Two software platforms:

UI on GD-10 Mainframe & Geomative Studio on PC.

Geomative Studio is the data management software which enable the easy operation and high efficiency.










GD-10 Supreme 2D multi-electrode Resistivity imaging system is the basic 2D ERI system which supports online function upgrade.  It could upgrade into  GD-10 Supreme 2D Plus or GD-10 Supreme 3D Plus.







GD-10 Geo-electrical Series is a new developed geophysical exploration equipment with revolutionary breakthroughs. At the early design ST Geomative has always uphold the following three concepts:

2. 2D/3D rolling measurement

2D/3D rolling measurement enable limited cable for long-section measuring point is not repeated extremely high efficiency.



3. Geomative Studio Software
The software of GD-10 Multi-function DC Geo-electrical Res/IP System includes two parts: the embedded software UI in GD-10 mainframe and Geomative Studio on PC. The two parts combined as a new way is available to break through the limits of tradition system enable the system with powerful software.


Geomative Studio is the whole data management platform including device management project management and script management.
  Device management: manage device according to online device and offline device;
  Project/Data management: manage measuring project according to different levels as “ project-zone-task”;
  script management: classify manage according to 1D script 2D script 3D script which can edit advance and store in mainframe by USB port then recall during filed work onsite.
