Method and system for evaluating geophysical survey data

(57)    Abstract

A method and system for evaluating geophysical survey data is provided. Two neighboring flight paths of a geophysical survey are likely to have geophysical characteristics in common because neighboring flight paths cover geographic areas in a close proximity to one another. As such, neighboring flight paths will likely have similar geophysical characteristics and similar recorded data. Therefore, errors in data can be estimated by comparing data recorded from neighboring flight paths. If data from a flight path differs significantly from data recorded from a neighboring flight path, then the data from one or both flight paths may be corrupted and at least one of the survey lines may need to be repeated. This auto evaluate method allows field personnel to judge data close to real time to determine whether to repeat a flight path while still out in the field.
