Visualizing and interpreting sedimentary geobodies on stratal slices has become a common task in the understanding of reservoir heterogeneity based on reflection seismic data. Large-scale structures such as point bars and abandoned meanders are observable but small-scale structures may require extrapolation interpretation between the noticeable parts. Despite of signifi
