Hear what users are saying:
“I have been a Surfer user since very early on and really have enjoyed using it. I am an exploration geologist and Surfer has provided me with much useful geologic exploration information over the years.”
Bruce Ahler, Exploration Geologist.
“Surfer is by far the best software product I have ever used. It is user-friendly, allows image attachments (wonderful), translucency (wonderful). I gave a presentation of Surfer’s capabilities to fellow co-workers and got a standing ovation. It sells itself.”
Barry Duncan, Senior Associate Geologist, Syncrude Canada Ltd.
“Voxler is simply amazing! I find it quite intuitive and powerful. Had no problem figuring it out, and the samples provided with the program were perfect to get me started. Well, this is another great piece of work coming out of your brilliant shop.”
Dr. Istvan Almasi, P. Geol., Hydrogeologist, Dome GeoConsulting Inc.
“Voxler makes the creation of high quality 3D data visualizations possible for a small fraction of the price you’d expect to pay and the real-time one-on-one support is better than you could ever dream of in this world today.”
Frankie Stone, Petroleum Exploration
“Grapher is such a fantastic program! People always ask our group how we did our graphs, and we show them Grapher. They see it working and go away to buy their own copy.”
Sally Finora, Norman B. Keevil Institute of Mining Engineering
“Grapher is a fabulous tool for creating presentation-quality software. It is almost infinitely flexible and is not constrained by some of the limitations that hamper my use of other graphing programs.”
David Suder, Principal Scientist, Precise Environmental Consultants
“As for teaching people simple mapping, I have worked with other mapping programs and always found I could do thematic mapping much faster and more easily in MapViewer which is why I continue to use MapViewer for years.”
Tim Freeman, Project Manager, Rotarians Against Malaria, PNG
“Didger is an excellent product! I have used it to digitize curves on old graphs so that the old data can be used to create physical and chemical property spreadsheets.”
John Kreinbrink, PE
“I just used Strater to produce borehole lithology and well construction logs for >1,000 boreholes in a UN project. Just brilliant!”
Thorsten Kallnischkies, geologist and freelance consultant

James Moffatt, Principal Geoscientist, Tullow Oil
“You know, every time I’ve ever had to re-build a computer, Golden [Software] has always been by far and away the easiest company to deal with.”
Bradley Joyce, GIS Manager, GP Strategies Environmental
