XGeo was founded in 2003 by Yuri Roslov and Andrea Zerilli, whose research interests involved inverse problems of prospecting geophysics – seismics (Roslov) and electrical explorations (Zerilli). The company's mission is development of software for geophysical data processing on the x86/Windows platform, and it is located in St Petersburg, Russian Federation.
Since its foundation XGeo has delivered custom-made software, both as an outsourcing service, and on the open market. Firstomo – XTomo 1 – XTomo-LM 2 – XTomo-LM 3 is currently the main open-market product line. In some aspects its development was influenced by geophysical investigations of the Russian Arctic shelf in 1998 - 2010. More information can be found here.
The XTomo-LM 3 first released in 2014 is now the company's chief actively-maintained product, with some significant upgrades still to come. It actually comprises two products: XTomo-LM 3, proper – Seismic Tomography System with Tools for Layered Model Study – and Data Preparation Unit 3 (DPU 3). Both products have English user interface.
Another important field of activity at XGeo is preprocessing of records of ocean bottom seismographs (OBS). In Russia, seismic surveys with OBS had been popular long before big western companies started deliveries of turnkey OBS measurement systems. XGeo software was made to order for several different OBS models. Records of those seismographs usually needed some specific preprocessing before they could be input into a seismic processing system. Later, on the base of that experience, the commercial product X-OBSExpress was developed as a means of preprocessing for areal spreads of "abstract" OBS's. The product was designed for Russian users.
From the date of foundation and up to the beginning of 2015 the company was directed by Yuri Roslov. He was also its scientific adviser and main geophysicist. Just after the foundation, Alexander Vinnik and Anna Kopylova joined the company as leading specialists in provision of mathematical support, software design and development. At present, the company is directed by Irina Roslova.
