Moveout Data Seismic Services Ltd Seismic Data Transcription

Metaseis® is Moveout Data's proprietary seismic and navigation data QC & processing software.

Metaseis® has been developed in house to deal specifically with the requirements of our service needs. From forensically identifying problems with data formats, to reformatting seismic data, displays of seismic and navigation data, preparation of reports and the merging of navigation information into the seismic data header.

By developing our own software in house, we believe that the client benefits from a data transcription and QC service that is tailored to their individual specifications. Standards are maintained across the company, and overhead costs are considerably reduced without the need to purchase multiple copies of expensive, third party software licenses.​
