Release Notes
Blueback Investigator brings long-awaited powerful cross-domain data analysis to Petrel. The custom windows provide unique visualization ideas to improve your understanding of the data. Blueback Investigator provides statistical analysis tools you can apply to understand well, table and point data, 2D and 3D seismic, 3D model properties and surface attributes.
  • Plot data with up to 20 continuous dimensions
  • Custom plot windows supporting multi-dimensional datasets including histogram, crossplots and 3D plots
  • Excellent integration with Petrel allows investigation to be co-visualized in standard Petrel windows
  • Identify trends and classify the data and use these to generate new properties
  • Rich selection of controls for managing plot appearance, annotations, filtering and creating equations for data correlation
  • Petrel filters and functions can also be applied and included
  • Blueback Spatial Selector - select data interactively
  • Integrate rock physics models from Blueback Rock Physics
Version 5.2 introduces InvestigatorPy which allows Investigations to be shared with Python and accessed using a Jupyter notebook for further analysis/data science. Trained Python models/functions can later be used in Petrel with no Python knowledge. Support for simulation property and volumetric case datasets has been added; along with discrete bar charts in the histogram window.
