segy2grd - Converting SEGY file to grd file format

       segy2grd reads an IEEE SEGY file and creates a binary grdfile. Either a
       simple mapping (equivalent to xyz2grd -Z) or a more complicated averag-
       ing  where  a  particular  grid cell includes values from more than one
       sample in the SEGY file can be done.  segy2grd will report if  some  of
       the nodes are not filled in with data. Such unconstrained nodes are set
       to a value specified by the user [Default is  NaN].   Nodes  with  more
       than one value will be set to the average value.

              ASCII [or binary] file holding z or (x,y,z) values. xyz triplets
              do not have to be sorted (for binary triplets, see -b). 1-column
              z tables must be sorted and the -Z must be set).

       -G     grdfile is the name of the binary output grdfile.

       -I     x_inc  [and  optionally  y_inc] is the grid spacing. Append m to
              indicate minutes or c to indicate seconds.

       -R     west, east, south, and north specify the Region of interest.  To
              specify boundaries in degrees and minutes [and seconds], use the
              dd:mm[:ss] format. Append r if lower left and  upper  right  map
              coordinates are given instead of wesn.


       -A     Add  up  multiple  values  that belong to the same node (same as
              -Az).  Append n to simply count the number of data  points  that
              were assigned to each node.  [Default (no -A option) will calcu-
              late mean value]. Not used for simple mapping.

       -D     Give values for xunit, yunit, zunit, scale, offset,  title,  and
              remark.   To  leave some of these values untouched, specify = as
              the value.

       -F     Force pixel registration [Default is grid registration].

       -N     No data. Set nodes with no input sample to this  value  [Default
              is NaN].

       -S     set  variable  spacing header is c for cdp, o for offset, b<num-
              ber> for 4-byte float starting at byte number  If  -S  not  set,
              assumes even spacing of samples at the dx, dy supplied with -I

       -L     Override number of samples in each trace

       -X     applies  scalar  x-scale to coordinates in trace header to match
              the coordinates specified in -R

              To create a grdfile from an even spaced SEGY file test.segy, try

              segy2grd test.segy -I0.1/0.1 -Gtest.grd -R198/208/18/25 -V

              Note  that  this  will read in 18-25s (or km) on each trace, but
              the first trace will be assumed to be at X=198

              To create a grdfile  from  the  SEGY  file  test.segy,  locating
              traces  according to the CDP number, where there are 10 CDPs per
              km and the sample interval is 0.1, try

              segy2grd test.segy -Gtest.grd -R0/100/0/10  -I0.5/0.2  -V  -X0.1

              Because the grid interval is larger than the SEGY file sampling,
              the individual samples will be averaged in bins
