Spatial, a term used to describe the connection between location, people and activities is in a digital sense, adding location to data, yet to optimise its use, factors relation to accuracy, completeness, quality, temporal, consistency and others needs to be accounted for before the data can become useful and provide knowledge to an organisation. As data is a commodity much-like a raw material that, when used well, can improve a mining business through the automatic generation of knowledge, providing new insights, improving operational processes and safety and reduce overall costs. Mining as with many other sectors has a series of inputs and outputs that inform both upstream and downstream processes. The complexity of managing the data deluge that modern technologies bring to an organisation requires more than just a big database and a analytics tool. These “decision points”, require good data to inform the user of the next logical step in the process, yet data optimisation innovation requires moving the focus away from the supply of data; towards more collaborative information management across an organisation, automated data sharing, and analytics. A key linking element to all of this is the role of spatial data as it relates to identifying and linking information below, on or above the earth surface.

There remain, however, significant challenges that are impeding the impact of spatial data and related products on innovation and industry growth into the future. These include:

• Enhancing the ability of organisations, systems and people to share and use the increasing diversity of data becoming available;
• Enabling non-domain experts to create information and apply analytics to data; and
• Reducing the duplication in supply chains to promote collaborative knowledge creation, including prediction and exploratory analytics.

This tech talk will explore the new innovations arising in the spatial sector that can provide new insights into how spatial technologies can be further applied into the mining sector. Darren Mottolini is the Research and Business Manager within the CRC for Spatial Information, a collaborative research organisation who are at the forefront of innovative advances to how spatial information can be utilised in a range of growth sectors.
