Geosoft at-a Glance

In 1982, Canadian earth scientists Colin Reeves and Ian MacLeod saw the potential for personal computers to transform the work of geophysics and exploration. From this early vision Geosoft Inc. was established in 1986. More than 25 years later, the company remains focused on exploration and the earth sciences - delivering services and technology solutions, across desktop, server and Internet platforms.

With offices across five continents, and a network of international business partners, Geosoft serves thousands of organisations, including government geological surveys and agencies; educational institutions teaching the earth sciences; and the most successful oil and mineral explorers in the world. Geosoft has been ranked as a Top 150 Technology Company, and one of the Ten Best Workplaces in Canada.
