DC3DInvRes - File Menu

Open data file

There are several supported data formats, which will be detected automatically:
  1. The unified data format with very flexible and logical way of describing data.
  2. Many 3d data sets are aquired in form of 2d profiles, either parallel and perpendicular or not. Then a *.pro-file defining the profile locations can be read in, which looks as follows:

    filename1 x_start y_start x_end y_end
    filename2 ...

    The 2d-files are either in unified data format, the res2dinv format or a definable column file.
    A pro-file is especially recommended if profiles are not parallel to x- or y-direction, so that they can be plottet in Display=>Data as profile data.

  3. Soundings on a plane earth can be read in using a so-called s3d-File:
    file1.ves x-position y-position angle flag
    file2.ves ...
    where angle is the sounding angle from x to y, flag is 0 for Schlumberger, 1 for half-Schlumberger right and 2 left.
    The ves-files contain three columns with AB/2 MN/2 and apparent resistivy.
    Alternatively, the first column can describe the meaning of the columns by tokens AB*, MN*, rhoa* or App* for app. res. or rho* for resistance
  4. RES3DINV data format (see res3dinv homepage for datails)
  5. sensinv3d file format *.gem (together with *.sen and *.in)
  6. Text export file from RESECS device

Note that the electrode positions are arbitrary and independent on any parameterization or grid.

Hotkey for Open data file: Shift+O

Add Data

The data read from the file are added to the existing data. So it is easy to combine different configurations or file types on the same survey area.

Hotkey for Add data: Shift+A

Save Workspace

The complete workspace (e.g. data, model and sensitivities) are saved to a *.mat file, defaulting the same root like the data file with extension MAT. When loading again, the program all variables including options are recovered. For saving inversion results it is recommended to Clear Sensitivity first to save disk space.

Hotkey for Save Workspace: Shift+S

Load Workspace

A former saved mat-file can be loaded to work on with the model.
Attention: files named *-sens.mat or *-s.mat are saved sensitivities and contain no model!

Hotkey for Load Workspace: Shift+L

Export Figures

All active windows are exported to graphics files. Filename(s) and path are determined by a Explorer menu.
Possible file formats are png (indexed bitmap) or eps (vector graphics), which can be transformed to pdf easily using epstopdf.
It is recommended to resize the Figure windows before exporting such that subfigures are not overlapping.

Hotkey for Export Figures: Shift+E

Export Colorbar

The colorbar displayed in the main GUI can also be exported to graphics file.


Termination of program. All windows are closed.

Hotkey for Exit Program: Shift+X
