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.

  • Survey Decimation- Are you surveys really slow to load? Are you having difficulty rotating your 3D view? The problem might be the level of detail in your survey files. If the level of detail of survey files is unnecessarily high, it will slow down the 3D view for no reason. This is often the case with stope […]
  • Survey Input Configuration- Are you unable to see your surveys, but can’t work out why? Are some of your surveys located a long way away from the rest of your mine when they shouldn’t be? This could be due to the input configuration of your survey files. The order of the co-ordinate components (Easting, Northing, RL) are sometimes […]
  • Hazard Assessment App – Excavation View- The grid-based hazard calculations in the Hazard Assessment app were discussed in a previous post. The Iso View describes the hazard at all locations within the mine but when you are considering the seismic risk for a particular work area, large events and strong ground motions may come from multiple sources. The Excavation View estimates […]
