The ImageBox widget belongs to a family of widgets for spatiotemporal exploration of the properties and variables of an oilfield, which we have developed for PetroSynapsis software. These PetroSynapsis widgets have spatiotemporal sampling capabilities, which means that if a property or a variable of the reservoir varies over time then this property is displayed dynamically. This feature makes these widgets an excellent tool for assessing global phenomena occurring at the oil field during the simulations.
This widget is associated with the iBox format which was designed to store simulation cubes in our software called PetroSynapsis. The upper figure shows an ImageBox widget containing an oil well, positioned in such a way that the widget is showing the reservoir properties in the vicinity of the well trajectory. The first seven images show some of the properties of the reservoir. The last five images allow us to visualize a temporal sequence (instants 0, 1, 3, 7 and 14) of a variable which has been generated artificially as a Gaussian that expands in 3D space between two horizons.
