GEOVIA provides 3DEXPERIENCE Universes to Model and Simulate our planet from the vast expanse of the geosphere to the smallest details of urban settlements.

GEOVIA supports the sustainable capture, use and re-use of natural resources across the planet. From mining to urbanization, GEOVIA delivers innovations to improve life on earth.


Cities provides a virtual 3D environment to interactively explore the virtual twin of the city.

An intelligent digital model based on geometric and topographical, demographic, mobility and other elements addresses the complexity of the cities, enabling the stakeholders to work in a systemic approach to collaborate around the common referential that allows them to simulate the evolutions of the city.

The stakeholders are able simulate, plan and manage the city in a transversal and collaborative way to remotely share data and better observe urban phenomena.

Key benefits:

  • Easily build and maintain a virtual twin of the city
  • Navigate in a city immersive environment
  • Facilitate data sharing and collaboration to break the organizational silos
  • Analyze georeferenced information through innovative data visualizations
  • Facilitate city orchestration and planning through a collaborative environment


Maximize resource potential with strategic planning and design

Before investing in a new mine, or when re-evaluating mine plans in an active operation, you need to be sure the deposit, design and schedule can deliver the profits required to justify the required capital investment. With GEOVIA, you have the capabilities to maximize profitability and gain greater confidence in the decisions you make.

With GEOVIA, you can analyze the economic viability of a mineral deposit, and then align designs and schedules to company goals.

You also have the ability to optimize return on investment (ROI) by exploring different design options. Risks can be reduced by considering different mine design and operating scenarios by examining the sensitivities to changes in commodity prices, demand, and operating costs.

Once you have your strategic mine plan, you use it to guide the development of practical-to-mine production schedule which will also deliver the best possible ROI.

Key benefits:

  • Determine strategies for improved cash flow and earlier capital payback.
  • Reduce risk for large capital projects by evaluating multiple scenarios.
  • Complete integration from Pre-Feasibility to Production Planning.
  • Detect Constraints and Sensitivities under changing conditions.
  • Develop robust mine plans with higher NPV in less time.
  • Optimize all aspects from the Pit to the Plant.


Discover and model the surface and sub-surface geological environment

GEOVIA provides you with the geology modeling capabilities needed to quantity and then plan the extraction of mineral deposits. Our applications integrate: ore body or seam modeling, geostatistical analysis, resource modeling, estimation and block model generation, survey and other critical functions.

With GEOVIA, mine site productivity can be increased through the automation of workflows for processes such as grade control, eliminating repetitive tasks, helps to reduce errors, and is underpinned by visual validation of designs.

Using GEOVIA, data can be centralized and secured, making it accessible whenever it is required. In addition to enabling effective collaboration, you benefit from robust audit trails, giving you increased confidence in creating reports for JORC, Valmin, SAMREC, and NI 43-101 and other requirements.

Key benefits:

  • Tools that help you achieve better ore body or seam modeling accuracy.
  • Increased confidence in resource estimation and reserves calculations.
  • Improved mine site and user productivity.
  • Common interface promotes faster user adoption.


Harness the natural environment through production management and continuous optimization

GEOVIA Resources Management provides solutions to manage and optimize the planning and operations of an urban or natural resource, from the smallest details of urban environments to the vast expanse of a remote mine site.

Resources Management provide solutions to bridge the planning, scheduling and operations functions, enabling cross-functional collaboration and continuous improvement: a Plan, Do, Check, Act framework underpinned by centralized data and a collaborative platform.

Key benefits:

  • Leverage the tools to build, manage, share and explore the virtual twin of an urban environment, for improved planning, communications and decision making.
  • Produce tactical plans in mining that are compliant with strategic objectives through an integrated approach from design to scheduling and onwards through production.

GEOVIA MineSched

MineSched is employed by surface and underground mining operations of all types and sizes to produce long-term and short-term schedules, that will meet all of a mine’s targets. MineSched can schedules from pre-created block, grid, and polygon models that originate from many different mines planning systems, including GEOVIA Surpac and GEOVIA Minex. Read more


InSite provides clean, auditable production information from both the mine and the plant. This information is used to provide confidence in the quality and quantity of mined stocks. All activities are traceable and allow mining staff to accurately understand what has occurred in the mine over any time period. All planned activities can be stored and compared against the actual production data, allowing for prompt reconciliation. Variances can be analyzed and reconciliation allows for discrepancies to be managed. Continuous process improvement is possible with visibility into where variances of all size (positive and negative) occur. Read more

For 3DEXPERIENCE Mine, GEOVIA POWER’BY allows geoscientists and engineers to access and leverage the full collaborative capabilities of the platform including data lifecycle management, specialized mining workflows and approvals.

Mining is not a single process but a sequence of processes managed across the supply chain, from geology studies to commodity shipment. There are ways to improve the efficiency of mining production by enhancing the interaction of its different processes by employing a Business Platform that bridges the gap between Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technologies, and draws upon the Industrial Internet . By doing so, we posit that greater efficiency can be achieved, along with waste and cost reduction. Ultimately, the merging of these worlds, through such a platform, will provide management with higher confidence in operational performance as critical decisions are made using real-time data.

• Information Technology is the application of computers to store, retrieve, transmit and manipulate data.

• Operational Technology is hardware and software that detects or causes a change through the direct monitoring and/or control of physical devices, processes and events in the enterprise.

• Industrial Internet of Things Technologies (IIoT) is automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies. It includes cyber-physical systems, the Internet of Things and cloud computing

• The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical devices, vehicles, buildings and other items—embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators and network connectivity— that enable these objects to collect and exchange data.
