Mr. Hughes has extensive experience working at ICL on developing enhancements to the InSite application including a new 3D visualizer, tools for velocity model calibration, array analysis, discrete fracture network inversion, source scan location and the real-time triggering of data from miniSEED files and multiple arrays.
He has also revised and enhanced the data acquisition software used with ICL’s laboratory test equipment. His expertise is in the use of the C++ programming language using Visual Studio. In addition to this, he has extensive experience using MFC, OpenGL, HDF5, SQL Server, .NET and TCP/IP socket programming.
In total, he has over 30 years of experience developing software, mainly PC based, but also hosted on embedded and IP telephony platforms. Mr. Hughes holds a B.A. in Physics from Oxford University.
The Fifth International Itasca Symposium will be held at the University of Vienna (Austria). The Symposium will features the application of Itasca software for solving engineering and scientific challenges in geomechanics, hydrogeology, microseismicity, and more.

InSite-Geo™ is an integrated data acquisition, processing, management and visualization software developed for microseismic studies and other seismology applications.
DESIGN: Microseismic survey design tools to plan arrays and meet engineering objectives.
ACQUISITION: Real-time data acquisition and processing with customizable triggering settings.
PROCESSING: Manual and automated processing with efficient workflows. Complex velocity models and sophisticated algorithms for microseismic location.
INTERPRETATION: Full 3D visualization of events and objects with intuitive movement through scene. Enhanced interpretation of microseismic clouds.
UNDERSTANDING: Improve understanding of mechanics with calculation and visualization of moment tensors.
InSite-Geo™ is an integrated data acquisition, management, processing, visualization and interpretation software developed for seismological studies. Provides a solution for all seismology applications, ranging in scale from acoustic emissions in the laboratory, through microseismics around mining and petroleum fields, up to regional-scale earthquakes.
Manage your data with comprehensive import and export of raw and processed event data. Locate events through simple and complex velocity models. Carry out manual and automated waveform processing. Visualize seismic events, field objects, geological structures and analysis objects.
InSite-Geo™ is developed in a version controlled environment within a quality management system. InSite™ has been available as a commercial product for two decades and has been used by leading companies for quality assurance, postprocessing, reprocessing and advanced analysis.
Technical support is provided by geophysicists with experience in commercial projects in the oil & gas sector. We offer open software training courses from our Shrewsbury office and can provide bespoke training solutions for companies online or in person.
