Common visualization for Geoscientists

Evaluating and developing assets requires managing data across domains, data types, and teams. Harness the collective expertise of your asset teams, reduce workflow cycle time, and make better E&P decisions with the DecisionSpace Base software – the foundation for the common visualization environment in DecisionSpace. The software provides the common features and tools needed by geoscientists and engineers to execute collaborative workflows, including data access and analysis, calculation capabilities, project notation and cataloging, workflow instructions, and more.

Access and visualize all relevant data

E&P companies need to keep asset data synchronized and available to teams – wherever they are in the world. Built on the OpenWorks® R5000 database, the DecisionSpace Base module provides seamless access to geophysical, geological, geomechanical, real-time drilling data, and more – and the 1D/2D/3D visualization environment with which to view it. 

View and share project data – in any format

Asset data can come from multiple teams running different applications. The DecisionSpace Base module dynamically converts data volumes, interpretations, and models – from time to depth or depth to time – as you work. Easily view, interpret, and integrate data types acquired in the field.

Learn on the fly

The DecisionSpace Base module improves workflow efficiency by getting staff the knowledge they need to complete tasks. The module's Workflow Catalog provides interactive access to predefined steps and instructions for the most common exploration workflows, as well as company-specific best practices. Get less-experienced users up to speed quickly and enhance understanding and consistency without extensive training. Use Workflow Catalog to share ideas, documents, and data sets – and keep learning as you go.

Capture best practices

Every E&P organization has unique ways of doing things; knowledge accumulated by teams and domain experts is a company's most valuable asset. With Project Designer, create and capture best-practice workflows that let experts guide novice users by outlining each step in a workflow. Relevant data, decisions, and activities are easily captured in a report, and this vital information is saved along with the project.

Share what you know

Asset development is iterative and collaborative.Teams need to share ideas and insights. The DecisionSpace Base module's Interpretation Notes let teams capture and share spatially referenced ideas. Add links to images, external files, documents, or the web. Interpretation Sets capture groups of data so that colleagues can understand every piece of input used for an analysis. Notes and sets are saved with the project in the OpenWorks database, so they can be passed on for the life of the project.
