Geoscience ANALYST Pro offers a low-cost, easy-to-use solution for powerful visualization, object creation, and data editing in 2D and 3D. It includes exploratory data analysis with k-means clustering; drillhole design and management; ioGAS live link for geochemistry interpretation; and geophysical tools including survey design, 2D gridding and grid filtering, Maxwell live link for electromagnetic data interpretation, and unlimited gravity and magnetic forward modelling and inversion. Its live link to the geoh5py Python API allows users to leverage the capabilities of Geoscience ANALYST from open-source code in the Python ecosystem. Get the open-source API package on PyPI. Details available in the user guide.

It is sold on an annual subscription basis, USD $995. The subscription fee includes a licence for a single installation, technical support, and available updates. If you need more than 4 installations, corporate, academic, or non-profit licensing is more advantageous. Try it out! Activate your 10-day Free Trial now through the user interface.

“From the standpoint of someone trying to teach geophysics to our up-and-coming geophysicists, I welcome the initiative of Mira Geoscience (geoh5 open-format files, Python connectivity, and Geoscience ANALYST). It provides them with skills that they will be able to use throughout their career since Geoscience ANALYST encourages them to learn what happens behind the interface rather than learning an interface.”

  • Intuitive, interactive 2D grid design tools
  • 2D grid filtering, including high/low pass, reduction to pole, vertical/horizontal derivative, apparent susceptibility, apparent density, tilt angle, upward/downward continuation and strike
  • Data trend removal (1st-, 2nd-, 3rd-order polynomial) for 2D Grid and Points objects

Modelling and inversion

Forward modelling and inversion of potential fields data, powered by our unique VP technology that can act directly on geological models. There are no limitations on model size or number of inversions.

Features

  • Create 3D inversion grids with the ability to set increasing cell size with depth
  • Gravity, gravity gradient, and magnetics forward modelling and inversion, powered by our unique VP technology that can act directly on geological models
  • Electromagnetic modelling with decay curves panel for data analysis, quality control, and filtering

Maxwell Link

Dynamically link to EMIT’s Maxwell electromagnetic data interpretation to simultaneously harness the power of both platforms. Once linked, you can broadcast plates within Maxwell to Geoscience ANALYST, adjust the geometry and parameters in Geoscience ANALYST, and broadcast the updated, linked plate to Maxwell.

Features

  • Live connection to Electromagnetic Imaging Technology’s Maxwell software
  • Manipulate plate geometry directly in the viewport or with the visual parameters panel
  • Broadcast plate geometry, visual parameters, and data updates to and from Maxwell
  • Provide Maxwell with a multi-disciplinary, immersive environment for more accurate plate modelling
  • Powerful user interface for interpretation of EM data

What’s next? Geoscience ANALYST Pro Geophysics is for advanced geophysical interpretation using VP Suite and UBC Geophysical Inversion Facility (GIF) codes. Includes unlimited access to VPmg and VPem1D.
