Develop rapport with the community.

A license to operate means more than a permit to excavate. You need to reach out to the local community and build understanding and engagement. Esri helps you work together to build a vision for the future. Use intelligent maps and analysis to develop sustainable community-sensitivity plans for mines.

"GIS technology allows mining companies to visually demonstrate the benefits their operations are having amongst the community by providing evidence of employment increases or infrastructure development."

Chris Brown, Senior GIS Analyst, CITIC Pacific Mining
