How to transfer your data to View in one minute:

WOLF PASS – View case study

Rising high above the jungles of Colombia, Wolf Pass is home to several precious metals, including gold and copper. A global mining company, Mine Corp., holds the rights to these minerals. But does the deposit have enough economic potential to develop a mining project?

Three specialists, scattered around the world, need to analyze the data together. Their company, Mine Corp., has completed an exploration drilling program at Wolf Pass and they need to decide if they will move forward with the project.

Wolf Pass decision makers:

John Ashworth, CEO, Mine Corp., has been traveling around the world meeting with Mine Corp.’s various stakeholders. Today he’s in London, but he’s found some time in his busy schedule to meet with his team via View.

Chelsea Browne, VP Exploration, is five time zones away at their corporate headquarters in Toronto, Canada. She handpicked the geology team for the project, and is eager to see what insights their drill program has uncovered.

Santiago Alvarez, Lead Geologist, has been overseeing the exploration drilling program in Wolf Pass. After modelling the results in Leapfrog Geo, he's uploaded the key geological structures to View. He's ready to share the findings with the rest of the team.

Getting started

Intuitive controls mean anyone can pick up and use View. John, Mine Corp.'s CEO, uses his My Leapfrog ID to sign in and see the Wolf Pass View (uploaded projects are called "Views"). He's able to easily manipulate the 3D model using mouse gestures and keyboard shortcuts, even without any previous experience using View.

View navigation video

Use intuitive mouse gestures to help you rotate, pan and zoom within the scene.

Keyboard shortcuts video

View provides keyboard shortcuts that make navigating the application fast and easy.


Elements Panel

The elements panel puts your data into context. Despite the complexity of the data, the Wolf Pass team is able to use the intuitive elements panel and property options to uncover clear insights from the model.

Element visibility, opacity and wireframe video

Altering an element's visibility and opacity helps show where key elements relate to one another. Turn on the wireframe to further distinguish an element.

Colour bar and data settings video

Adjusting the colour bar allows you to clearly visualise subtle changes and patterns in the data. This is especially useful for layers with gradient values, like topographical surfaces and resource block models.

Customise your data beyond the colour bar by clipping outliers and reversing the colour map.

Textures video

Use image projections to visualise your surface in a different way.



The toolbox helps you uncover insights around your data. The Wolf Pass team needs to dig a little deeper to answer their questions about the project. What they want to know: should they conduct another drilling program at Wolf Pass?

Slice and slice planes video

Use the freehand slice tool to cut your data and view layers from all angles. This perspective helps you discover intersections, gaps, and geological features.

For a precise slice aligned to the grid, use the X, Y or Z-axis slice tool. You can move the slice plane along the chosen axis to find an area of interest.

Measure video

Use the ruler tool to take precise measurements of your 3D model features.



Use slides to tell a story with your data. Slides are used to save your key perspectives - so you can return to them with one click.

Santiago has saved his key findings as slides, and shows John and Chelsea what he's discovered. Getting the full view, they believe the project has potential and that more drilling should be completed. Working together, the team saves a few more slides to create a persuasive presentation for investors.

Slides and annotations video

Create slides to help consolidate your findings in one place - and return to those key perspectives again with one click. Slides are dynamic views and still allow you to pivot and rotate your model.

You can now annotate slides you’ve created with comments or drawings. This is useful when you want to highlight key features to others, or ask your collaborators questions.

Slide panel video

As you create new slides they are combined into a slide deck for you. This helps you present your findings, assumptions and outcomes to stakeholders. You'll be able to edit, duplicate or delete these slides as needed.



See all your findings in one place. In a quick glance, you can see which Views (projects) you own, who the collaborators are and which Views were shared with you.

Project details

See details for each project including descriptions, privacy settings, project collaborators and created on dates.

Sort dashboard

Organize your dashboard in a way that works best for you.

Account settings

You can find your profile settings here, including first name / last name, email and display name. If you need to update these settings, you can visit My Leapfrog.



Two-way dialogue has never been easier. Share your existing work-in-progress or final presentations with internal and external stakeholders.

Add collaborators and permissions video

Determine who you would like to share your work with from the dashboard or within your view. You'll be able to select whether your collaborators have viewing or editing access. Click here for a full list of permissions.

Give collaborators viewing permissions. This allows the user to see your work but not make changes.

Assign collaborators editing permissions. This allows them to edit, add and delete slides, and edit project titles and descriptions.

Remove collaborators video

Modify permissions or remove collaborators in the sharing window if needed.
