The manipulation of well and spatial data is a fundamental part of petroleum
geology, geophysics, and engineering. GeoScience Software created to resolve
issues related to petroleum exploration.GS is divided into several software i.e :

1. GIS Interface

GS utilizes a central GIS theme based on ESRI (ArcView) software objects. These
create powerful GIS capabilities within GS that link its well database to "real
world" GIS formats where it can be integrated with virtually any other spatial
information such as maps, seismic lines, cross sections, raster logs, etc. Many
vector and raster formats are supported; ArcView "Shape" files, CAD formats
(DXF, DWG, DGN), GeoTIFF, JPEG, ERDAS, and MrSID image compression.
There are options for layering all this spatial data to create advanced maps, along
with spatial and logical queries on map layers. The opening GS menu is simple
and intuitive, and is very easy to learn. It looks similar to ArcView 3.x, so if you
are familiar with ArcView it'll be very easy.
2. Seismic Synthetics

A suite of Seismic functions which includes the following primary features:

 Time – Depth functions from Checkshots and Sonic Log Integration.
 Multi-well composite Time-Depth compilation in a map mode.
 Extract “pseudo” Sonic and Density Logs from a petrophysical analysis.
These logs can then be used in the Synthetics. The advantages are
better vertical resolution, elimination of "bad-hole" effects, and reduction
of the statistical noise inherent in the density log. This innovative approach
brings geology and geophysics together in the borehole.
 Create Density Logs from Sonic using formation-specific Gardner
Equation Coefficients.
 Create Density Logs from Resistivity.
 Stacking Velocity utilities, including Pore Pressure prediction.
 Seismic Synthetics;
 Ricker Zero Phase Wavelet
 Butterworth Minimum Phase Wavelet
 User Defined Wavelet
 Integration of the Sonic log with the Time-Depth function
 RMS and Instantaneous Gain Control (AGC)

3. Quick Mapping and Data Extraction

The Data Extractor and Quick Mapper allow rapid spatial evaluation of large
databases – test your concepts quickly! The Data Extractor quickly compiles a
wide range of statistics for all database wells to produce an XYZ Point file for the

 Horizons (Structure Maps in Time or Depth)
 Horizon Intervals (Isopach and Isochron maps)
 Average Log values over any interval
 Log Cutoff counts over any interval
 Lithology percentages and ratios over any interval (Lithofacies
 Average Dips over any interval (Depositional Energy Maps)
 Geothermal Gradients to any horizon (Kitchen Maps)
