“Open source tool set for geology”
2019-08-28, 12:00–12:20, Simfonia

You recently saw a picture of a big hole in space. We now propose you to visualize holes in the ground.
As a science directly based on location, Geology makes intensive use of GIS softwares, not only to see boreholes.

As a matter of fact, geology needs efficient tools to store, visualize and analyze large datasets of informations in 2D and 3D. We propose a set of opensource softwares based on existing GIS components (QGIS, PostGIS) to answer these problematics.

This presentation will detail the different tools developed by Oslandia : 

  • Albion : reconstruct 3D geological model from wells information
  • CtrlCraft : open-pit mines management and optimization
  • OpenStope : underground mine stope editor
  • and finally a tool to visualize stratigraphic logs and timeseries

We will demo their usage and demonstrate how they allow production gains for geologists.
