GDM Suite: a software suite allowing to model, represent and visualize geoscientific data and geological model in 3D

The GDM Suite has been developed by the BRGM to manage, display and model geological data, in various fields: geology, town and country planning, water resources, pollutions, natural hazards, mineral resources, geotechnique, geothermal energy,...

GDM Software Suite offers tools for geosciences and land planning professionals to model, exploit and make full use of geoscientific data and geological models:

  • 3D geological model building from geological data (boreholes, geological maps, geological cross-sections…)
  • Geostatistical analysis and interpolation of variables
  • Data consistency control
  • Representation of data and models with well logs, maps, cross-sections and 3D view either with GDM, ArcGIS or on the Web

The GDM Suite includes the following:

Other extensions are being finalised:

  • GDM Logger for integrated drilling management (water wells, geotechnical boreholes, etc.).
