please can you help me, I am using Seisimager2D and in the field wa have done several profiel with 12 geophones and 15 shots and we have done in overlapping between the profiles but sense I am only using seisimager2D lite it provide only inversion with 12 shotsand i and I need a software that can correlate betwen the profiles
You can use our Rayfract(R) free trial. This expires after 30 days and assumes flat topography, max. 30 shots per profile database. For installer see


We support importing multiple SeisImager/PlotRefa .VS files for shots recorded with overlapping receiver spreads. See

http://rayfract.com/help/overlap.pdf and


for a project where they picked traces in Geometrics SeisImager PickWin and then imported first breaks and geometry into a Rayfract(R) profile.

For our .pdf reference see

You could also try the demo of smartTomo, a new refraction tomography software.
The demo can be downloaded from this page:

If you would try a refraction software you could download smartRefract, an open source GPL software from https://www.vs30.it/wp/en/category/sof ... fract-en/
or get the source from the repo:
