Seismic Job Editor


The GLOBE Claritas seismic job editor (xsje) is used to build up processing flows (jobs) in a modular fashion using the available list of processor modules here: Claritas Module List.pdf (3.88 MB) .

The job editor is the most frequently used part of the Claritas package, is simple to learn and use, and can be mouse- or keyboard-driven to cater for new and expert users alike. Features such as cut-and-paste, built-in filename completion, and plenty of on-line help speed up creation and running of processing flows.

When the job is ready, the Run button will check the job for errors, save the flow as an ASCII text file and compile it into a Unix programme which is then run interactively or in batch mode.

Interactive processing usually includes use of the XVIEW processor for on-screen display or comparison of processed output. As most interactive jobs only take a few seconds to run, the quick response and short cycle time make parameter selection very fast and easy.

Job Control System

The Claritas seismic job editor also incorporates an optional Job Control System (JCS) which lets you use a job deck as a master-job, from which any number of slave-jobs can be run using variable parameter responses and control-file translation tables. JCS provides the power of a seismic parameter database but without the restrictions often imposed by a mandatory database.

Spreadsheet and Text Editor

As well as the seismic job editor, Claritas contains a text editor and spreadsheet. The spreadsheet is used for creating and modifying data control files such as velocity or time-gate files, survey coordinates etc.

The text editor is included to provide a common keyboard interface across all Claritas software. As with the rest of Claritas, it presents a simple-to-use interface but contains a host of powerful features for more demanding users. Unix diehards can choose to use vi if they really, really want to.
