Bentley Systems Announces Seequent’s Acquisition of Imago

Bentley Systems, Incorporated announced that its Seequent business unit has acquired Imago Inc, a developer of cloud-based software for the capture and management of geoscientific imagery. The acquisition will expand Seequents technology solutions portfolio while boosting cloud capabilities to help geoscientists and engineers solve earth, environment, and energy challenges.

Imagos cloud-based platform enables the capture, cataloguing, and review of drilling core and chip images from any source, to support every aspect of the geological process from exploration to grade control. Continued development of Imagos machine learning will lead to a step function in the interpretation of geological data.

Imago assists companies to deploy processes that improve core image capture.

Mining companies around the world apply Imagos solution in conjunction with geology data management and modeling tools to enable teams to make more confident, profitable decisions using instantly available, high-quality images. Seequent already integrates its Leapfrog, Oasis montaj, Target, and Minalytix MX Deposit with Imagos solution, making it easy for geologists, engineers, and other stakeholders to extract knowledge and learn from geoscientific imagery. The goal is to unlock significant potential for mining and other industries, transforming image data into meaningful insights for geological activities.

Imago establishes a consistent process for capturing high-quality images, which integrate with existing workflows and allow the application of machine learning. Imago instantly displays machine learning insights together with images during interpretation and modeling. Imagos on-screen masking and classification tools export data to train models. The Imago Cloud library of geology images provides rich information that supports user interpretation and modeling work.

Graham Grant, chief executive officer of Seequent, said, Its an exciting step to welcome the Imago team on board to help advance Seequents progression into the cloud. Were continually exploring ways to provide new technologies and solutions to solve workflow challenges, improve operational efficiency, and deliver greater value for our users who are working to solve some of the worlds major civil, environmental, and energy challenges. This acquisition demonstrates Seequents continued growth and our commitment to make a positive contribution to the industries we serve globally.

Imagos co-founder Federico Arboleda said, As a small team in Phoenix and Perth, were excited to join forces with Seequent, as this will now allow us to substantially scale Imagos solutions in mining and other markets. We founded Imago to help mining companies manage the high volume and size of geological images and unlock the great value in this geoscience imagery. Image data is an increasingly important source of data across the geosciencesand can come from potentially any source, including core photos, hyperspectral, aerial photos, drones, and handheld devices. It will become even more important to transform image data into knowledge as automation needs increase.

The geologist clicks the drill hole trace to display the corresponding core photos in Imago, as a drill hole, at the correct path. The geologist is able to continuously validate the logs and assays using the original images of the rock material.
