It is a common knowledge that proper inclinations and azimuth angle determination is a critical step in processing and interpretation of walk-away VSP data. Additionally, an in-depth analysis of the uncertainty of these interpreted values requires the introduction of measurement errors. In this contribution, we present a statistical analysis of obtained polarization angles from three-component, multi-depth level, walk-away VSP using Python 3 programming language. Our analysis is presented in the context of different processing sequences and correlation with local features of the geological medium. We show that the obtained values of polarization angles and their errors can be strongly affected by processing sequence and - when done correctly - can give addition inside into features of analysis medium. Moreover, in some cases, even a presence of saturation can be express by polarization angles variations. Additionally, we examined the impact of well-casing on interpretational values of polarization angles.
