MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — A software company is letting West Virginia University use one of its expensive products for free.
WBOY-TV reports Petroleum Exports Limited is letting West Virginia University students use its MOVE software to model geological structures and how they form. The software is valued at $2.2 million.
A West Virginia University student is using the software to study the Smoke Hole Canyon in the eastern part of the state.
WVU Geology Professor Jamie Toro said the software allows students to do research in ways that were not possible, including analyzing structures in three dimensions and simulating their development over time.
