What is mXrap?

mXrap is a geotechnical data analysis and monitoring platform within which data analysis tools have been developed. mXrap (and its predecessor, MSRAP) was developed under the ACG’s Mine Seismicity and Rockburst Risk Management project. As part of this project the software served the purpose of a technology transfer tool to bring the project outcomes to the sponsor sites. The software design and -capabilities, however, created the opportunity to extend its use outside the field of mining induced seismicity from which it originated. Since February 2015, the development of mXrap is separated from the ACG’s research project and the further development is sponsored by the mXrap Consortium. The software mXrap provides the development environment (platform) within which Apps dedicated at specific tasks are developed. The ACG team has, under the Mine Seismicity and Rockburst Risk Management project, developed several tools for the monitoring, analysis and management of mining induced seismicity. Apps are now also developed for wider application and users may build and share their own Apps.
