Products and Processing

Data Processing

SkyTEM’s data processing is based on cutting-edge proprietary software tailored to SkyTEM instruments. The high quality data collected is clean and robust enough to process the day it is acquired.

SkyTEM conducts a thorough analysis of the collected data to identify anomalies that differentiate conductive/resistive zones. Conductor axes are delineated and features of interest are identified for any required ground follow-up.

Standard deliverables are based on industry standard techniques as well as on 1D interpretation of data. 1D-interpretation, available soon after acquisition, is an excellent tool for providing quick depth-conductivity information. In areas of 3D-structures quick delivery of 1D-interpretations can be of great value when used in combination with other kinds of presentations.

The final deliverables include a wide range of survey products such as maps, resistivity depth sections and vertical model sections. For selected anomaly targets SkyTEM Surveys offers 2D/3D-modelling to provide better resolution than what is attainable with other faster techniques.

Data QC

Data QC is done in the field immediately after the flying is complete, and preliminary data is provided to the client by the end of each production day. Furthermore, additional data QC is conducted at the head office after each production day.


SkyTEM often consults with client’s before, during and after completion of the survey. After final data processing and reporting the client is offered a meeting to present and discuss general survey results. Additional details concerning the survey and timely answers to any questions can be provided.
