Capabilities

Central gives you the power to view and control the evolution of Leapfrog 3D models over time. Geologists, Managers and Engineers can all access the latest geological interpretations in a single place.

Track and review

  • Central makes it easy to access the very latest models and data, to ensure decisions are made using the most up-to-date information. A Central project has a history that shows how the model has changed over time, providing a clear audit trail.

    • Review the project history in Central Browser and Leapfrog to see progress and decisions made
    • See clearly what stage a model is at
    • Publish a new revision from Leapfrog, selecting what models and data to include

Data visualisation

  • Browse the model in 3D using Leapfrog’s powerful 3D viewing capabilities in the Central Browser. Visually review the model’s development through time.

    Central supports a wide range of data types that provide support to the decision-making processes. The following can all be published to Central and viewed in the Central Browser, alongside the geological model with annotations and comparison tools to collaborate and understand changes in the data.

    • Planned drillholes
    • Geological models
    • Block models
    • Interpolants
    • Images and textures
    • Serial and Fence Cross sections
    • Point data
    • GIS data
    • Polylines
    • Downhole points

Discuss and collaborate

Projects and models can be shared, offering easier collaboration between teams and decisions made faster. Central helps you build a complete picture and points out features that require further investigation.

  • Make and reply to annotations
  • Attach documents to the project for better traceability
  • Add geotags to highlight features

Experiment with confidence

  • Central’s integration with Leapfrog allows geologists to model alternative hypotheses and test them with input from other experts. Go back to an earlier version and start developing a new model with a different interpretation. Develop the best branch, the one that represents the team’s best understanding.

    • Create new branches to experiment with different hypotheses
    • Publish a revision to Central to get feedback
    • Download different revisions to experiment with different hypotheses

Staged approval process

  • Promote projects through the organisation’s processes using project stages.

    • Define project stages that match your organisation’s procedures
    • Assign colours to easily identify stages in the project history
    • Set a new project stage to advance the revision to the next project stage

Central storage

Manage data and workflows within Central’s highly visual environment.

  • Consolidate project data and have confidence that valuable modelling data is being backed up
  • Publish projects from Leapfrog into Central and download the latest revision to work on in Leapfrog
  • Reduce project size and storage space needed, only new or changed data is sent to Central when publishing from Leapfrog
  • Gain flexibility with cloud hosting. Work collaboratively with geological data, even with remote teams

Share outputs

Easily export model outputs and supporting data for use in other tools.

  • Export data from Leapfrog and the Central Browser
  • Import surfaces from Central projects and update them when they have changed in other revisions (Leapfrog)
  • Use View to share 3D models through your browser and allow collaborators to visualise and provide feedback to make project decisions faster

Data Interoperability

  • Central’s Data Room allows you to integrate any data from any source, which is critical to your project. Promoting an open platform, Central helps you to then build out more dynamic workflows using this data.

    • We are partnering with relevant industry organisations such as IMDEXHUB-IQTM to enable drillhole data to be visualised in 3D in real-time.
