Seismic viewer for numpy

pip install easyqc==0.8.0



Seismic Viewer for numpy arrays using pyqtgraph.

Usage Instructions

The goal is to provide an interactive seismic viewer at the python prompt. NB: if you use ipython use the %gui qt magic command before !

Keyboard Shortcuts

  • ctrl + A: increase display gain by +3dB
  • ctrl + Z: deacrease display gain by +3dB
  • ctrl + P: take screenshot to clipboard
  • ctrl + P: propagates display accross all windows (same window size, same axis, same gain)
  • ctrl + S: captures screenshot of the plot area in the clipboard
  • up/down/right/left arrows: pan using keyboard

Minimum working example to display a numpy array.

import numpy as np
import scipy.signal

from easyqc.gui import viewseis

ntr, ns, sr, dx, v1 = (500, 2000, 0.002, 5, 2000)
data = np.zeros((ntr, ns), np.float32)
data[:, 500:600] = scipy.signal.ricker(100, 4)

# create a record with 400 traces and 2500 samples
noise = np.random.randn(ntr, ns) / 10
# create an arbitrary layout of 2 receiver lines of 200 sensors
a, b = np.meshgrid(np.arange(ntr / 2) * 8 + 2000, np.arange(2) * 50 + 5000)
# the header is a dictionary of numpy arrays, each entry being the same length as the number of traces
header = {'receiver_line': b.flatten(), 'receiver_number': a.flatten()}

# show the array with the header
fig0 = viewseis(data, si=.002, h=header, title='clean')
fig1 = viewseis(data + noise, si=.002, h=header, title='noisy')

Install Instructions

1) From pypi using pip:

pip install easyqc

2) From sources using pip:

I suggest to use a virtual environment and install in development mode (in-place)

git clone
cd easyqc
pip install -e .

3) From sources using anaconda

I suggest to install a conda environment and run from sources in development mode.


git clone
conda env create -f conda_easyqc.yaml
conda activate iblenv
conda develop ./easyqc


conda env update --file conda_easyqc.yaml --prune

Or for a complete clean-up:

conda env list
conda env remove -n easyqc

And follow the install instructions above.


Pypi Release checklist:

rm -fR dist
rm -fR build
python sdist bdist_wheel
twine upload dist/*
#twine upload --repository-url dist/*

Test wheel:

virtualenv easyqc --python=3.8
source ./easyqc/bin/activate
pip install easyqc
#pip install -i easyqc  # doesnt' seem to install deps
