Geographic Spatial Assoc. of Faults Software


The Distance Distribution software  targets spatial associations between mineral occurrences and geologic features.  This makes the software useful for suggesting favorable and inclusive domains for future exploration.


Dr. Milt Wiltse and his colleagues at the University of Alaska Fairbanks' Geographic Information of Alaska have developed software tools for mineral exploration efforts. 

The software analyzes existing maps of known mineral occurrence locations and geologic features to find areas that are favorable for mineral exploration.


The software is available under license, and the inventor is interested in cooperative research agreements to advance the development of the mineral exploration software.
