Our history and mission

Geogiga Technology Corp. is a worldwide leading software company in near-surface geophysics. The company was founded in 2005 and is located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

For more than two decades, we have devoted ourselves to geophysical software research and development. In 1995, our core team started developing surface wave data processing applications and resistivity tomography software, now packaged as RImager. Beginning in 2005, we progressively introduced Seismic Pro, a comprehensive software package for near-surface seismic methods including reflection, refraction, surface wave, and borehole seismic. Since 2010, we have also been developing Microseismic Pro, a package that employs groundbreaking technology to enable accurate, real-time microseismic data processing. All of our software is under active development and constant improvement.

At Geogiga, we are passionate about geophysics and committed to our mission: to make simple and powerful software. Our feature-rich, user-friendly, and high-performance software packages have been developed over the course of almost thirty years. Our proprietary techniques significantly improve work efficiency and ensure high quality data processing results.

The quality of our software and our timely, professional technical support have been recognized by thousands of satisfied clients from over 70 countries. We will always continue to enrich and enhance our software features, develop new software packages, and provide the best products and services possible.

  1. 1993

    Future Geogiga geophysicists become the first to apply the genetic algorithm (GA) to surface wave inversion in near-surface geophysics.

  2. 1995

    Dispersion analysis for multiple-channel surface wave data using FK transform is implemented, a routine still present in the current version of Surface.

  3. 1996

    The future Geogiga team is among the first to implement resistivity tomography in software, despite the limited computing resources available at the time.

  4. 2003

    The team becomes the first to add multistep undo and redo capabilities to reflection data processing software.

  5. 2005

    Geogiga Technology Corporation is founded.

  6. 2007

    Geogiga pioneers a new shortest-path ray tracing algorithm that is over ten times faster than common methods, significantly improving the efficiency of 2D and 3D refraction tomography.

  7. 2009

    The team performs innovative research on the SPAC method to assess its reliability by using synthetic passive surface wave data, then implements the Extend-SPAC (ESPAC) method.

  8. 2010

    Highly efficient calibration of dipping layered VTI velocity models is implemented for microseismic monitoring.

  9. 2015

    The team develops proprietary techniques that achieve accurate, real-time microseismic data processing for surface microseismic monitoring with over 2000 geophones.

  10. 2017

    Geogiga becomes the first to implement real-time monitoring with dispersion images for passive surface wave data acquisition.

  11. 2020

    Proprietary techniques are developed to estimate microseismic focal mechanisms in real time.
