Research solutions


Leapfrog software can greatly enhance your academic research and projects. Leapfrog produces geological models in hours or days rather than weeks or months. This can free up your time to focus on interpreting the geology, considering multiple hypotheses, and ...all those extracurricular activities.

There is no better way to communicate what is going on underground than with Leapfrog. It brings the geology to life, and makes it easily understood by everyone. Leapfrog models will really add an edge to your research.
