julia0.6 tools to read, write and process seismic data




Build Status


**With the update to julia version 1.0 and the new Pkg system, this package is inactive. You can still download and use this package,

but consider instead using the new packages with updated modules**

This module provides tools to read, write, and process seismic data. The documentation can be found here and here. At the moment, it is updated and tested against Julia 0.6.


To use this package you must first install the Julia programming language. Once you have Julia you can install the Seismic package by typing Pkg.add("Seismic") on the Julia command line and then run Pkg.checkout("Seismic") to stay updated to the last version in this repository.

Basic usage

Once you have installed the package you can type using Seismic to start using the functions. For example

using PyPlot, Seismic
run(`mkdir -p data`)
download("http://seismic.physics.ualberta.ca/data/616_79_PR.SGY", "data/616_79_PR.SGY")
SegyToSeis("data/616_79_PR.SGY", "data/616_79_PR.seis")
SeisWindow("data/616_79_PR.seis", "data/616_79_PR_2s.seis", key= ["t"], minval=[0.0], maxval=[2.0])
d, head, extent = SeisRead("data/616_79_PR_2s.seis")
extent.title = "Seismic plot example"
SeisPlot(d, extent, cmap="PuOr", wbox=9)

will produce this figure:
