About Leapfrog

Leapfrog Geo, Leapfrog Geothermal and Leapfrog Works are the three main products in the Leapfrog suite. Each has been specifically designed for their respective industry; however they all harness the same implicit modelling engine we are so well known for. The engine allows for the construction of 3D geological models from raw data in a matter of minutes to hours, as opposed to days of manual digitisation.

Geological scenarios can be tested in rapid succession, including user defined geological trends. Visualising 3D is inherently easy and enables effortless communication and dynamic updating ensures all users are always working with the latest data.

Leapfrog is trusted by the world's leading mining companies and is revolutionising the way geologists produce models and make decisions. Leapfrog is also the perfect research and teaching tool allowing students and staff to take their work to the next level.

Leapfrog aims to promote research excellence. To enable universities to use Leapfrog to further their research we provide research licences to assist with projects and teaching licences for geological courses. Research and teaching licences are generously discounted and fully supported.

Leapfrog Products

Leapfrog Geo

Leapfrog Geo is the next generation in implicit modelling. Leapfrog Geo delivers flexible geological modelling that fast-tracks understanding, enhances productivity and reduces risk

Leapfrog Works

A dynamic 3D subsurface modelling solution that turns complex data into clear, easy to interpret models.

Leapfrog Geothermal

Leapfrog Geothermal is a comprehensive geological modelling tool for the geothermal industry. Devloping a sustainable geothermal resource relies heavily on understanding the geology. Leapfrog Geothermal was designed to address concerns that impact risk.

Leapfrog Viewer

The free Leapfrog Viewer is designed for presenting and sharing Leapfrog models without barriers. Colleagues and classmates can easily manipulate and explore your models and collaborate for better understanding. Leapfrog models can be explored in detail, with the ability to slice, rotate, zoom alter transparencies and other visualisation parameters. Anyone can simply download and install the Leapfrog Viewer on any MS Windows based computer to view Leapfrog scene files.

Leapfrog Academic Hub

The Leapfrog Academic Hub is a project in motion.

The Academic Hub will be a fantastic tool which will allow you to collaborate and communicate with other like minded academics and global mining organisations.

The Academic Hub will feature a forum for communication related to Leapfrog products and education/research as well as a library where research and models can be published to gain potential global exposure.
