Workbench 6.6 release
New tools for processing and visualization of EM data/models, TEM auto processing, and Hydro Structural Modelling, as well as model selection across databases and a floating license option
Workbench 6.6 is out now and includes multiple new tools and important updates including a Views tool for processing, reprocessing, and visualization of EM data, an auto processing tool for TEM data that enables data processing in both time and distance as well as the ability to maintain the raw data throughout the workflow, and an exciting new Hydro Structural Modelling (HSM) module that creates a new way to use resistivity models and lithology logs to produce clay fraction and cluster models for hydrogeological modelling. With the possibility to create model selection across multiple databases, several new airborne EM features and a floating license option, Workbench 6.6. is packed with new tools and features to optimize your workflow.
Views EM and streamed ERT data visualization tool
Views is a flexible, visual tool for processing and visualization of all EM and streamed ERT data in Workbench. Depending on your workflow and what you want to visualise, the tool provides several specialized “views” with individual settings, enabling you to create, save, modify, and synch data visualizations.
There are four different views. Data view for processing of EM data, data/model view for reprocessing of data when inversion models are created, model view to compare results from different inversions or surveys, and an auxiliary view to display all parameters available from the instrument.
TEM auto processing tool
The TEM auto processing tool has been redesigned to enable filters to be applied in time or distance. The sounding distance is optional, and filters can be applied to the original data positions, or the data can be kept in its raw format.
Hydro Structural Modelling (HSM) Module
The new Hydro Structural Modelling (HSM) module for Workbench contains a 2-step semi-automated workflow to create hydrostratigraphic models by combining resistivity information from geophysical data and borehole lithologies. The two steps are Accumulated Clay Thickness (ACT) modelling to create a clay fraction model and a clustering routine to create a zonated model. The cluster model can then be exported to 3rd party software and combined with Multiple Point Statistics (MPS) to create an ensemble of equally probably models and thereby quantify uncertainties of the hydro-stratigraphic models.
Visualize results from several surveys together in the GIS interface, sections, or 3D viewer with the option to create model selections across databases.
With floating licenses users can choose to have their license automatically unregister when closing the software. This eliminates the need to manually unregister when you want to use a different computer that the software was originally licensed to, making it easier to move between office and home-based PCs.
