Seequent acquired Aarhus GeoSoftware (AGS), a developer of geophysical software. The companies have previously collaborated and outputs from AGS software can be modeled in Seequent’s Leapfrog program to aid in various subsurface investigations.
AGS software packages are used for the processing, inversion, and visualization of geophysical data from ground-based and airborne electromagnetic, electrical-resistivity tomography remote sensing, and other sources. AGS software enables users to create 2D and 3D images of subsurface electrical resistivity.
The acquisition extends Seequent’s solutions for operational ground water management, and for sustainability projects involving exploration, contaminants and infrastructure resilience, Seequent said. “The acquisition will add new geophysical data processing capabilities to our workflows to help advance subsurface investigation and modeling,” Seequent CEO Graham Grant said. “AGS software, coupled with Seequent’s advanced geologic modeling and analysis software, creates a key tool in helping understand and manage groundwater and assessing risk in infrastructure such as dams and canals.”
Separately, Seequent acquired Imago, developer of cloud-based software for geoscientific imagery. Seequent already integrates its solutions with Imago’s solution.
Imago’s cloud-based platform enables the capture, cataloguing, and review of drilling core and chip images from any source to support every aspect of the geological process from exploration to grade control, Seequent reported. Seequent said the acquisition will help advance Seequent’s progression into the cloud.
