When geologists share, the mining industry benefits

When modellers collaborate, they work faster and think smarter. But getting them to share is not as easy as it sounds. The process needs to be effortless and automatic to deliver the best results, says Seequent Senior Technical Leader Julia Oliveira.

It’s hard to overstate how important collaboration is in our industry. Modelling is not a one-person game, or even a one-team game. When you try to model by yourself that only makes it harder, and that’s because geology is not a one-person truth.

Leapfrog Works 2.2 is out now with even more interoperability and data visualisation improvements

By their very nature engineering and environmental projects bring together multi-disciplinary teams who need to collaborate and communicate. but this is often thwarted by interoperability issues with specialist software. Experts who want to spend their time understanding and interpreting data, instead waste precious time manipulating software, their valuable skills lost on something that should actually be helping, not hindering.
