New open source software to process GPR data - UgCS GeoHammer

Post by ADobrovolskiy »

We have published a beta version of UgCS GeoHummer

It allows basic operations with seg-y files. Especially useful with airborne GPR data, where we can collect dozens of kilometers of profiles per day.

And GeoHammer works on Mac!

Basic steps and workflow

1. Download the latest build - https://github.com/ugcs/UgCS-GeoHammer/releases (select zip file)

2. Extract files to any folder

3. Start app using start.cmd (on Windows) or start.sh (on Mac or Linux)

4. Drag and drop SGY files to the application window

Sample files you can get here - https://files.ugcs.com/s/5GgBDRg8TH6kd7a (gas pipes survey)

You will see the track on the map and profile in the center

5. Click Select button and using rectangular selection tool select area of interest

6. Click Crop

7. Click Background removal (button on top) and adjust contrast

8. Using double clicks you can sync positions on the map and in profile, and insert marks where you want

When you save the files, flags will be saved as marks in sgy files, additional markup will be saved in separate files.

Idea is to simplify pre-processing of large amounts of GPR data and allow survey results assessment by not geophysicists in the field. It will never be a replacement for full-blown geophysical packages like Radan, Prism2, etc.

Hi,

most probably you don't have appropriate Java version on your computer

Please download Java 8 and install - https://www.oracle.com/java/technologie ... loads.html - scroll down to the end of the page and select package for Windows x64
