Wiggle

WIGGLE displays a matrix as lines plus filled lobes, useful for oscillatory and/or seismic data. The wiggle display is an ingenious methodology that displays two dimensional scalar fields on a horizontal plane. Originally developed by the geophysical community, the wiggle plot was created to provide a visual analysis of seismic and seismological data, or any other vibration data, in order to help the identification of events that can be stressed out with the coherent alignment of lobes. Ultimately those events can be related to geological features and/or can help the determination of the some physical properties of rocks, such as the velocity of P and S waves. Before digital displays were standard in the industry the wiggle plot was composed either by oscillatory continuous lines and black filled lobes, both drawn by special plotters on long paper sheets. Nowadays, when digital graphical displays are easily available, both elements, the lines and the lobes, are merged into a new one display called wiggle
