Customer Success Story: Géologique Saves Clients Time & Money

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.

Getting a Leg Up on the Registration Process for Public Schools

It seems like the more involved I am with mapping, the more uses I find for creating maps. For instance, I recently came across an article mentioning that choice enrollment deadlines for Jefferson County public schools are nearing.

For those of you unfamiliar with the public school system here in Jeffco, each family is assigned to a neighborhood school, but you can enroll your child in any public school within the county. Sounds great huh? If your neighborhood school is ranked poorly or just doesn’t suit you, you can pick another. But here’s the catch: while the registration deadline for your neighborhood school is typically sometime in August (just before the beginning of the school year), the registration deadline for a non-neighborhood school is sometime in January, and acceptance is determined by a lottery process which is subject to available space.

Hydrogeologist Maps Brine Plume in 3D with Voxler

One of the most interesting Golden Software user stories that I have recently heard was from an independent Hydrogeologist with Anthropocene Solutions Inc. named Joseph ‘Joe’ Harrer. Joe Harrer uses a combination of vertical EC measurement and groundwater sampling tools with Voxler to perform 3D brine plume modeling. Joe is working on a project where he was hired to do a groundwater characterization of a brine storage facility where initial studies proved that leakage beneath a brine plume has caused an impact to the soil and groundwater and that the impact has been spreading with the groundwater as it migrates down gradient. Local regulations required a full assessment of the plume’s extent and a model of the potential migration of the plume.  In addition, a groundwater remediation system is presently being installed at the site. Joe used our Voxler app for the 3D modeling portion of this project.

Creating elevation contours within a house footprint from paper notes

Golden Software’s Surfer program can be used in so many applied-science industries for so many different uses, I sometimes forget that it is equally applicable to more business or art-oriented fields. I had a user contact me recently with the following request (paraphrased):

“I have a paper copy of the blueprint of a house, and on it I’ve written elevation measurements that I collected while surveying on the premises. I also have a DXF file of the floorplan of the house. How can I create elevation contours in Surfer and limit them to the shape of the house?”

Gotta Plot 'em All!

Gotta Plot 'em All!

A wild Zubat appeared!

Last month was the launch of Pokemon GO, an augmented reality (AR) mobile game from Niantic, the makers of the popular AR game Ingress. I must confess I've caught the fever, but I haven't caught them all! I am admittedly not a 'gamer,' and this is my first experience with Pokemon. I'm no Pokemaster, but I have fun catching new Pokemon while walking around downtown Golden on my lunch breaks, around the park, or around Denver. I haven't tried my luck battling at any Gyms yet, so I guess you could call me a casual player.
