China Builds World’s First Central Asia Geology and Mineral Resources Big-data System

Jun 13, 2018     Email"> PrintText Size

Collecting and integrating multivariate data of mineral resources in China and seven Central Asian countries, a world’s first and only geology and mineral resources big data system was completed in Xinjiang Institute of Ecology and Geography (XIEG) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences recently.

The system integrates data of geology, mineral resources, geochemistry, geophysics, remote sensing, aeromagnetic, and airborne gravity, in China, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Russia and Mongolia.

The Big data system is the fruit of a 20-year-effort supported by the Xinjiang Mineral Resources Research Center of XIEG, starting from the year of 1999.

With about 14TB data, including 16,834 mineral resource maps and large stock of related data, the system will provide key support to mineral resources exploration along the Belt and Road.

A series of technology system were developed on the basis of this big-data base. The Xinjiang Mineral Resources Research Center has developed six software systems along with the building of the geology big-data system, including the Central Asia geology big-data base management and sharing platform, the natural resources network information system, and the remote sensing weak information identification.
