MapInfo Discover has been the leading Geographical Information System (GIS) for the exploration and mining industry for close to 20 years. The package specializes in data collection, technical data management, geographical information analysis, integration, modelling and visualization.
MapInfo Discover for MapInfo Pro is the preferred geographical information system package for geologists, environmental scientists, cartographers, exploration managers and database administrators.
Geographical information system software designed by geoscientists for geoscientists
Since its release in 1994 MapInfo Discover with MapInfo Pro has become the premier geographical information system for geoscientists and businesses in the natural resources sector. Crucially the software has been developed by a team of practicing geoscientists with wide experience in the natural resources industry.
MapInfo Discover aims to:
integrate data from multiple sources in a unified geospatial environment
provide specialists with the most up-to-date tools in a powerful but easy-to-use framework.
MapInfo Discover with MapInfo Pro
Together MapInfo Discover and MapInfo Pro provide a geographical information system package with a range of general-purpose and specialized capabilities for geoscience professionals. These include:
Geographical information analysis:
State-of-the-art analytical tools capable of revealing trends and associations in information previously hidden by traditional methods.
An extensive range of statistical geostatistical graphical modeling and visualization tools that recognize trends and anomalies in multi-variate data acquired from multiple sources.
Assists in the identification and elimination of false anomalies in geographical information that can arise from sampling and assaying errors or geological bias.
A comprehensive set of surface gridding tools suitable for modeling contouring and visualizing any type of information from geographical geochemical geophysical hydrogeological meteorological topographic chemical and environmental surveys.
A wide selection of gridding algorithms to create surface models from located point line and region values. Resulting grid values can be queried and modified with a versatile collection of transformation tools.
Compute curvature slope aspect volumes and other surface properties or use the versatile grid calculator to derive values from user-defined expressions.
Capture spatial information:
Accurately and efficiently capture spatial information from historical maps for the evaluation of sampling data grid creation or to enhance geographical maps and sections.
Sophisticated digitizing and object editing tools ensure users maximize the value of all forms of data both electronic and physical.
Make professional maps of any size and scale incorporating all related spatial data objects filtered and sun-shaded grids contours graphics overlays geo-located raster images structural symbols legends graphs tables scale bars and other mapping objects.
A rich set of productivity tools enhances the experience of MapInfo Pro users in addition to some specialized utilities for geoscientists.
Enhanced set of layer window table and data information tools comprises a multitude of shortcuts and useful new functions which make complex and repetitive tasks easy to perform.
Evaluate geographical information system data:
The feature-packed Drillhole module enables the visualization and performance of detailed analyses of drillholes and costeans in cross-sections and plans.
The true spatial context of all data is maintained allowing the overlay of all other real-world GIS information. This might include geophysical modelling geological and regolith mapping interpolated geochemical surfaces and topographic grids.
