OMNI 3D 2019 Now Available

Friday, 18 October 2019

Product overview

OMNI 3D seismic survey design software is the industry standard for seismic survey design and modeling. Plan, execute, and analyze land, marine, transition zone, vertical seismic profile (VSP), and multicomponent surveys. The intuitive interface and versatile multiproject handling capability of the software enable users to quickly and effectively analyze and monitor their seismic acquisition projects. OMNI 3D 2019 delivers a range of enhancements and improvements related to project projection, survey design, usability, productivity, and reliability.
