GeoModeller is software for building complex, steady-state, implicit 3D geological models, and performing forward & inverse geophysical modelling directly from your project

How will GeoModeller  benefit business

Pie chart - purple wedge "save money", yellow wedge "save time", red wedge "reduce risk" and blue wedge "rapidly locate drilling targets"

Comprising an intuitive editor, drill holes and grids/mesh managers, and modules for 2D/3D geophysical and geothermal modelling, and  airborne EM inversions - you can manage and interpret your oil and gas, minerals, geothermal, hydrogeological or engineering projects with comprehensive functionality and import/export options.

Geological Editor

Contour map with orientation data including strike and dip readings

  • Implicitly models 3D surfaces constrained by primary geological data (contacts and orientation data together) and/or drill hole intercepts
  • Adheres to rule-based modelling of fault networks and relationships of the pile                                                          

Drill hole & grids/meshes management 

  • Fully supports drill holes and attributed dataDrillhole Data editor in GeoModeller
  • Offers a range of interpolation methods including domain kriging (to mimic geology formation shape avoiding un-folding prior to kriging)
  • 3D grids/meshes calculator
  • 3D viewer and slicing tools                                           

Forward & inverse geophysics modules

Using stochastic inversion techniques

  • 2D profile modelling of gravity and magnetics and synthetic seismographs
  • 3D forward modelling of gravity, magnetics (including remanence), full tensor gradiometry (FTG)
  • 3D forward computation of temperature, vertical heat flow and geothermal gradient
  • 3D litho-constrained stochastic geophysical inversion of gravity and magnetics (separately or jointly)
  • Driven by comprehensive GUIs and wizards
  • Modelling can commence from a GeoModeller model, or an imported lithology voxet
  • Handles variable rock properties through look-up tables (probability distribution functions) or custom voxets
  • Browses to reference geophysical grids
  • Comprehensive post-inversion products including quantified uncertainty of geology-geometry and rock properties                                                                                                    

    The GeoModeller inversion method is non-deterministic. Inversion continues beyond a satisfactorily low misfit level (referencing observed geophysics at set precisions) – exploring and keeping a range of allowable models, and presenting distilled statistics of these, in terms of probabilities of geology-geometries and rock properties.


    Support for airborne EM in GeoModeller

    As an Add-on to GeoModeller-Base, a 1D airborne EM inversion module is available for sale. Additionally, we provide a new service for airborne EM 2.5D inversion (Moksha module not for sale)

Resistivity voxet and section outputs from 2.5D EM inversion - displayed in the GeoModeller workspace ready for geological interpretation, and integration with all other geological and geophysical data (maps, sections, drilling, anomaly grids, seismic sections, etc)
