FracTex plugin computes grey level co-occurrence matrix (GLCM) based attributes in different directions and compares these results. Based on that comparison a factor for seismic anisotropy is computed and the azimuth of the direction with most variability in seismic character is determined. This information can then be correlated with seismic facies changes or fracturing. It is recommended to use the FracTex plugin in combination with Dip Steering.

All commercial plugins require OpendTect Pro.


The FracTex plugin offers the following features:

  • Seismic anisotropy calculation
  • Determination of direction with most variability in seismic character

In combination with other seismic attributes and log data this plugin can be used for:

  • Fracture intensity description
  • Azimuth of fracture dip
  • Seismic facies description
  • Fault zone description
