Infusion uses the Microsoft Surface and Windows 7 Slate to create a tool suitable for presenting mining data to investors in an easily comprehensible form that can also provide geologists with a platform for collaboration. Using these multi-touch interfaces, Falcon Eye visualizes core sample data, maps, and analysis from mining operations. This gives investors the ability to mine through visual and scientific data and turn it into a concise message that provides insight into the mining company's ongoing geological research. Data can be shown to investors in an informal and interactive way, with the capability of overlaying images on top of one another.
The application uses Bing Maps to display pins that point to individual drill holes. Once a drill hole has been selected, users can navigate up and down a drill hole to see the data recorded at each meter. Sample boxes contained within the drill holes allow geologists to see both wet and dry photos of the core samples and provide them with assay data. Photos can be zoomed in and expanded, permitting users to see deeper into the data. When individually tagged core samples are placed on the Surface, the map immediately navigates to the drill hole associated with the sample and presents assay data.
Microsoft Surface’s ability to uniquely engage users allows investors to see the full range of physical results from mining efforts and helps in forming a decision on which sites would be an optimal investment.
