Mining activities are inherently spatial in nature. Whether it is for exploration, mining operations, logistics or remediation, geographical information systems (GIS) provide powerful tools for displaying and analysing data. The true power of GIS is in its ability to integrate data from multiple data sources; for example, geophysical and aerial imagery, field collected GPS data, and other types of spatial data like hydrology, terrain and vegetation. Geoscientists can visualise datasets in combination with each other and identify patterns using the sophisticated analysis tools available in GIS.
How does Spatial Vision assist Mining and Earth Resources?
Bridging the majority of the company’s range of services, Spatial Vision has been active in the mining sector for many years. Part of this involvement has been around the production of geological mapping for the various state geological survey agencies. Our services also involve assisting with the management of raw imagery, LiDAR, and radiometric data, as well as derived geological and geophysical data. Other services provided by Spatial Vision are based around designing and developing systems used to manage mining exploration leases and claims. Another range of services has been developing tools to streamline and improve field data capture processes and data management.
