The agenda for this course looks at imaging tool history and what technology is available currently and in the near future.  It will discuss what data comprises an imaging dataset, how images are generated and the basic elements of image QC.  The limitations of measurement types will be considered and appropriate tool choice for the desired application.

Structural interpretation objectives will touch on subsurface zonation, fault and fracture characterization and the analysis of in-situ stress indicators.  Sedimentological approaches will discuss lithofacies analysis, sediment dispersal and considerations for the interpretation of depositional environment.

The final topic will demonstrate how the value of image data can be maximized by integrating with core and various petrophysical measurements, and introduce some novel data applications.
