Maptek Invests with PETRA Data Science

Maptek and PETRA Data Science have established a partnership which will enable seamless value chain optimization and simulation from resource models through to metal produced. Mining companies will be able, for the first time, to use millions of tonnes of their historical performance and resource metadata for dynamic optimization. “Whether you are looking at their 3D virtual environments for geological modelling and mine optimization, or long-range laser scanners for 3D mapping and monitoring, every aspect is custom built for mining. Any true digital twin in mining needs to consider geology,” said a PETRA spokesperson. “Our partnership with Maptek provides PETRA... (read more)

Maptek Launches Spatial Data Application PointStudio

Maptek has launched a new point cloud processing and modelling software called PointStudio 8 – a new name, platform and ribbon interface evolving from I-Site Studio. The next generation 3D platform for modelling, analysis and reporting is delivered on the Maptek Workbench, which unlocks data sharing with other Maptek applications. One of the benefits of moving to the Workbench is access to the Workflow Editor for building interactive command sequences. PointStudio users can link workflow components to data and easily run automations in context. “A good example is site-configured registration workflows. This incorporates data import and filtering, as well as... (read more)

Gaia Engineers Acquires Maptek Spatial Modelling and Geotechnical Tools

Gaia Engineers Ltd, based in Auckland, New Zealand, has acquired Maptek I-Site Studio and Maptek Eureka for their civil engineering practice. Gaia saw the need for smart automated tools to help interpret geological and geotechnical features from large photogrammetry and laser scan point cloud datasets, which are available in I-Site Studio. Incorporating drilling data to model geology for analysis of structures and failures is streamlined in Eureka. Eureka provides an interactive 3D environment for visualisation and modelling of drilling, geophysical surveys, maps, imagery and GIS data. "The Maptek workflows played a critical part in the purchasing decision," said Technical Director... (read more)
