Data Management

The management of geological data is key to a project’s success; discrepancies in the data will cause concerns over your resource, particularly resource classification. H&SC can help provide our clients with a customised database to capture, store and validate data. Our consultants work closely with our clients to provide a customised database to fulfil their requirements either onsite or within the office allowing access to the data in real time and informing the decision making process.

H&SC offer ongoing support and supervision for our client’s databases to give an adaptable system that can grow as your business needs expand.

H&SC is able to set up geological databases for clients using one or more of the following software packages; SQL Server (v2005/v2008/v2012/v2018), MS Access (2003, 2007, 2010, 365), Datamine, Micromine, Techbase, MapInfo or Surpac. 

Additionally H&SC can offer expert advice in the design and implementation of quality control programs to ensure data is accurate and complies with international best practice. We have developed a suite of statistical tools to analyse this type of data and have a wealth of experience in QAQC analysis.
