Georeferencing Imagery Using Well Locations in Surfer

Georeferencing Imagery Using Well Locations in Surfer
Over the past few years, many of our Surfer users have requested true georeferencing capabilities inside the Surfer application. The requests we received were focused on having the ability to use internal points within the image to georeference it; where warping techniques can be applied to get a good fit to known ground coordinates.

The Synergy Between Voxler and Strater: Creating a 3D Conceptual Site Model

One of our power users is accomplishing his goals using a combination of our applications. Joe Harrer, who is an independent Hydrogeologist with Anthropocene Solutions Inc., is using a synergy between Voxler and Strater to create a conceptual site model of a brine storage facility located in rural Alberta. For those of you that follow my blogs, I recently posted a blog article on Joe Harrer’s application of Voxler to create a 3D brine plume model of the same storage facility. The model was used for ground water monitoring and remediation efforts. Joe has taken the brine plume model a step further and has developed it into a complete conceptual site model of the facility. In Voxler, he has incorporated cross sections of the site’s lithological layers that were generated from borehole data in Strater, groundwater and ground level surfaces, groundwater monitoring wells, a site map, and drone imagery to create a complete conceptual site model.

Customer Success Story: Géologique Saves Clients Time & Money

I had the pleasure of meeting long-time Strater user Deryk Forster last year. Mr. Forster is the founder of Géologique, a geological and geotechnical services company that serves the energy and dam industries in Queensland, China, and the Middle East.

During our visit, Mr. Forster shared how he and his team transformed a time consuming and expensive data collection, processing, and presentation workflow into an efficient and streamlined process. Read about this transformation in our customer success story, Géologique Empowers Clients with Strater and iGloo.
