The first new company project is a web map application. The initial product is aimed at the investor side of the junior mining market for their public facing reporting. The web map application offers the client the ability to view important information concerning a specific mining or exploration project. This includes a selection of basemaps, geologic features, drillhole locations and data, and section lines. The project will look to employ interns from the University of Arizona MS-GIST program. “I am looking forward to help build the careers of students of the MS-GIST program and give them a chance to work with some of the brightest software architects in the industry.
