Geoscience INTEGRATOR is the industry-leading data management and computational framework required to directly address the problem of quantitatively integrating 3D and 4D mineral exploration or rock engineering data sets and interpretation. It brings together structured and unstructured data and interpretation, from drillholes to all types of geological, geophysical, geochemical, and geotechnical data. It is fully 4D, tracking both space and time. From its web interface, documents and files can be stored, managed, and linked to data and interpretation to provide reporting, metadata, and contextual links.
Most importantly, the system provides a “data fusion” capability specifically aimed at mining industry problems. It does this by maintaining 3D earth model and 4D mine model geometrical data structures, upon which the multiple data sets are projected, interpolated, upscaled, downscaled, or otherwise processed appropriately for each data type so that the variables of importance for each problem can be co-located in space and time, a requirement for the application of any analytics or AI algorithms. In the domain of geotechnical mine safety, mine engineers know, for example, that rock burst hazard is a function of geology, stress, mine sequencing, rock quality, and other variables, yet without Geoscience INTEGRATOR they have no capability to quantitatively integrate them. In mineral exploration, geological and geophysical data, for example, are visually overlaid, often in 3D, and interpreted together by knowledgeable staff, but the current systems in place fall short of true quantitative data fusion to which modern analytics or AI can be applied.
Customized links to our industry-leading earth modelling application GOCAD Mining Suite and powerful 3D viewer Geoscience ANALYST provide a strong visual and quantitative link between data and model. Embedded Business Intelligence functionality provides access to a range of charts, tables, and other data views. Standard data import functionality may be augmented by the creation of customized links to any data source, including real-time data feeds.
