The GECO-DMC’s team is composed by young, resourceful and dynamic geophysicist, geoscientists and technical experts with experience in different investigation methodologies applied on many worldwide projects. Our close cooperation with partner companies, academic institutes, suppliers and distributors covers interdisciplinary projects and enables us to transfer this knowledge directly to you.
How we work
GECO-DMC has the flexibility to compete in all types of projects and the wide experience in different technical fields ensures the quality of our work. This is complemented by the use of high-level equipment which provides a complete and quality service to our customers. Our organization is made up of geologists and technicians that provide data collection in the field, data interpretation and the final results.
The ever-more demanding needs of the market for excellent hardware & software tools has induced GECO-DMC to evolve furthermore and develop an independent research department: the GECO-DMC’s CLINIC. We design geophysical instruments and accessories and develop specifically tailored software. In our research activity we collaborate with universities, research institutes and private companies to projects involving the use of new generation instrumentation and the development of innovative acquisition and interpretation methodologies.
Before 2017, the founders of Geophysical Elements Company worked for the SGG company that for more than 30 years providing geological and geophysical services for engineering design and environmental assessment on projects in Italy and abroad. As a result of the experience acquired in all these years GECO-DMC is now an international geophysical and geological service company offering a broader range of geophysical and geological services.
GECO-DMC realizing geophysical investigations in a wide range of projects.
It has developed the necessary experience in planning, acquiring and interpreting of the main geophysical methods. We have specific expertise working in operationally difficult areas with topographic, cultural, infrastructure, and security challenges. GECO-DMC provides 2D, 3D and 4D geophysical data and successfully operates in all environments. Our advanced processing and interpretation services set the standard for quality and deliverability and include data processing, depth imaging and rock physics. The collaboration with some of the most important engineering and construction companies allowed us to acquire strong experience in the main application fields of geophysics: civil engineering and construction, environmental characterization, natural resources, archeology, structures analysis, local seismic amplification and seismic Hazard.

GECO-DMC offers services to evaluate and plan the exploitation of natural resources, with a high specialization in geophysical investigations.
Geophysics is one of the fundamental stages of locating and evaluating natural resources:
Oil and gas exploration
CO2 injection monitoring
Geologic structural mapping
Geological assessment of the reservoir
2D/3D geometry definition of the resource reservoir
Evaluation of the potential exploitable resource
Locating of geological structures potentially productive (faults, intense fracturing, etc.)
Geophysics is one of the necessary steps of detecting and estimating mineral resources:
Mineral deposit exploration
Oil sand exploration
Geophysics is a strategic indirect investigation method in all environmental characterization projects:
Locating of polluting substances
Definition of contaminant plume extension
Evaluation of volumes of solid waste in landfill sites
Structural verification of landfill sites
Structural verification of impermeable diaphragms
Monitoring of contaminants propagation
Geophysics is a very suitable tool in finding buried structures or service networks and can be used to delineate some structural features:
Locating of buried structures in archeology
Analysis of building materials of existing structures (thickness, degree of wear and tear, etc.)
Locating and mapping of network utilities
Structural evaluation (concrete, pillar, asphalt, etc.)
GECO-DMC offers services to evaluate and plan the exploitation of hydrogeology. Relating to hydrogeology, we offer the full service, from the evaluation to the exploitation of the hydric resource.
GECO-DMC provide innovative services to mapping the territory from traditional instruments to the GPS and today with the DRONE. The acquired geophysical data can be geo-referenced and organized in territorial databases. GECO-DMC can combine geological and geophysical investigation with land surveying, GPS and Photogrammetric with also professional drones (technically powered Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems - SAPR) for serving the local area applications. In the field of topographic surveys our company can provide these services:
Detailed topography of large areas in a short time
Photogrammetry, topography and geological surveys
Monitoring as a result of natural disasters
Investigations in photovoltaic field
Three-dimensional terrain models
Volume calculation for quarries and landfills
You have your own instruments but you don't have time or qualified personnel for analyzing your data?
You need to process some data according to the above-mentioned techniques
but you do not have the software and want to think about a possible purchase later on?
GECO-DMC can analyze your data. You can send us your data (acquired according to the guidelines we will provide you via email) and we will analyze them and retrieve the results. This way it will be possible to obtain a final model much more accurate and therefore reliable. Before sending your data, please contact us to agree on the best method and approach for your problem/site (and, please, also give us details about your equipment and goals).
