New spatial viewer to replace MinesOnlineMaps
The Georesources division of the Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy has released the initial version of GeoResGlobe.
GeoResGlobe provides a new online, interactive experience to view Queensland’s mining and exploration data to assist in the administration of permits and assessment of mineral potential in Queensland.
About the initial release
This initial release of GeoResGlobe is the department’s first step in the full replacement of MinesOnlineMaps. This spatial viewer will run on all current browsers, including PC and tablet devices.
The ability to easily save and share maps, take maps offline (which is useful for data gathering in areas when network connectivity is unavailable), and access over 80 years of historical imagery are huge improvements to the current MineOnlineMaps.
The new GeoResGlobe application has the familiar look and feel of the Queensland Globe, enhanced by new workflows, functionality and results options. The project has included user interface designers to support a consistent and optimal user experience.
There are a number of videos and help pages on the site which we encourage you to view.
Give GeoResGlobe a go, and start exploring Queensland’s rich mineral and energy resources data.
The scheduled release of stage 2 in October will provide an essential tool for the mining and exploration industry well into the future.
The final stage of the project will be to decommission MinesOnlineMaps shortly after the October release of GeoResGlobe.
