Custom software development
What we’re trying for is engineers being able to spend time being engineers, rather than spending three-quarters of their time collecting and processing the data.
- Andre van As, General Manager - Geotechnical Engineering & Cave Management, Rio Tinto, commenting “CaveCad”, Rio Tinto’s proprietary geotechnical data management system for cave mining operations, developed by Mira Geoscience
Our software development team has over a decade of experience in developing earth modelling platform and data management systems. Whether you need a quick solution to a data import problem or an intricate workflow, we can work with you to build a cost-effective solution. We can build new tools, unique workflows, specific algorithms, enhanced platforms, and specialized databases for pre-existing platforms or as stand-alone desktop or web applications.
Expertise and experience
We have the scientific programming knowledge to build complex geoscientific modelling and analysis systems. Our team of relational database, web, and scientific programmers develop customized software tools for both earth modelling and data management. Our software development team works directly with our geoscientists to ensure that our solutions not only represent excellence in programming but also sound geoscience.
Rio Tinto asked Mira Geoscience to collaborate on the development of “CaveCad”, a novel 4D data management and geohazard modelling solution for its block cave mines. Our team works closely with Rio Tinto to deliver customized software systems at several international mine sites. CaveCad provides a standardized geotechnical data management environment and hazard assessment methodology.
Vale and Mira Geoscience have partnered to further develop Vale’s in-house mineral exploration software system. “InSight” combines features of 3D-GIS, data management, and visualization with a number of specific mineral exploration analysis modules. Vale asked our software development team to provide for the enhancements and ongoing maintenance of the system. This initiative will deliver short-term business value to Vale and, ultimately, it is expected to provide value across the industry.
