From Idea to Prototype on Resource Challenges in just a Weekend
This competition has finished.
Auto-Correlation of Borehole and Imaging Data
Correlating coal seams and plies across multiple boreholes can be a labour intensive process, requiring substantial effort to keep geological databases up to date as new boreholes are drilled and geological interpretation changes over time requiring revision of old logged boreholes. Using existing boreholes with their associated logging date and location data, interpret the seam and ply intervals in new boreholes using the geologists log, location data and geophysical data. In addition, downhole cameras and acoustic scanners are regularly used to capture information. Interpretation of the geological structures in these images is a time consuming manual process and large amounts of additional data is left behind and not used. There is potential to unlock geological information and improve the correlation model.
Challenge: Can you create a prototype to interpret and correlate coal seams in real time?
