The Field Augmented Reality in Mineral Exploration and Mining (FARMIN) project addresses the lack of a link to and between the visualization of data and models while conducting geological field work, which acts as an essential component within mining business with common devides in understanding between geologists and engineers. To handle this, intuitive and immersive visualization is required for efficient interpretation and communication of models, in order to prevent the occurance of inaccuracies  from temporal and spatial gaps between field data acquisition and data processing and modelling.


FARMIN aims to improve the exploration success rates which are below 1% within the industry, reduce costs and lead times for the exploration process, and improve cross functional communication through the development and utilization of augmented reality solutions with aggregated geological data.
