From August 2021 Seequent View will be retired

At Seequent we are always extending our technology and offers for our customers – retiring and evolving our solutions to meet your geoscience challenges.

Recently, we have been working hard to extend our collaborative visualisation technology. That’s why View has evolved into Web Visualisation, a new capability enabled through
Seequent Central.

What is different about Web Visualisation?

Central now supports the capability to view your data directly in the web browser using our new Web Visualisation capability making it easy for your team. Extending the technology developed in View you can now work with much larger models and a wider variety of data types.

In Central, you can still share interactive 3D geoscience models with your team, but in comparison to View, these visualisations are dynamic, and will update as the project progresses. So unlike View, when you publish changes to a model in Central, your team is updated in real time. There’s no need to re-share.

Web Visualisation enabled in Central also adds enhanced collaboration. Everyone with access can cut, slice, and rotate models as well as leave comments, @mention team members for feedback, and get notified in app or by email when someone makes an update.

We are excited to start this new journey with you – as our Web Visualisation capability continues to evolve.

Key things you need to know:

  • You will be able to continue to upload new Views until May 2021.
  • Existing Views will be available to you and your stakeholders until the end of August.
  • If you are interested in retrieving your data, later in the year, you will be able to request your views in OMF format.
  • Support for View will continue through until the end of August 2021.

What is Web Visualisation?​

Seequent web visualisation is a new Cloud capability which allows any organisation with Central to share a model with someone, directly in a web browser. It is a Seequent Evo capability which is currently available via Central.​

Isn’t that what View does?​

Web Visualisation offers a lot more functionality. You can access all of your project data and history in the Cloud. In Central, you will have much more control over the data in 3D with more tools to interrogate it.

What are the key benefits of Web Visualisation in Central?

    • Work with larger datasets. There is no limits on project sizes and the size limit of single objects has been significantly increased. Objects are loaded in a staged way so you can see just what is important to you.
    • More control of properties and the slicer. We have enhanced the tools you need so that the visualisation is geared towards geoscience. Additional properties give you more control over each object and the slice plane has enhanced capability.
    • Multi-select workflows. Web Visualisation has been designed for use with large datasets with many objects. Multi-select workflows have been designed from the beginning so that users can quickly see their data the way they choose.
    • Easy to use. The great thing about Web Visualisation is that it’s easy for anyone to use. There’s no need to install anything. Stakeholders can now become part of the project, view and interrogate data, and comment on the model without needing to learn Leapfrog or Oasis montaj.
    • Setup for organisations. Central is deployed for your organisation rather than an individual. For a company this means all your data is in one place and not tied to an individual’s account.
    • Access control and auditability. The detailed permissions and event log in Central ensure that you have a clear understanding of who has access.

Do you have to be a Seequent Central user to use Web Visualisation?​

Currently, yes. This means you can control who has access to the Web Visualisation. We are currently working towards adding new capability to invite guest users to Central which will enable simple sharing with stakeholders.

Will I be able to do public embedding?

Not currently, but it is on our roadmap to enable this. The difference with Web Visualisation is that you have more security around who can and can’t view your project, using Central’s access control.

Who can I contact if I have questions about the retirement of View?
