approach to GIS in exploration emphasizes data integration, visualization
and management geared towards the end user. We specialize in the
construction of GIS-ready datasets organized around what questions a user
will be asking of the data...now, and in the future.
In-house, we use MapInfo as our GIS
engine, along with add-ons that are designed for geology and mineral exploration,
and data management. We utilize other software as needed to both enhance
our work and to make data capture and conversion more efficient.
We work to ARCINFO standards, and both use and provide data in several
popular formats (including ArcView.)
Structural Analysis Our approach
emphasizes getting to the correct interpretation of geology and mineralization
through field mapping and analysis, data set integration, and effective
visual display. GIS is considered an important part of this effort. Unification
of standard geological information with imagery is an integral part of
Digital Map Services GeoMax
offers a full range of digital mapping services and special projects, maintains
several in-house GIS ready datasets, and has expertise in the location
of existing datasets and sources.
Software Sales and Training In
keeping with our emphasis on delivering computing power to the hands of
the geologist, we sell the software that we use, and offer specialized
training using mineral exploration datasets. We are resellers for MapInfo,
Vertical Mapper, Discover and the GeoBasemap suite from Exa-Min (including
Data Products GeoMax produces
custom GIS databases and integrated data sets for clients, as well as 'off
the shelf' products of our own.
Principals George Smith
and Cinda Graubard own and operate GeoMax. Both are exploration geologists
with many years of field experience, expertise in working with digital
data and extensive academic training in all areas of Geology. As independent
consultants and as GeoMax both have done work for the world's major mining
and exploration companies and many of the world's active junior companies.
