Isosurfaces V4 ThumbnailIsosurfaces

A Voxler Isosurface extends the concept of the contour line (a line of constant data value in 2D) and frames it in a 3D perspective. Voxler uses Isosurfaces to display a surface of a constant data value that dissects a 3D volume. Color-code and combine multiple Isosurfaces by data value to show discrete values through 3D lattices. Adding Isosurfaces to your model is a simple way of displaying precious metals concentrations, rendering subsurface coal seams, performing 3D data visualization of ground water contamination plumes, displaying threshold levels of inversions of 3D MT (geothermal) data, connecting subsurface anomalies found in gridding borehole data, featuring objects like piping networks and rebar in GPR surveys, and many more applications. Volumetric calculations can be effortlessly performed on your data that is confined to within or outside an Isosurface, which makes Voxler’s Isosurface module an invaluable tool for the geosciences.

Volrender 1 ThumbnailVolume Rendering

Voxler employs a direct volume rendering technique to render 3D volumetric data. The Golden Software developers belief that this technique, which is commonly used in medical imaging software, is also a great way to visualize earth and atmospheric sciences data as it allows you to see all aspects of your data within a 3D volume; not just the surface of the data. Voxler’s gridder is used to fabricate 3D lattices from discrete data samples that are gridded  to create uniformly spaced 3D lattices of continuous data where all of the nodes within the lattice are mapped to specific color and opacity values. This gives you full control of you data, where with the VolRender module, Voxler allows you have a good look at the 3D contents of your data including the inhomogeneity inside a rendered object with the addition of appropriate opacity mapping. The VolRender is particularly good at displaying chemical concentration values, contamination plumes, and other types of geophysical data in full 3D.

Contours V4 ThumbnailContours

Golden Software has always been known for its lightning-quick gridding algorithms and its exceptional contour map generation capabilities. These pillar components have been added to the 3D visualization world by being available as a powerful module in Voxler 3. Contours can be added to any gridded 3D dataset to display lines of constant data value along a 2D plane as slices. For a Surfer grid, the contours can be easily draped over the 3D surface by simply adding a Contours module to any Surfer grid file.  Voxler's contours can be orientated in any direction though a 3D volume and allow for full control of the contour levels, the line widths, and the color mapping.

  • Some of the higher quality transparency modes can greatly slow down rendering. Make sure View | Transparency Type is set to Blend for best performance.

  • If there is a lot of hard disk activity and everything seems extremely slow, then your computer may have run out of memory and is trying to page to disk. Voxler requires all network data and graphics output to reside in memory. Several steps can be taken to reduce the amount of required memory:

    • Use the Subset module to extract a portion of large lattices, save the extracted data to disk, and use the saved file in future runs.

    • Use the ChangeType module to change the data type of large datasets to one that requires fewer bytes.

    • Avoid graphics that require large amounts of memory like Heightfields.

Q12. What are the terms of the Golden Software End User License Agreement?
A. The full details of the End User License Agreement (EULA) may be found at The salient points of the EULA are as follows:

  • All Golden Software licenses are single user licenses, where a user is a person and not a machine.
  • Licenses may not be shared among multiple users.
  • Network installation is allowed, as long as a separate license is purchased for each individual user who will access the network install. For instance, if 4 different users plan to access the software, 4 individual licenses must be purchased.
  • Software may only be used on one computer at any time.
  • Software may be installed on multiple computers (i.e. home, office desktop, and field laptop), as long as only the licensed user accesses the software on any of the computers.
  • One (1) copy of the software and one (1) copy of the user documentation maybe be made for backup purposes only.
  • License may be transferred to another user by the registered user contacting the Golden Software sales department.
  • After a license is transferred to another user, the original user must uninstall the software from all machines they had it installed on. Any copies on original user’s hard-disk drive(s) or back-up media must also be destroyed.
  • After a license is upgraded to a newer version, the older software must be uninstalled. Any older version CDs, serial numbers, or backup copies on hard-disk drive(s) or back-up media must be destroyed within sixty (60) days of the upgrade.

Q13. I have a more technical question about the program, where can I find the answer?
