Summary

This chapter introduces some of the types of image data acquired during hydrocarbon exploration and production. This is followed first by a discussion of how these data are processed and integrated with each other and an analysis of data management issues. Finally, an overview of some of the most well-known interpretation and analysis systems is presented.
