Home& Geostatistics


To keep one step ahead of the curve

Geostatistics was developed in the sixties, at the “Centre de Géostatistique” of the French school “l’École des Mines de Paris”, now Mines ParisTech. Geostatistics is the ultimate solution when it comes to modeling spatial data in an accurate and intelligent way. It guarantees precision and reliability in results and provides an efficient way out for: sampling network optimization, data quality control and analysis, mapping, volume estimation, resource estimation, risk assessment.

What is geostatistics?

What is geostatistics?

Geostatistics is used for modelling spatial data. It provides accurate and reliable estimations of phenomena at locations where no measurements are available.
To what does geostatistics apply?

To what does geostatistics apply?

Geostatistics is commonly used in mining and petroleum geology, hydrogeology, meteorology, oceanography, geochemistry, forestry, environmental control, agriculture, etc.
