Visualizing the August Solar Eclipse

Annular_Solar_Eclipse_May_10_2013_Northern_Territory_Australia-1   User:Mrpulley
On August 21st 2017, something special is going to happen in the US skies – a total solar eclipse. The last time this occurred over the Lower 48 was back in 1979, so don't feel too bad if you missed it. I wasn't even born yet! And don't expect to see it again until 2024 either (unless you fancy a 2019 vacation in Argentina). So pack your bags and y...

How to choose the software package that best meets your visualization needs

Oftentimes I get asked what program a user should purchase to display his or her geochemical data, geophysical data, or other industry-specific data type. The answer I give is that it's less about the type of data you have, than how the data is formatted, and what output you'd like to get from it. To that end, I've created the following flow chart ...

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.
