Maximum offset inline and cross-line

The maximum offset inline essentially controls the maximum image depth and so can be chosen simply as the maximum depth of interest which in this case is 3000 m. The maximum cross-line offset controls the azimuth distribution of the traces in the subsurface bins. We want the acquisition effort to be concentrated on those azimuths more relevant to the image, but since in this case the model shows high dips in both directions, a wide azimuth distribution is desirable and therefore I choose the maximum cross-line offset also equal to 3000 m, that is, aspect ratio of one.
