Leapfrog Geothermal with Edge

Integrating geostatistical analysis with your geothermal workflow

Carry out experimental variography on your well or point data and construct variograms to create estimation models to integrate into your geothermal workflow. Leapfrog Edge has the industry standard tools you need most, arranged into a streamlined, intuitive and highly visual environment.  

An active Leapfrog Edge licence will enable geostatistics functionality within Leapfrog Geothermal 3.9.

  • Link to geology

    Integrate geostatistical analysis into your geothermal workflow.
    Refine or add data at any stage and changes flow downstream from your geological model to the resource model and everywhere in between.

Geostatistical evaluation

  • Gain rapid insights using geostatistical evaluation tools. An easy-to-use editor makes building complex block model calculations and filters a stress-free process with no scripting experience.

    • Complete geostatistical Exploratory Data analysis data using scatter plots, Q-Q plots, box plots and histograms showing probability density function, cumulative density function, and log probability
    • Visualise pre- and post-composite histograms in a single chart to validate your compositing methodology
    • Assess estimation quality using attributes such as ‘Number of samples’ and ‘Kriging variance’
    • Classify resources quickly using calculations such as conditional nested multiple IF statements. Easily reuse calculations on multiple resource models or projects
    • Interrogate models using flexible filtering options, including on-the-fly index or value scene filters and saved filters

    Domaining and Variogram Modelling

    • Leapfrog Edge has the tools you need to define your estimation domain, perform boundary analysis and composite data. Extensive tools for conducting experimental variography are available. Leapfrog's interactive visualisations improve understanding along the way.

      • View an automatically generated boundary plot
      • Specify downhole, axis aligned and custom variograms and see how they fit the data
      • Visualise and directly manipulate your variogram model in the 3D scene
      • Easily create custom variograms from the 3D scene orientation to further check the coherency of the spatial model
      • Iterate quickly, seeing the results dynamically update in graphs and block models


    • Leapfrog Edge supports industry-standard linear estimation methods. Perform Kriging, Nearest Neighbour, Inverse Distance in addition to FastRBF estimations.

      • Visualise estimation results, properties and kriging quality measures on block models
      • Test hypotheses and experiment with copied variations of estimators and declustering objects
      • Set the search definition using controls in the 3D scene
      • Examine data sampling through Leapfrog Edge's unique data declustering object; evaluate on block models to assess the quality of the estimate and calculate declustering weights for Inverse Distance estimators
      • Perform standard block Kriging within Leapfrog Edge with the option to use point estimation when preferred

    Evaluations, calculations and export

    • Communicate your findings to stakeholders and provide evidence of an appropriate estimate. Conveniently use Leapfrog Edge’s 3D models, cross sections, variograms and graphs in reports.

      • Evaluate estimation models on to a block model
      • Create and visualise calculations on block models
      • View summary statistics and graphs for block model attributes, including calculations and filters
      • Export/integrate with your downstream geothermal workflow
      • Integrate with Central to download and publish projects and facilitate collaboration between teams
      • Display block models in Central Browser and View to inform and engage with stakeholders
