Since in this case my trial geometries are completely regular, the only
logistical constraint I applied was to ensure that the number of required
channels satisfies the number of available channels in the candidate recording
equipments for the acquisition of the survey. In particular, no penalty is
given to a geometry that exactly matches the number of channels in any
of the candidate recording equipments. Very high penalty is given to
geometries that leave many channels unused and of course the highest
penalty goes to any geometry that requires more channels than are available
in any of the recording equipments. For example, if two recording equipments
with 1000 and 2000 channels are available, a geometry that requires 900
channels is given a low penalty, one that requires 1100 channels is given
a high penalty and one that requires more than 2000 channels is given the
highest penalty.
