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. Fees are going to be established for the users of Digital Rocks Portal starting September 2021. Please read more here.

2. Visit here for the results of the visualization challange! Additional info can be found in the newsletters.

3. Periodic maintenance (during which download and upload will be unavailable down) occurs on Thursdays 5-7pm (central time - Austin TX).

4. Remote visualization is currently unavailable.
