This powerful presentation package uses the ASCII files of data recorded by an MIT to produce 3D images on a PC screen. These images are under user control and can be manipulated to give a view that best suits understanding the nature of a feature. All the views use a combination of false colour and position to give pictures where diameter changes are shown as variations in colour & shape. During MITview use the initial visualisation generated is normally a view straight down the well; the result is an image similar in appearance to that seen when using a Downhole Video Camera. The difference is MITview has no problem with well fluid turbidity and additionally provides a quantified output. On screen controls provide the ability to add a number of useful measurement aids. The value of each arm reading can be displayed enabling dimensioned cross-sections to be examined. A grid of nominal O.D. can be superimposed, this allows excursions that are probable penetrations to be rapidly identified. "Whiskers" can be automatically drawn to represent anomalies in a vector like form with lines representing the magnitude and direction of a feature.
While views down the well are very informative, MITview can be used to allow the operator to look at features from different directions. Full control of the displayed image allows it to be angled, rotated, lengthened etc. This often makes the understanding of a downhole problem easier. Longitudinal sections are also available.
