Thanks to All Who Visited Golden Software at the AAPG ACE 2015

We at Golden Software want to thank everyone who stopped by our booth at this year’s AAPG ACE2015. It was an important opportunity for us to meet face-to-face and talk about our powerful and affordable mapping and visualization software.

Many non-users were surprised that we offer software with so many features at such a reasonable price. This is exactly the kind of reaction we expect and enjoy.

Why We Are Excited for the AAPG ACE 2015

Approximately 8,500 geologists, geophysicists and engineers from around the world will gather in Denver this coming Sunday for the American Association of Petroleum Geologists Annual Convention and Exhibition. We will be exhibiting this year and wish we could talk to all of you. Sure, we want to show off our powerful and affordable data visualization software, but what we’re really excited about is what we will learn from you.

If you use our software, we want to learn how you use it and what features you like the most. We also want to know how we can improve our software to make your job easier, thereby allowing you to focus on more important tasks.  If you’re not a user, we’d like to know what software products you find beneficial and why.

All Hands Meeting 2015

This past weekend, the entire Golden Software team convened in beautiful Golden, Colorado for our annual all hands meeting (AHM). This was our 7th annual meeting, and like fine wine, it has improved with age; each year is better than the last!

Every year we meet all day Saturday and a half-day on Sunday. Our days consist of numerous presentations covering what we’ve accomplished over the past year, what our current endeavors entail, and where we’re headed in the coming years. We are always asking ourselves, “What’s best for the customer?” and the AHM gives us an opportunity to answer that question together. Our discussions are engaging as everyone contributes their thoughts and ideas. We can feel the energy increase as the meeting progresses.

Happy Earth Day from Golden Software!

April 22 marks an event celebrated across the globe--it's Earth Day! Earth Day began in America in 1970 as a way to honor the Earth and promote peace, as a response to the Vietnam War and the 1969 oil spill in Santa Barbara, California. In 1990, the movement officially went worldwide when 141 countries joined in the celebration of the planet on which we live. Now, over 192 countries participate in the event! Global coordination is now handled by the Earth Day Network.

Here at Golden Software, we try to do our part to contribute to a healthy Earth. We have an office recycling bin that fills up frequently, many employees use public transportation or work from home to reduce carbon footprints, we encourage digital software downloads over physical packages shipped, and more! When we all do a little, we can do a lot!

Introducing.Oiler!

Golden Software products can be used to model almost any type of data, from the movement of migratory fish to the results of delicate lab tests. Our products are used extensively in the oil and gas industry, whether Surfer is used to create contour maps to display data recovered from wells, Strater is used to show information down the borehole, or Voxler is used to visualize the well data in 3D! No longer is Golden Software restricted to data visualization software. Now, we have a product specifically for the oil and gas industry! Oiler!

Our programming team has been working around the clock, deprived of food and sleep, to bring you what you've been asking for! Oiler, a secret product in the works since Golden Software was founded in the 1980s, will revolutionize and streamline the petroleum industry. Our programmers and analysts have been working closely with geologists, researchers, and other nerds to produce an extensive database of petroleum information, called OILFIELD. Oiler uses this database along with complex photo analysis algorithms that would make Donald Knuth proud to analyze your aerial photos.
