About Maptek PerfectDig (100 Words)

Maptek™ PerfectDig is an easy-to-use system for rapidly comparing as-builts with designs in the field to support real-time decision making. The augmented reality system presents enhanced photographs of the mine environment coloured with 3D design conformance information, enabling immediate, intuitive understanding by engineers, surveyors, supervisors and operators. Users can turn layers on and off to see site tolerances, volumes and distances, with results viewed on any web browser. Excavation progress can be monitored, a digital audit trail can be maintained, and adjustments can identified for better design conformance. PerfectDig promotes efficient allocation of resources and results in improved wall stability and safety.



About Maptek Eureka™ (100 Words)

Maptek™ specialises in developing powerful 3D visualisation software to help mining  professionals better understand their data. Maptek Eureka™ brings together large geospatial datasets for viewing, and provides modelling and analysis tools to help exploration geologists identify a potentially economic mineral resource. Eureka can visualise data from gravity, magnetic and other geophysical survey techniques. Viewing the responses of this data in the same space as the seismic and drilling data, provides additional information to correlate the resource models. Eureka includes tools for drawing, georeferencing imagery, drillhole editing, surface modelling, surface arithmetic and contouring.



About Maptek Sentry (100 Words)

Maptek™ Sentry is a laser-based system for monitoring, analysing and reporting on rapid and gradual surface movements that have the potential to interrupt mining projects. Sentry is quick and simple to setup and operate. Operations can customise monitoring frequency and thresholds to meet design and planning needs. Identifying trends in slope stability and analysing the mechanics of wall failures improves strategic risk management. Sentry is ideal for recording the points of origin and landing of rock falls. Updating rock fall databases helps reduce rock fall risk in the vicinity of highwall toes, and data can be exported into I-Site™ Studio for volume calculations.



About Maptek Evolution (100 Words)
