I-Site Studio - Geotechnical Module

The I-Site Geotechnical module provides geologists and geotechnical engineers with powerful tools for analysing structures and undertaking kinematic analysis. Working directly on laser scan data ensures accurate and informative geotechnical reporting to guide mine planning and operational decisions.

  • Discontinuity solids New
    Create solids from discontinuities to determine shape, size and volume of wedge failures
  • Extend discontinuities New
    Extend discontinuities to assess potential persistence across pit or structural domains
  • Discontinuity spacing New
    Calculate average spacing between discontinuities for structural persistence analysis
  • Customisable stereonet viewer New
    Set stereonet background colour, point and line size; add planes, poles and intersections
  • Kinematic analysis Expanded
    Full kinematic analysis for planar, wedge and toppling failures with new auto failure zone shading
  • Dynamic dip and strike New
    Drag-drop discontinuities onto kinematic slope fields dynamically adds dip/strike direction and displays failure zones
  • Stability analysis New
    Waviness tool produces histograms showing variations in apparent dip
  • Automated cell mapping New
    User-defined cells for structural mapping, statistical analysis and pdf reporting
  • Interactive stereonet
    Direct interactive link between your 3D discontinuites and the 2D stereonet; create stereonets and rose diagrams direct from 3D data; display great circles, intersections and poles
  • Productive workflow
    Automatic and manual extraction of discontinuities
  • Specialised tools
    Contour stereonet poles or intersections and create set windows to highlight areas of interest
  • Import/Export
    Bring other data into stereonets for complete analysis; export common file formats
  • Accurate results
    Work directly off your 3D laser scan data for accurate results
  • Safety issues
    Identify structural weaknesses and dominant trends and their impact on operations
  • Easy to use
    Simple intuitive workflow with new right-mouse context menu options for smarter routines
  • Dynamic platform
    Full 3D visualisation for better understanding and visualisation of structures
