Digital Rocks Portal

Digital Rocks is a data portal for fast storage and retrieval, sharing, organization and analysis of images of varied porous micro-structures. It has the purpose of enhancing research resources for modeling/prediction of porous material properties in the fields of Petroleum, Civil and Environmental Engineering as well as Geology.

This platform allows managing,  preserving, visualization and basic analysis of available images of porous materials and experiments performed on them, and any accompanying measurements (porosity, capillary pressure, permeability, electrical, NMR and elastic properties, etc.) required for both validation on modeling approaches and the upscaling and building of larger (hydro)geological models.

1. Starting September 2021 we charge fees for publishing larger projects; projects < 2GB remain free: see user agreement.

2. Visit here for the results of the 2021 visualization challange!

3. Sponsor the portal so we can keep going!

4. As of January 2024 we are actively working on updating and transitioning the portal, and expected to finalize in May 2024. Pardon any inconvenience during the transition. Remote visualization and search are currently unavailable and users have to be manually registered.
