Welcome to the WinSeis© home page

WinSeisİ software was developed at the Kansas Geological Survey to process seismic data for imaging seismic reflections. The first version of the software (known as Eavesdropper) was built in 1991 and has been improved over the years, turning it into a robust, reliable, and inexpensive software.

Currently shipping WinSeis 1.8

We offer WinSeis 1.8 Demo (30-day provisional license for free) for software evaluation, WinSeis 1.8 Lite (with a 90-day provisional license) and WinSeis 1.8 (with a dongle and no time limit). See How to order WinSeis and Pricing and Shipping for additional information.

WinSeis 1.8 is an enhanced version of the previous WinSeis Turbo (v1.52).

WinSeis 1.8 includes a new processing engine, WSeis.exe, with enhanced features that include:

  • A Windows user interface to replace the previous Command Prompt (a.k.a., DOS-style) interface.
  • New USB "dongle" licensing protection, which provides greater flexibility for users.
  • Additional processing commands for:
    • Inverse NMO
    • Additional NMO terms
    • Extended residual statics
    • Depth conversion, and more
  • A fixed *SORT command for the main engine wseis.exe. There is no longer need to use wsort.exe as a standalone application in order to apply geometry (i.e., assign location information to data trace headers). The wsort.exe module can still be used for special operations, however, such as physically removing "killed" traces from a data set.

WinSeis 1.8 also includes

  • Improvements for many .exe modules (e.g., Velocity Scans, Velocity Analysis, Filter, etc.)
  • Sample data set with corresponding .dek files that are companions to the EavesTutorial.pdf file. (The tutorial and data can also be downloaded.)
  • The .dek file extension has been associated with WinSeis. As a result of this change, a .dek file can be processed just by double clicking it from Windows Explorer (part of Windows).

Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8

WinSeis 1.8 runs under Windows XP - Windows 8. Three modules (optional for the processing) will run only under Windows XP or older. Users can install Windows Virtual PC (WinXP mode) and run those modules from the virtual PC. We will be offering replacements for these modules in the near future.
