Enhancing the Virtual Planet roles, delivering solutions spanning Geosciences, Earth Engineering to the Urban Environment

In 3DEXPERIENCE R2023x, GEOVIA is enhancing the VIRTUAL PLANET roles delivering solutions spanning Geosciences, Earth Engineering to the Urban Environment.

3DEXPERIENCE R2023x on premise and on the cloud opens the power of the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform to GEOVIA Surpac users. Surpac users can now save their data in the platform directly from their environment, thereby benefiting from all the collaboration and IP lifecycle management of the platform with Collaborative Designer for Surpac. Users are seamlessly connected from their Surpac environment with all stakeholders in a project ecosystem, ensuring that everyone is working on the right data at the same time. A model-based collaboration approach exposes GEOVIA Surpac data to all enterprise users and establishes end-to-end digital continuity.

3DEXPERIENCE R2023x continues to enhance the sub-surface geoscience modeling capabilities with the Geology Modeler role adding fault modeling and advanced control features (e.g. new parameters for automated modeling), allowing geologists to better model complex geological environments. As geoscientists prepare and clean geoscience data, their knowledge can now be preserved and institutionalized in a rules-based data classification.

The role is now also released on premise for those that experience remote connectivity challenges or sovereign data protection policies.

The Pit Optimizer role for mine planners is enhance with better guidance and control in the optimization of the ‘life of mine phasing’ (i.e. the long term footprint of the surface mine). Sustainability assessment has also been advanced. Now, mine planners can optimize for sustainable mining practices at the feasibility stage of a surface mining by defining geospatially identified areas of sensitivity such as areas of ecological interest, contaminated land or existing infrastructure. The Surface Mine Designer role is expanded to cover safe and practical waste and stockpile storage areas including practical ramp access design and material reporting.

Improvements to Urban Environment solutions range from data preparation to collaborative urban content review. The newly introduced City Data Engineer role, and the City Referential Manager, now include preparation capabilities for GIS (Geographical Information System) data, improving geospatial data workflows and reducing reliance on 3rd-party tools.  The City Discover application has a new user experience for better content organization, data insights and visualization. Urban planners and civil design engineers can now seamlessly iterate between detailed design and design review in the broader city context. Finally new collaborative tools available to the City Viewer Role enables users to interact with other city users.
