, said Christopher Lindsey, Technical Services Manager at Dawson Geophysical. “This enables us to be more accurate, time-efficient out in the field, and to produce map products that our whole company can use.”
Dawson Geophysical Company is a leading provider of North American onshore seismic data acquisition services with operations throughout the continental United States and Canada. Dawson acquires and processes 2-D, 3-D and multi-component seismic data solely for its clients, ranging from major oil and gas companies to independent oil and gas operators, as well as providers of multi-client data libraries.
