What’s new in software
Coming up later in 2019 is the launch of GIFtools, an easy-to-use user interface for the industry-standard UBC-GIF forward modelling and inversion codes, with a Geoscience ANALYST interface. This is a game-changing advance, bringing the power of the advanced geophysical codes developed at the University of British Columbia to everyday industry users. GIFtools is the product of a multi-year, industry-supported R&D project at UBC to facilitate the use of UBC-Geophysical Inversion Facility (GIF) 3D forward modelling and inversion programs for gravity and magnetic gradient, resistivity and induced polarization, and electromagnetic data. This new interface will allow the user to take full advantage of the UBC-GIF suite by being able to prepare data, create meshes, incorporate constraining geologic information, run inversions, and visualize results. Data and inversions, along with inversion histories and all relevant contextual data and geological models can be shared as open-format Geoscience ANALYST workspaces accessible through the free visualizer.
