As published on their website, Maptek donated 21 licenses of their 3D modeling software “Vulcan” to the Geology Department of the Northwest Missouri State University. Students will now have the ability of statistical analysis, grade estimation and borehole data analysis as well as creating models.
Northwest, a public university of more than 7,200 students, received their Vulcan licenses in May. In August, all advanced undergraduate students across economic geology, stratigraphy, sedimentology and geostatistics courses will begin using Vulcan to analyse data and create dynamic 3D models in the classroom.
‘Donating software is a great way to encourage the use of high technology at universities,’ said Robert Slade, Senior Vice President of Vulcan Sales. ‘Maptek is always eager to participate in educating the next generation of earth science, geology and engineering professionals.’
