Maptek debuts at American Rock Mechanics Symposium

Wednesday, June 24th, 2015

Maptek staff will outline how several products can streamline analysis of geological structures and surfaces using laser scanning technology at the 49th US Rock Mechanics/Geomechanics Symposium.


It is the first time the global mining technology company is taking part in the American Rock Mechanics Association event, held in San Francisco from June 28 to July 1 this year.



The 2015 program will focus on advances in rock mechanics, rock engineering and geomechanics and Maptek is proud to contribute its state-of-the-art technology.


Maptek products have become the de facto standard for mining, and now the high tech company is excited to share this technology with the geomechanics industry.


Senior I-Site Solutions Manager, John Dolan, explained the benefits, “These new tools use laser scan data to detect movement of walls as well as compare design against asbuilt.”


Maptek Sentry and PerfectDig do this quickly with the added benefit of retaining point data for analysis. “You can detect movement and compare your data against designs in addition to using the data in other applications,” he added.


The I-Site Geotechnical Module is another product which uses laser scan point cloud data to undertake kinematic analysis, plot stereonets and rose diagrams, display dips and strike, and detect surface changes.


“I look forward to our first ARMA Symposium and to showing visitors what Sentry, PerfectDig, and the I-Site Geotechnical Module can offer,” added Mr. Dolan.


Maptek will be at booth #104 of the symposium at the stunning Westin St. Francis hotel on

Union Square.
