Modern seismic acquisition geometries tending to cover all azimuths and increasingly growing offsets enabled a step change in illumination and quality of images, in particular in complex geological environments, as sub-salt. The paper discusses the impact of angle range in image gathers on uncertainty of anisotropy modeling. Various illumination scenarios were analyzed using tilted transverse isotropy (TTI) models over a field in the Gulf of Mexico.
