Datamine publishes resource estimation and mine planning content using animated 3D PDF technical reports
Datamine has successfully integrated and deployed 3D PDF generation into their suite of mining solutions for the entire mine planning cycle. Datamine systems are fully scalable and are used by global mining organizations on multi-site implementations for planning and managing mining operations.
Datamine uses the PDF3D publishing platform to support the 3D digital publishing needs of its customers. The user response on the ability to generate rich collaborative 3D PDF mine planning documents with supporting technical data has been well received.
“The integration of PDF3D into Datamine solutions is a great way of adding 3D content to mine planning and operational reports” said Andy Lapworth, Datamine CTO. “This integration helps to document and communicate key points in the resource development cycle.”
PDF3D leverages the robust publishing features of Adobe Acrobat and Reader along with the expanding the functionality of the free Adobe reader without plug-in enables enterprises to data exchange and collaborate using 3D along with 2D technical data. Development cycle sequences showing progressive extraction profiles of a mine can be published into PDF so users can play-back the sequence as a local animation for review. The PDF3D platform helps to create standard documentation that includes key 2D and rich 3D digital content including dynamic animation to support and improve team collaboration across the enterprise.
