Overview map showing 3 seismic lines
Three seismic lines (composed of 247 nodes) were deployed for 30 days beginning June 20, 2016. Deployed along farm roads, the east-west seismic line spanned 13 km, while the 2 north-south seismic lines spanned 5 km each. Node spacing was 100 m, with increased node density near where the lines intersected.

Once covered, the nodes are basically invisible. Good for privacy/security, bad for recovery teams.
