Geoscientists are accomplished in the world of gathering Big Data. Drillholes pierce targets and every metre of the core is described. Rock, soil, vegetation, water and gasses are collected and documented. Laboratories are overloaded with samples and analyses. Both above and below ground is traversed, creating maps of identified features. Where geology cannot be seen, geophysical data illuminates the bedrock and underlying structure. Always keeping true north in mind, location coordinates tell geoscientists where they are, and where they should be going.
Geoscientists are prolific report writers. Guided by knowledge and wisdom, data are transformed into comprehensive reports highlighting discoveries or documenting best efforts if a search was less fruitful. Each report is a contribution to a collective body of knowledge, leaving important footsteps for future explorers.
Geoscientists never throw anything away. Data collection and report generation takes a huge effort and is expensive. Regrettably, paper copies of data and reports may end up in an unmarked filing cabinet down the hall. Maps may be rolled and discarded in the nearest corner. Data may exist as PDF files in unsecured folders on a colleague’s desktop. Documents could end up in a warehouse, hundreds of kilometres from your office. In too many scenarios, and in too many ways, the future value of archival data and reports can be lost.
That is where Purple Rock Inc. comes in.
