In today’s complex and competitive environment, GIS offers multiple
applications in the mining industry with tools to gather, compile,
process, display, analyse, and archive extensive volumes of data. A well
designed, implemented, and supported GIS management structure is critical to the success of your mining or exploration operation.
At Mining IQ's GIS
in Mining & Exploration event you will have the opportunity to hear
successful examples of companies that have implemented GIS and utilised
GIS to their advantage. You will also get to hear about the future of
the industry and the role GIS will play going forwards, both in terms of
exploration and mining.
Post the hit from the recession, companies across the globe are trying
to get back on their feet and streamline and strengthen their Supply
Chain. This is that time for them when the right strategic moves can not
only improve their supply chain functions but also steer them to become
market leaders.To withstand competition in the global market
while enhancing profitability, adaptive and secure supply chain networks
need to be built. Supply Chains which are transparent and flexible
enough to brace market dynamism, political unrest as well as natural
disasters. The Middle East is well positioned in many ways, beginning
from their geographical name – they are smack in the middle of the
world, which is where buoyant economic activity exists. Given these
inherent advantages, the industries here can evolve to play a pivotal
role in international trade per se, making them a fulcrum of all supply
chain strategy and execution.
GeoJot, is an app that converts an iPhone® or iPad 2® into a photo-based
geospatial data collection tool. GeoJot allows users to enter attribute
descriptions (name, condition, value, etc) and attach them to
photographs as they are taken, then upload them wirelessly to the
office. In addition, the application geotags photos with GPS coordinates
that are more accurate than is standard for these devices. The app
will soon be available on Android. This is a repeat performance of the
sold out December webinar on GeoJot.

The cost of bringing oil and gas out of the ground is going to increase
as field become increasingly challenging, while cost of alternative
energy is decreasing as technology improves. One of the ways to address
the challenge is to optimize oil and gas logistics. Investments in
information and communication technologies, human resources,
infrastructure development, collaboration with suppliers, and the
outsourcing of supply chain management can save you time and money. It
means staying more competitive.

Human population growth and rapid urbanization coupled with climate change are causing increased vulnerability of communities exposed to hazardous events all over the world.Consequently, disasters are increasingly taking heavy loss of life and destruction of property. In Africa, and developing counties in general, unplanned growth and poor infrastructure both in urban and non-urban areas makes imperative that adequate preparation to reduce the impact of disasters be put in place. There is therefore great need to utilize disaster risk information in planning for effective coping mechanisms of disaster risk reduction. - Norman Kerle, ITC Netherlands, AIDA Conceptual
