Transform your day-to-day tasks into optimised, digital processes 

ArcGIS for Mining is the first modern, enterprise-ready spatial information platform available in the mining industry. It provides an intuitive, easy-to-use web and mobile apps to access data and information from across the operational mining process from data collectors to knowledge workers to executive decision makers – an intelligent spatial mine.

Using geographic location, ArcGIS for Mining enables data from multiple sources to be easily integrated and viewed as layers together in the same view. Combined with advanced digital data integration and capture tools, it provides an unprecedented common operating picture of a mine to users anywhere, any time and on any device. This enables users to quickly and proactively identify patterns, causes, risks and more by applying basic geographic analytical principles.

Modernise your geodata management, multi-criteria AI-based analytics and share results easily

ArcGIS for Mining supports various aspects of the mineral exploration field and has been the de-facto standard for mapping exploration activities for over 20 years. Geologists use ArcGIS as the go-to tool for managing global-scale datasets, performing desktop studies, managing sampling and borehole data and more. This desktop use has evolved into Enterprise systems for helping large-scale organisations manage teams and data across regions.
