Our background

In his last year as a post-doc at the Institute for Data Analysis and Visualization (IDAV) at University of California at Davis, David Wiley kept receiving phone calls from local surgeons and physicians requesting medical analysis software tools. The problem? Such tools did not exist - yet. He quickly realized a market need and potential business opportunity. With the help of Bernd Hamann from IDAV, he founded Stratovan. The company name, 'Stratovan,' derives from the words stratospheric (high quality and unbounded), visualization and analysis.

Within the first year, David wrote a staggering amount of code and developed the firm's first software product, Encircle. In essence, Encircle is a toolbox with everything you need to create 3D imaging software. Since then, Stratovan has continued to grow and opened its new Davis offices in March of 2014.
