Innovation in Data
Visualisation & Integration

The exploration industry faces the challenge of finding mineral deposits to support a global population expected to grow beyond 9 billion in 2050.

Geoscience data is critical to exploration success, and yet increased expenditure on acquiring more data has not translated into higher discovery rates. Exploration organizations are therefore seeking to maximize the value of their existing data, and technology, to prioritize opportunities and select the best drill targets. As projects move deeper under cover, modern exploration scenarios require explorers to integrate and assess all available data, gain even greater insights and build improved exploration models. In recognition, that effective data integration and visualisation of our data sets remains one of our greatest challenges, we are hosting the Frank Arnott Award as a ‘collaborative’ challenge, focused on innovation in data
integration and visualisation.
