Advanced Resources and Risk Technology
AR2Tech provides state-of-the-art geostatistical applications. We are experts in geostatistics, geomodeling, and spatial data integration.
Our algorithms can run on desktops or on distributed computing infrastructures, on the cloud or on your own servers.
Flexibility & integration
AR2GAS is a series of geostatistical libraries with C++ and Python APIs. All the algorithms can be run from a script or a Jupyter notebook locally or on high-performance servers. AR2GAS is ready to be integrated into machine learning workflows for state-of-the-art modelling workflow.
Designed for speed
AR2GAS is the result of a complete overhaul of our geostatistical libraries, built from the ground up to work efficiently both locally or on distributed computing systems. The same geostatistical workflow can now be executed on the desktop, the cloud or on private clusters.
AR2GAS algorithms are designed to work across scales and gridding systems with data that varies in density and quality. Geomodeling situations, objectives and workflows vary. The AR2GAS Python API provides the flexibility to fit your needs via a Jupyter Notebook, as part of a complex python script or in conjunction with other tools. The user has full freedom to create custom geomodeling workflows.
Connect to Database
AR2GAS is built to connect to external data sources and extract data on a per need-basis allowing for efficent workflows on very large models (billion of cells). The data stream is optimized for each algorithm providing performance and scaling.
Run as process
Easily build complex modelling algorithms in python as processes with strong-typed parameters. This feature greatly decreases the chance of user errors when initializing algorithms and provide robustness during execution by isolating the execution from the main program.
AR2GAS provides several dashboards to efficiently and interactively validate geostatistical models. A dashboard presents relevant interactive charts and metrics in a browser. When hosted on a server, the dashboard can be accessed simultaneously by team members for analysis without the need of external software suite.
Geostatistics on The Cloud
Creating a diverse portfolio of geological models with millions of cells or optimizing on geomodeling properties of large models requires computing power and scalability. AR2GAS is designed to leverage cloud computing environments and break the feasibility limits of desktop-centric geomodeling tools.
Property estimations and simulations are now accessible in a matter of minutes for grids over one billion points. Multiple models can be generated in parallel, and parallelization can also be achieved optimally within models. Cloud computing makes it possible to perform uncertainty quantification and optimization on large models with no performance bottleneck.Contact Us
Unstructured grids geostatistics and gridless geostatistics
With grid blocks of various geometric shapes and sizes, unstructured grids offer a better representation of geological complexities seen in deposits. The current standard of building block models with rectangular cuboids forces simplifying engineering concepts onto geological modeling processes. Unstructured grids separate the geologist's needs for flexible modeling frameworks from the regularity of engineering grids.
Extending beyond unstructured grids, AR2Tech is actively developing gridless geostatistics. Gridless properties exist outside of any discrete gridding system, only the locations are required not the actual grid. This technology allows for adaptive workflow where the property resolution can be modified in real time in critical area.
- Tetrahedral meshes
- PEBI grid
- Y-faults, pinch-outs, non-neighbor connections
- Unstructured topology, positioning and volume
Uncertainty quantification, Optimization, and Machine Learning
AR2Tech has developed a toolkit to create a portfolio of geostatistical models by sampling a space of uncertain geostatistical parameters. This approach uses experimental design concepts to create diverse models and evolutionary optimization to generate models that minimize an objective function.
AR2Tech’s Python interface is compatible with industry-standard Machine Learning algorithms for supervised and unsupervised classifications, and regression algorithms. Problems such as facies determination from ancillary data can be solved with machine-learning algorithms using large training data sets.Contact Us
Geostatistics for embedded systems (IoT)
The AR2GAS library is able to operate on a micro PC (such as a Raspberry Pi) to provide advanced spatial algorithms to embedded systems. This is in active development.
Please contact us if you would like to discuss a project for spatial statistics on embedded systems, be it on medical applications, meteorology, robotics, logging or real-time measurements. We are open to all types of applications.Contact Us

Mining and Orebody Modeling
Advanced Resources and Risk Technologies provides software and solutions for conditional simulation and estimation models of complex orebodies. We work with major mining companies to develop the toolkits needed to standardize and optimize their resource estimation workflow. We go beyond the geostatistical algorithms offered in commercial packages, select and further customize the algorithms best-suited to specific deposits.
We have developed a proprietary suite of algorithms and utilities specific for mining applications such as contact analysis, downhole contamination analysis, twin hole analysis, change of support functionalities and grade-tonnage curves, plus several more. We have also implemented direct block simulation algorithm that allows the generation of large models in a more efficient fashion.
