CATSIM is used for the conditional simulation of categorical variables, for example, rock type. CATSIM:

  • Is based on conditional transition probabilities and the Naïve Baysian Classifier algorithm
  • Reproduces rock type proportions and transitional probabilities as seen in the sample data
  • Enables the assessment of uncertainty inherent in the interpretation and modeling of geologic data
  • Is a must-have companion to software for the conditional simulation of continuous variables for risk assessment
