Geosoft will attend the Near Surface Geophysics Group Field Day Exhibition to demonstrate the use of UX-Analyze for Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) classification, working with data from the new Geometrics MetalMapper 2x2 system.
Classification is the process of analyzing data to decide whether the source of an anomaly is a hazardous target of interest (TOI), and in some cases, even deciding which specific type of munition may be present. During munition clean-up projects, most of the items excavated are harmless scrap metal (or ‘clutter’). If geophysical targets can be determined to be non-hazardous without digging, they can be left unexcavated.
For UXO projects using advanced electromagnetic (EM) geophysical data such as that from the MetalMapper and similar instruments, UX-Analyze provides a software solution for data processing, modelling and target classification. UX-Analyze allows you to select target signatures of interest, model the data and classify the results from static (cued over known targets) or dynamic surveys. These capabilities are incorporated into a complete workflow with easy to use tools for the following main functions:
- Prepare Data for Analysis - Import data, quality checks, apply data corrections.
- Find Targets - Automated and manual target picking including “Informed source selection”
- Analyze- Inversions (solvers), target libraries
- Classify and Rank - Find targets matching signature library and find unexpected TOI, classify and rank targets for excavation or for follow-up static survey.
