Seequent1 was founded in the early 2000’s in Christchurch, New Zealand, with the development of ground-breaking medical 3D imaging technology, that offered a rapid and visual way of gaining accurate information for medical diagnostics.

This implicit modelling technology was further developed and in 2004 was first applied to geological science. Offering a new approach to geological modelling, the software made the modelling process not only dramatically faster, but also highly visual and dynamic. The solution was regarded at the time as presenting a paradigm shift in the depth of understanding of the earth’s subsurface, and quickly became well known as the flagship product called Leapfrog.

By working collaboratively with key stakeholders in a range of industries, Seequent has extended its reach into the major areas of geoscience that impact our planet and people: mineral resources, infrastructure, energy, natural hazards, and water.

Today, Seequent is a global leader in the development of powerful geoscience analysis, modelling, and collaborative technologies. Our solutions enable people to uncover valuable insights from data, creating rich stories and ultimately make better decisions about earth, environment, and energy challenges. A team of over 350 people including, geoscientists, engineers and researchers, in 18 locations around the world, are creating innovative technology solutions, for a better future.
