Golden Software's Mapping Software Lineup Put To The Test

Users often combine Golden Software's mapping and griding software products to produce their final project. In the summer of 2007, a study was conducted by Dr. Richard Crawford of the Prince William Sound Science Center (PWSSC) in conjunction with the Valdez Fisheries Development Association to develop a tool to enhance the evaluation of fish abundance with their commercial-grade echo sounders. The goal was to maximize the harvesting of brood stock at the Solomon Gulch Hatchery. For their analysis, PWSSC used a combination of Surfer, Voxler, and Grapher to complete the study of Enhancing in-house assessment of pink salmon returns at Solomon Gulch Hatchery in Alaska. See the full report for additional information.

Geophysics for Geothermal Exploration Using Golden Software's Lineup of Mapping Software

The Dewhurst Group is a global geophysical exploration company that specializes exclusively on site selection for geothermal exploration and geothermal power development. The Dewhurst Group consists of a team of geologists, engineers, and geophysicists that integrate geophysics, geologic mapping, and geochemistry to pinpoint geothermal sources for electric power generation. The group relies heavily on both broadband magnetotelluric (BMT) and low frequency magnetotelluric (LMT) instrumentation.  MT instruments are designed and built in collaboration with the Russian Academy of Sciences and Vega Geophysics. Typically, the instruments are capable of acquiring resistivity values from a few meters in depth to many kilometers. With the LMT equipment it is often possible to gather data at depths as far down as the Mohorovicic discontinuity, the boundary between the Earth’s crust and mantle. Information at such depths can be helpful in understanding the tectonics that might drive a shallower geothermal source and related “plumbing” system.

Meet Voxler 4 - Golden Software's 3D Mapping Software

2015 has been a huge year of innovations at Golden Software, where we have released new versions of both Surfer and MapViewer. The big news for the year at Golden Software is not quite over yet. Voxler 4, released this morning, joins the compelling team of releases for 2015! Voxler 4, Golden Software’s 3D well and volumetric data visualization application, is designed to fit well in the geosciences because of its well and borehole data rendering and its 3D gridding capabilities. Voxler 4 is also very appealing to users outside of the geosciences realm, stemming from the immense list of supported data formats including numerous image formats, 2D and 3D point data formats, vector and GIS data formats, and countless grid and 3D lattice formats. Almost any type of 2D and 3D data can be visualized in Voxler!

Displaying Medical Imagery in Voxler 3

Though many users of Golden Software products display data used in geology, oil and gas, and other geoscience-based industries, many other types of data can be modelled in our software! This week, I'll show you an example by displaying MRI and CT scan imagery in Voxler. I'll be using data in the form of DICOM files and Voxler VDAT files. Please note that DICOM is a container format, so the data may be formatted differently in different DICOM files. This means it is possible that some files may be formatted in a manner that Voxler cannot understand.
