PG Ventures, the digital innovation arm of TSR Poland, discovered the powers of CATALYST’s ground displacement data when exploring solutions to address issues related to abandoned mines.
What followed was a collaboration – made possible through AWS Data Exchange – in which expertise, tools, opportunity, and inspiration all came together to develop a way to monitor and measure soil subsidence resulting from underground mining activities.
- Measure ground subsidence related to mining.
- Identify potential risks of mine collapse.
- Prevent unnecessary damage to residential and commercial property.
- Improve safety of people in proximity to decommissioned mines.
- Integration of CATALYST displacement data into The Underground Mining Damage Ground Displacement Project (UMD) via AWS Data Exchange.
- Historical and continued monitoring mining sites.
- Analysis ready data to measure the impact of ground displacement.
- Displacement data easily extracted, transformed, and loaded into owned systems.
- Faster and more efficient queries on the data.
- Broader environmental insights suitable for corporate, commercial, and public interest.
“The Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) data that CATALYST had wasn’t right for SCREC,”
“But we realized it could be applied to another problem—measuring ground subsidence related to mining.”
