DUG Insight Release Notes

August 2020 – Changes (4.8-009070)

Views & Displays

  • Add a ‘Show All Windows’ action to the Window Menu
  • Attribute maps: Add histogram and statistics panels
  •  Add section markers for 3D gathers
  •  Show 2D gather locations in 2D line views


  • Allow selection of offset range for gather horizon amplitude extraction

Views & Displays

  • Show display-process crosshair readouts in italic font

July 2020 – Changes (4.8-008040)

Views & Displays

  • Add option to display well gather tracks
  • Add option to display seismic tracks
