Geoscientific Software

The Department of Geosciences can offer its students and research staff a wide range of (non)-commercial geoscientific software products. Many of these are licensed through academic licenses. If you believe we should acquire some licenses for a certain software package to be used for research and/or educational purposes, please contact Michel Heeremans. He is in charge of all contact towards geoscientific software vendors where licensing is involved.


If you use software acquired through an academic license, you are obliged to acknowledge the vendor. Please use the name of the software package used, the name of the vendor and, if available, the license agreement's Grant Number. If in doubt contact Michel Heeremans.

Use the menu to left to navigate through the available software packages.
