The name or concept ”Digital Mapping” comes from analyzing and presenting drill monitoring data. Drill monitoring can also be called MWD (Measurement While Drilling). Drill monitoring or MWD is different names for registration of drill parameters during rock drilling
ROCKMA is a company that develops methods for analyzing these parameters and also develops software for graphical presentation of the rock mass. The graphical presentation is generated automatically and it is very user friendly. All handling is digital. This is why the method is called ”Digital Mapping”.
ROCKMA can be used for all drilling methods, all brands and models. Many drill rigs can be delivered with MWD-systems (drill monitoring systems) often as an option. This is not necessary. ROCKMA has possibility to sell and mount complete logging system on all types of drill rigs. ROCKMA’s hardware (monitoring system) is optimized for the analysis and built on that basis.
The analysis of drill monitoring data has been developed to generate very detail rock mass information. Whole handling in modern systems is easy, all analysis is automatically generated and gives foundation for a quick decision.
To take care of and use information when drilling is performed can give huge economical and safety benefits. In some application just one decision based on this information can give a payback for the whole system cost.
