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.

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.

Free Seismic Data and Maps from USGS

There have been many reports of earthquakes in recent news. Areas from Nepal to Japan to Papua New Guinea to the United States have been struck by earthquakes, big and small.

Do You Use GIS Software Without Knowing It?

Forbes Magazine recently published a five-part series about GIS (geographic information systems). GIS combines geographic, spatial, and other information into a dynamic system.

MapViewer and Surfer are often used to create visually stunning maps to present layers of data in a meaningful way, Voxler can be used to present geographic and other data in true 3D, and Strater, Didger, and Grapher also have various applications in GIS.

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.
