New Licensing Tools Coming to GoldSim in Early 2016

Posted by Rick Kossik

Software licensing tools are usually intended to be something that neither the user (you) nor the software vendor (us) want to have to think about often.  In a perfect world, you activate or register your software, and then don't want to have to think about it again for a long time (e.g., perhaps until you upgrade the license or extend the maintenance subscription one year later). Although this is the case for many people, we have found that a growing number of our users want more flexibility and capabilities with how they manage their licenses.  To address this, we've spent the last year implementing a powerful new licensing system that among other things, will make it easier for users to track and share licenses within an organization. In this blog, I provide a quick overview of the new licensing features.

Dynamic Coupling of GoldSim and MODFLOW / MT3D

Posted by Jason Lillywhite

From time to time, we hear from GoldSim users asking about the possibility of linking MODFLOW with GoldSim dynamically. This is important because the combined model is useful for integrating accurate groundwater flow and transport models with decision support, hydrologic, and probabilistic models built in GoldSim. Folks at Barr Engineering were able to pull this off using a realistic hypothetical application and presented their application at the poster session of our 2015 User Conference.
