How are 3D data displayed? The two horizontal distance coordinates and the vertical coordinate (which can represent either time or depth) define the 3D volume. A 3D volume can be sliced in various ways. For example, the data can be sliced along three orthogonal planes. The vertical plane through a seismic line produces an inline vertical section, the vertical plane through a seismic crossline produces a crossline vertical section, and the horizontal plane for a given vertical coordinate produces a horizontal section, which is either a time slice or a depth slice, as the case may be.
