About the Software
OpendTect started life as an open source seismic interpretation system back in 2003. It was in 2009, however, that the General Public License (GPL) was adopted and the system became truly open source. Since then the user base has grown exponentially. Downloaded over 140,000 times, OpendTect is today used by tens of thousands of of open source, academic and commercial users.
The open source model has proven itself a viable business model with benefits to all users and software vendors alike. Open source users can use commercial quality software to perform seismic interpretation services and can gain access to this software free-of-charge even for commercial work. Academic users get free access to the commercial plugins, which improves the level of education and R&D. Commercial users fuel the system with license fees, maintenance & support fees and by sponsoring new developments. In return they get access to advanced, often unique work flows enabling them to extract more geologic information from their seismic data at considerably lower costs than comparable commercial systems.
