Versions of Discover PAThe 3D earth model software suite includes Discover PA Professional, PA Explorer and our free PA viewer.
Discover PA ExplorerDiscover PA Explorer contains all visualization methods (in curve profiles, section profiles, 2D maps and 3D displays), data linking, import utilities and basic processing, conversion and most display utilities.
Discover PA ProfessionalDiscover PA Professional includes all modules available in PA Explorer 3D earth model software, plus a number of additional utilities for extending the interpretation functionality of Discover PA, such as digitizing features in 1D, 2D and 3D.
Discover PA ViewerDiscover PA Viewer is a freely distributable version of PA 3D earth model software. It allows all PA session files to be viewed and printed without a license installation, with the limitation of not allowing changes to the properties of any views.
Discover PA 2013 - available nowpbEncom is pleased to announce the release of Discover PA 2013. We have renamed the software Discover PA 2013 to highlight its enhanced integration with our flagship Discover product suite, such as the improved support for MapInfo Professional/Discover files, as well as ensuring continuity between tools available in both solutions. It offers a complete solution for geophysical database pre and post-processing, as well as the intuitive display and analysis of a wide range of data. This release includes:
- new cosmetic feature layer in the data manager to quickly create new Feature databases for interpretation
- a new onscreen 3D navigation panel
- the ability to create and display rotated voxel models
- new Line Utility with tools for database processing
- airborne QC improvements
Fast expert results with Discover PA 3D earth model softwareDiscover PA is very easy to use and quick to learn. First time users look like experts due to the intuitive drag and drop capabilities, wizards and library of templates and components available in this 3D earth model software.
Discover PA is designed for geoscience collaboration between geophysicists, geologists, geochemists and engineers. The 3D earth model software supports a range of visualization styles, advanced processing techniques, interpretation and analysis tools, data connectors and custom presentation templates.
This innovative 3D earth model software’s visualization is peerless in its diversity, capability, ease of use and outcomes.
A wide range of 3D earth model software toolsInterpretation tools range from easy anomaly picking through to advanced 3D model editors, allowing the most appropriate tool to be selected for the task. Either build complex 3D geological models, including strate, faults and intrusions, or just simple anomalous point, lines or zones.
FFT filtering and transformation is demystified by providing real-time previews of your processing sequence and easy parameter selection and guidance. In addition, Discover PA 3D earth model software provides the most advanced suite of filtering options commercially available for magnetic and gravity interpretation.
2D and 3D grids (meshes) can be built from point and line data using a variety of gridding algorithms. Advanced function calculators in the 3D earth model software provide tools for the logical and functional manipulation of points, lines, grids, voxels and geological features.
