Students and staff of ASP have access to a number of separate computer systems. The hardware and software are on a par with that available in many oil companies in Australia.
ASP PC Network
Windows-based personal computers throughout the ASP are networked together to share resources such as disk space, printers and plotters. All postgraduate students have a PC of recent vintage on their desks, and there are two PC labs for undergraduate use, and for teaching and research. These machines have Office, web browsers and email installed, often along with image processing and drafting packages, and, increasingly, technical application software.
ASP Linux Network
The ASP also maintains a network of Linux workstations. A large suite of industry-standard software is installed on these workstations, including code for seismic data processing and modelling, mapping, wireline log analysis and display, geohistory analysis and maturation modelling.
