As a spin-off from the Institute for Computational Geoscience and Reservoir Engineering at the RWTH Aachen University, we strive to share our technological expertise and bring our scientific insights to real-world applications. With this objective in mind, we founded Terranigma Solutions in March 2020.


Today, with our academic and industrial partners, we are working on innovative solutions to enable geological experts and shape the geological modeling workflows of tomorrow.

Our team of geoscientists and software engineers has many years of experience in working at the forefront of computational geoscience, as well as in contributing to the geoscientific open-source stack.


Coming from the CGRE Institute at the RWTH Aachen University, we are scientific pioneers in the field of computational geoscience, and innovative thinkers when it comes to advances in geological modeling. 

We possess unique expertise, particularly in the following areas:

  • Probabilistic geological modeling (Bayesian networks, etc.)

  • Machine learning in geosciences

  • Uncertainty analysis

  • Geophysical process simulation

  • Native VR and AR developments


Our partnership with the CGRE Institute and other research organizations enables us to always stay up-to-date with cutting-edge scientific and technological developments.


Interested in how these technologies could help your workflows? We are eager to share our knowledge! 


We believe in a future of geosciences that is more open and innovative. Therefore, we have an ongoing commitment to fostering open-source developments, and enabling the geoscientific open-source community.


Our team includes the original authors of and some of the main contributors to the following libraries:

  • GemPy

  • PyNoddy

  • Subsurface

  • Open AR Sandbox

  • Bayseg


We also continue to be involved in the Software Underground community, which promotes the development and use of open-source digital solutions by subsurface professionals.


Want to know more about how to work with geoscientific open-source software?


Global and societal challenges, such as the transition to renewable energy and e-mobility, have led to a rising demand for critical georesources. Geological exploration and modeling - i.e. a good understanding of the subsurface - plays a crucial role in meeting this demand.



Digitization and latest technological developments present a timely opportunity for a leap in workflow efficiency and sustainability in a variety of sectors, such as raw materials and geotechnical engineering.


At Terranigma Solutions, we develop and provide innovative geological modeling solutions to help our customers seize this opportunity.


Our vision is to become a leader of innovative ideas and digital solutions in geosciences, and to contribute to a future of geological exploration that is economically, socially, and environmentally sustainable.
