about contest of student works with the use of geoinformation system K-MINE «STUD GIS: 2014-2015»

If you are a student and you prepare yourself to successful career in geology, mining, information technologies, then the Organizers invite you to take part in the contest of student works “STUD GIS: 2014-2015”!

Contest aim is to attract creative youth to use modern geoinformation systems (GIS) and stimulate students who realized professionally interesting GIS-projects.


Students, postgraduate students of geological, geodetic, ecological, mining and IT-specialties are invited. Works solving applied problems by means of geoinformation system (GIS) K-MINE are accepted for the contest.


  1. Deposit development and mineral excavation by open-cast and underground mining (for example in field of complex use of GIS in mining production management).
  2. Mining and underground construction (for example, in field of SAPR at mines and underground constructions design).
  3. Surveying (for example, in field of innovations of surveying services work automation at the enterprise).
  4. Mining safety (for example, in field of mining labor safety).
  5. Geology and hydrogeology (for example, in field of geological prospecting and mineral deposit modeling using GIS).
  6. Economic geology (for example, in field of solving tasks of mineral deposit geological-and-economic estimation in GIS).
  7. Ecology and environment protection (for example, in field of ecological safety, environmental control, audit, applied ecology and balanced nature use).
  8. Geoinformation systems and technologies (for example, in field of transport logistics, optimization tasks at final and temporary excavation outlines definition).
  9. Geodesy and cartography (for example, in field of electronic maps creation as GIS basis).
