How to Create Interactive Slideshows (VIDEO)
Presenting data to clients regularly poses many challenges, especially considering that today's datasets are more likely to exceed a petabyte or more. Slideshows that may take hours to create are often instantly obsolete and frequently don't fully answer your clients' questions. With one simple plugin, INTViewer transforms the art of showing data to your clients by combining the simplicity of a slideshow and the power of live data.
3 NetBeans Shortcuts to Help You Be More Productive
I have been using NetBeans daily for about 8 years, so I'd say I am pretty familiar … with the features I use all the time. Over the years, friends and colleagues have shown me that there are faster ways to get the job done. I have gathered in this post three shortcuts that I learned from others and that you can also use when you develop an INTViewer plugin.
Accessing INTViewer Remotely
In our blog post on Microsoft Azure, we describe various ways customers can move their data to the cloud. In the configuration where INTViewer is hosted on a remote server and needs to be accessed from a local workstation, a Teradici client is one solution.

Picking Horizons in INTViewer 5.2
Horizon picking is a feature that INTViewer has included from the start. However, after discussing with several long-time users, I have found that the evolutions brought by each release can be missed. The release of INTViewer 5.2 is a good opportunity to tour basic picking options. First, a bit of terminology. The term “horizon” in […]

One benefit of on-the-fly conversions is the ability to see your seismic data in context. In the example below, a time slice is reprojected to the coordinate system used by Google Maps. Showing satellite […]
Visualize Microseismic Events with INTViewer Plugins [Walkthrough]
INTViewer is well-known for its seismic analysis capabilities. Among the less well-known plugins, there is a set that always impresses during demos: the microseismic plugins, a set of four plugins that allows INTViewer users to visualize microseismic events.
New Window System for INTViewer 5.2
If you are already a user of INTViewer, the first thing you will certainly notice when you open INTViewer 5.2 for the first time is the new window system. The way windows are laid out on screen has changed, introducing tabs to browse through these windows.
A Closer Look at Coordinate Conversions
INTViewer makes coordinate conversions virtually transparent to users. Users pick two Coordinate Reference Systems (CRS), one for their data and one for the visualization map, and the visualization updates automatically. How does INTViewer do it? The short answer is “it depends”. The long answer is that the strategy used varies based upon the CRSs selected, […]
Microsoft Azure + INTViewer
The cloud is not just a set of computing resources hosting web based-applications. Microsoft Azure can also be used to host what we know today as desktop PCs. Constant availability and unlimited storage are just two of the numerous advantages of hosting your PC on the cloud.
Simple Usability Features for Desktop Applications
Microsoft Windows has a standard dialog to choose and save files, but this is not an optimal way to navigate your file system from within your application. INTViewer addresses this issue.
Introducing the Normalization Widget
The Normalization widget is one of the new tools in INTViewer 5.2. It shows graphically how your current selection relates to the minimum and maximum amplitudes of the entire dataset. There are several normalization options in INTViewer: RMS, Maximum, Limits, etc.
