Data in the palm of your hand – Mobile, digital and 3D geology
Clive Mitchell of British Geological Survey
Geology has come a long way since the advent of the first national-scale geological map produced by pioneering British geologist William Smith in 1815. The traditional image of 19th and 20th Century geologists is with hammer in hand traversing geological boundaries, annotating paper maps and recording observations in a trusty field notebook. The 21st Century counterpart carries a web-enabled ruggedised tablet computer with line work and observations entered directly onto a GPS-located digital map capable of incorporating detailed metadata, photographs and other geological information.
The capture, management and delivery of data is at the heart of the modern British Geological Survey (BGS). Data captured by geologists during survey programmes is used to continually update the understanding of the geology of the UK. BGS maps are wholly digital with a seamless geological map of the UK that is scalable from the national 1:1 million scale to the local 1:10,000 scale.
The revolution in spatial data over the last 20 years has enabled a move from 2-dimensional flat plan view geological maps to the 3-dimensional geological models of the subsurface. Visualisation technology enables geologists to carry out virtual field excursions before leaving the office. In addition, the policy of Open Data has seen a surge in freely available geological information largely accessed through web map viewers and data portals. More recently mobile applications such as iGeology in the UK and mGeology in the United Arab Emirates enable access to geological information via smart phones and tablets.
This presentation will look at how the digital revolution has transformed the delivery of geological data to the world. It will cover the advances made by the British Geological Survey in delivering geological maps to your smart phone, 3D subsurface modelling and 3D visualisation of data in a ‘virtual field laboratory’.
Dr Carolyn Yeoman of OCAID Wellbeing Ltd
Wellbeing is an overused term which means all things to all people and it tends to be ill-defined and misunderstood. It’s often the ‘soft and fluffy’ side of wellbeing which is the focus of interventions and whilst such interventions are beneficial to individuals, they’re unlikely to result in long-term sustainable organisational effects. Organisations need to address wellbeing in the same way as they address safety, by identifying and eliminating the primary risks to wellbeing. We also need to start thinking about wellbeing in a different way and recognise the crucial role wellbeing has as a business improvement tool.
This presentation focuses on Creating Wellbeing ™ by discussing:
- What wellbeing is and its relationship to safety, leadership and engagement
- Why organisations should focus on Creating wellbeing ™ rather than managing stress and psychosocial risk!
- The Yeoman Bizzell Wellbeing Culture Development Model
- How to develop wellbeing cultures
- Assessing wellbeing and engagement
- Wellbeing Interventions
Carolyn is Operations Director of OCAID Wellbeing. She is an organisational psychologist with significant experience in the Health, Safety and Wellbeing field.

Carolyn has a proven international track record in numerous industry sectors including construction, oil and gas, food, utilities, packaging and retail.
Carolyn has co-authored a book about Employee Assistance Programmes with Professor Sir Cary Cooper and is an experienced conference speaker with a number of papers and publications to her name. Carolyn is highly skilled and practised in benchmarking and designing organisational Wellbeing and Safety Culture interventions that enhance employee engagement and wellbeing, resulting in resilient people in resilient organisations.
Her aim is always to help to create sustainable change within organisations, enabling them to continuously improve their Health, Safety and Wellbeing culture.

through Great Leadership
Julian Smallshaw of the Institute of Quarrying
The UK quarrying industry is ahead of the game in many areas but over the years one segment of training has been neglected. We haven’t invested the necessary time and resources in developing future leaders. Not just at the top of the company but also in the all-important area of supervision. The realisation has now dawned and some companies have realised the worth in this area of study. In order to drive a business forward you need good leadership at all levels.
Empower people and reap the rewards.
Julian has been undertaking the development and promotion of world-class, tailored education and training programmes with the Institute of Quarrying since 2008, creating bespoke blended training packages for the extractives industry. Carrying with him a wealth of knowledge from his extensive career in operational quarry management and extractives operations, from hard rock to sand and gravel.
