Create compelling prospect presentations.

Larson CGM Studio is the most powerful montaging tool available in the geoscience industry today. CGM Studio's functionality and feature-rich toolset allow users to quickly and easily create large format, high-resolution montages and posters for sophisticated discussions and presentations.

A key advantage of the CGM Studio software is that it supports industry standard CGM, CGM+, and PDF file formats. These formats are used in fine discovery tools such as Kingdom Suite, Landmark, GeoQuest, Paradigm, Petra and Petrel. Therefore, with CGM Studio, users get the greatest ability to communicate geoscience information effectively.
