With the beginning of the new year, I, like many of you, set aside time for reflection. It is easy for me to forget just how much was accomplished over the past 365 days when I’m in the midst of projects and tasks of my own. As I look back on 2016, I am pleased with just how much Golden Software has accomplished.

Complex Data Made Clear with Surfer

Our customers do incredible things! This week, I’m pleased to present another customer story. Dr. Richard Koehler, founder of Visual Data Analytics, uses Surfer to visualize complex marine data.

Modeling Groundwater Resources in Surfer

We are pleased to present another story detailing the application of Surfer in the industry.

This story comes from former Golden Software team member, Jared King, who now works as a hydrogeologist for Knight Piésold. Mr. King and the Knight Piésold team were tasked to characterize groundwater resources for a potential mining area. An important component of the mining process, water is used for mineral processing, metal recovery, dust mitigation, and the basic needs for on-site workers. Even more importantly, a thorough understanding of groundwater resources is a major factor in understanding the environmental impact of the mine on those resources.

100 Years of National Park Services

In a few short months, the United States National Park Service will celebrate its one hundredth anniversary. August 25, 2016 marks the day when President Woodrow Wilson signed into law the Organic Act. This act created the National Park Service, a federal bureau tasked with “conserving the scenery and the natural and historical objects and the wild life therein…and by such means will leave them unimpaired for the enjoyment of future generations.”

Today, the National Park System covers more than 84 million acres across 50 states, the District of Columbia, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, Saipan, and the Virgin Islands. Over 400 areas consisting of national parks, preserves, monuments, resources, rivers, and historical sites are managed by the National Park Service.
