February 1, 2003 --Computational Geology has released version 2.51 of its Geodes® software program for analysis and interpretation of geological dip data--picked by hand or by machine from dipmeter tools and borehole imaging tools. Geodes 2.51 runs on the Solaris operating system on Sun Sparc workstations.

Geodes 2.51 replaces Geodes 2.50 and includes the following enhancements:

Installation of Geodes 2.51 uses standard Solaris packaging; Geodes is licensed using FLEXlm.

"We're very pleased to be releasing Geodes 2.51," said Jim Morse, Computational Geology's President. "Geodes implements numerous modern, innovative techniques, including SCAT (Statistical Curvature Analysis Techniques; Bengtson, 1981). But that's not all. Geodes goes well beyond SCAT by helping users convert their interpretations of dip data to local (single-well) structure sections and structure maps."

"Geodes 2.51 enables users to export their local structure maps to an ASCII file that they can then import into other applications (e.g., 3D geologic modeling packages). This makes it possible for users to ensure that the 3D geologic models they build in other applications honor the sizes and shapes of the local structures--as revealed by Geodes--and not just the tops and dips at the wellbore. In short, Geodes 2.51 makes it possible for users to transfer to other applications (and to other steps in the work flow) all of the high quality structural control they have extracted from the dip data using Geodes."

Computational Geology is a U. S.-based provider of specialty geological software and interpretation services. Current products and services focus on 3D analysis and interpretation of dip data using advanced techniques, including SCAT and isogon-based cross sections.
