Since 2006 Eliosoft designs and develops innovative geophysical software applications and, to complete its offer, also provides a wide range of services related to the acquisition and analysis of seismic data in particular for near-surface applications.
Our activity is focused on the development of high-profile products and services for non-invasive site characterization, carried out mainly through the joint (multi-component) analysis of surface-wave propagation: MASW (Multi-channel Analysis of Surface Waves for both Rayleigh and Love waves), ESAC (Extended Spatial Autocorrelation), MFA (Multiple Filter Analysis), ReMi (Refraction Microtremors), HVSR (Horizontal-to-Vertical Spectral Ratio), HoliSurface® approach (a patented methodology), MAAM (Miniature Array Analysis of Microtremors), Full Velocity Spectrum (FVS) analyses and so forth.
Our mission is to define a robust subsurface model free from ambiguities and thus suitable for reliable geotechnical studies, seismic hazard and risk assessment, environmental applications and so forth.
Thanks also to some experienced international partners, we can also acquire and analyze high-resolution seismic reflection and refraction (tomography) data as well as VSP (Vertical Seismic Profile).
The main software products are represented by winMASW®, software application for the joint analysis of seismic data, and HoliSurface®, an innovative software application based on a patented methodology for efficiently acquire and analyze both active and passive seismic data and provide accurate Vs (shear-wave velocity) profiles in spite of the light equipment and the limited field effort.
Thanks to our partnerships, we also furnish optimized field equipment (seismographs, geophones and related hardware) capable of acquiring high-quality seismic data which can be eventually used to fully exploit our software applications and multi-component procedures.
Eliosoft has always distinguished in the scenario of the geotechnical and geophysical market for its educational activities, technical workshops and training organized in order to allow the end users to properly and fully exploit the most advanced procedures implemented in its software applications (such as, last in time, the joint analysis of multi-component data and the vibrational analyses on buildings). Thanks to our continuous R&D activities (see the list of our publications), more and more people all over the world had the chance to appreciate our work and quality.
We do not provide just software or hardware. We offer the knowledge necessary to acquire high-quality geophysical data and accomplished accurate analyses so to provide your clients with high-quality services.


Eliosoft offers advice for the best hardware/software combination for each specific goal. In fact, hardware and software must be mutually consistent and coordinated. Often people contact us only after having  bought the hardware and, frequently, this is not optimal with respect to the state-of-the-art possibilities (a tipical "mistake" is to buy 24 4.5Hz vertical geophones...). To get a broader overview on the many possible techniques/approaches for surface wave analysis, please contact us before wasting your money and time with an inappropriate and redundant-but-incomplete equipment.
