Hyperbola Overlay Program Development: A Personal Engagement
, by Jon F. Claerbout
I wrote a computer program for interactive normal moveout and
overlay of hyperbolic and other templates on seismic data.
Hyperbolic overlays move and reshape themselves almost continuously
as the operator moves a mouse.
Benchmarks show only a few seconds are required for data rescaling,
zooming and normal moveout.
Difficulties I encountered during development were:
learning to use the Sunview system,
bugs in the Sunview system,
and learning a programming style suitable for interactive programs.
