Geoscience BC has invested considerable time, effort and money in providing mineral exploration groups with a wealth of new geoscience data in the central interior of BC, data that will surely change the face of mineral exploration in the province. With highly technical products like 'data' it is crucial that it is both accessible and interpretable. Often data in its rawest form can be very difficult to work with. This project offers one solution to this problem.
In partnership, the two proponents will deliver a Google Earth based data exploration tool. This tool will allow the user to interact directly with the data provided by Geoscience BC whilst adding value in the form of topographic context. Additionally the user will be able to investigate the data in both a geographic and tabular manner using simple analytical tools.. The huge benefits of three dimensional visualisation, a consistent user interface and recent imagery from using the Google Earth platform will provide the user with an exceptional data exploration environment.
