Geoscience ANALYST Pro offers a low-cost, easy-to-use solution for powerful visualization, object creation, and data editing in 2D and 3D. It includes exploratory data analysis with k-means clustering; drillhole design and management; ioGAS live link for geochemistry interpretation; and geophysical tools including survey design, 2D gridding and grid filtering, Maxwell live link for electromagnetic data interpretation, and unlimited gravity and magnetic forward modelling and inversion. Its live link to the GEOH5Py Python API allows users to leverage the capabilities of Geoscience ANALYST from open-source code in the Python ecosystem. Get the open-source API package on PyPI. More details available in the user guide.

Geoscience ANALYST Pro is sold on an annual subscription basis for USD $995. The subscription fee includes one licence key for a single installation, technical support, and available updates. If you need more than 4 installations, corporate, academic, or non-profit licensing will be more advantageous for you.

Would you like to try it first?

  • If you already have Geoscience ANALYST free viewer installed, you can activate your 10-day free trial at any time through the software interface: go to the File menu, click on Licence Management, then click on the 10-day trial button. Once activated, the trial cannot be stopped or postponed.
  • If you haven’t used Geoscience ANALYST before, you can download it here. Then, you can follow the previous steps to activate your 10-day free trial.

“From the standpoint of someone trying to teach geophysics to our up-and-coming geophysicists, I welcome the initiative of Mira Geoscience (geoh5 open-format files, Python connectivity, and Geoscience ANALYST). It provides them with skills that they will be able to use throughout their career since Geoscience ANALYST encourages them to learn what happens behind the interface rather than learning an interface.”

Modelling and inversion

Forward modelling and inversion of potential fields data, powered by our unique VP technology that can act directly on geological models. There are no limitations on model size or number of inversions.


  • Create 3D inversion grids with the ability to set increasing cell size with depth
  • Gravity, gravity gradient, and magnetics forward modelling and inversion, powered by our unique VP technology that can act directly on geological models
  • Electromagnetic modelling with decay curves panel for data analysis, quality control, and filtering

Maxwell Link

Dynamically link to EMIT’s Maxwell electromagnetic data interpretation to simultaneously harness the power of both platforms. Once linked, you can broadcast plates within Maxwell to Geoscience ANALYST, adjust the geometry and parameters in Geoscience ANALYST, and broadcast the updated, linked plate to Maxwell.


  • Live connection to Electromagnetic Imaging Technology’s Maxwell software
  • Manipulate plate geometry directly in the viewport or with the visual parameters panel
  • Broadcast plate geometry, visual parameters, and data updates to and from Maxwell
  • Provide Maxwell with a multi-disciplinary, immersive environment for more accurate plate modelling
