SOFTWARE: Geophysical modelling hits the cloud with VOXI

TORONTO – Geosoft has released the latest 3-D geophysical technology, its VOXI Earth Modelling software. This is a cloud-based inversion software service that generates 3-D voxel models from airborne or ground gravity and magnetic data.



TORONTO – Geosoft has released the latest 3-D geophysical technology, its VOXI Earth Modelling software. This is a cloud-based inversion software service that generates 3-D voxel models from airborne or ground gravity and magnetic data.

Previous 3-D geophysical modelling is effective but requires an expert modeller with skills that are out of reach for most geophysicists. With VOXI, Geosoft is offering speed, usability and accessibility to remedy this.

Behind VOXI Earth Modelling’s speed and agility is cloud technology engineered by Geosoft to conduct complex geo-computing functions using powerful cloud server farms, with minimal drain on the explorer’s personal computer systems. The VOXI cloud service is powered by Microsoft Windows Azure.

Included in the first release of VOXI Earth Modelling is the Geosoft magnetization vector inversion (MVI) modelling technique. MVI allows the magnetization direction to vary within the model and thus take into account the combined effects of remanence, demagnetization, anisotropy and induced magnetization. The result is a more realistic representation of rock magnetization, which is the fundamental rock property measured with the magnetic method.

Geosoft VOXI Earth Modelling is being offered as a software service extension accessible within Geosoft Oasis montaj. Visit Geosoft.com/VOXI to try VOXI Earth Modelling or learn more about geophysical 3-D modelling.
