Overview
The gray level co-occurrence matrix (GLCM), initially described as a tool for image classification, is a measure of how often different combinations of pixel brightness values occur in an image. GLCM-based attributes can be calculated in different directions, yielding an array of radial responses. In principal, seismic data can be used to estimate volumetric azimuthal anisotropy.
Specifications
  • Seismic anisotropy calculation
  • Determination of direction with variability in seismic character
  • Fracture intensity description
  • Azimuth of Fracture dip
  • Seismic facies description
  • Fault zone description
Features
FracTex plug-in computes gray level co-occurrence matrix (GLCM) based attributes in different directions and compares these results. Based on that comparison a factor for seismic anisotropy is estimated and the azimuth of the direction with most variability in seismic character is determined. This information can then be correlated with fracturing, faulting, or changes in seismic facies.
