Geoscience ANALYST can import and share numerous data (e.g., structural, geological, geochemical, seismic, grav/mag, EM, DC/IP, drillholes) and model formats, including GOCAD Mining Suite and VP Suite. It is the 3D visual front end and 3D data set search tool for the Geoscience INTEGRATOR data management system. Its open geoh5 file format, open-source geoh5py Python API and geoapps application repository allow users to leverage the powerful visualization capabilities of Geoscience ANALYST along with open-source code from the Python ecosystem.

“This software is great. It accomplishes all the aspects I need to be able to spend more time evaluating and thinking about exploration project data, not fussing over complex software. I have advised a number of exploration colleagues to get going on this software; it continues to be fantastic.”
