GOCAD® Mining Suite version 19
In this version, the user interface was redesigned to bring improvements to how you work with the Control Menu, Pages, and Views. A dramatic performance enhancement has been made to display, create, and edit drillhole data in the 3D Viewer, open the Style editor, and edit property settings for drillholes and their logs. Additional functionality beyond performance and usability improvements include the new Spiderweb surface editing tool; the Stereonet displays mean values of data; Fabio Crameri’s Scientific colour maps; and new commands and functionalities were added to the Potential Fields module. Many enhancements were made to improve your experience.
Geoscience ANALYST version 3.1
This version introduces more powerful visualization tools and object types to expand upon the already impressive geoscience toolkit in the free viewer. A new Python API, geoh5py library, was created to manipulate and store a wide range of geoscientific data in geoh5 file format. Users can leverage the powerful visualization capabilities of Geoscience ANALYST along with open-source code from the Python ecosystem. This enabled us to create the mirageoscience-app repository of geoscience applications that will become a central repository to interfaces and applications including geophysical data processing, modelling, and inversion codes. The API package on PyPI is available here: https://pypi.org/project/geoh5py/. In the new version it is now possible to import VP Geophysics Suite mesh objects from VPmg, VPem1D, and VPem3D model files.
Geoscience ANALYST Pro functionality has been expanded to allow attribution of physical properties for easy geophysical forward modelling of lithology block models to compare to field data. Closed curves can be created around point-based objects to use an input for the surface designer. Pro Geophysics now runs UBC-GIF E3DMT and DCIP3D inversion and enhancements were made for better model validation.
VPmg v9.4, VPem1D v4.4, and VPutility v1.3
In the upcoming VP Geophysics Suite release, VPmg has further optimized memory usage in self-demagnetization and general derivative computations. Conjugate gradients are now used in basement inversion. We updated the 3/3 incision style so that it ensures an inactive homogeneous basement set at zero for forward modelling, and updated the weighting functions with drillholes. VPem1D can now read a single input file. New VP Geophysics Suite performance improvements and user-found-fixes were made to improve your modelling and inversion experience.
