WHAT IS IT?
Tome is a cooperative exploration map, enhancing the exploration of mineral and natural resources, leveraging geospatial technology. 'Tome' democratizes the exploration process, enabling entities and individual explorers to join forces (forming 'Guilds') to quickly delve into groundbreaking exploration tools, empowering discovery, analysis, asses and knowledge-sharing.
WHAT DOES IT DO?
'Tome' is a Mineral Exploration Platform, empowering global groups to explore & discover new deposits and easily assess their exploitation potential.
HOW DOES YOUR SMART M.APP SOLVE WORLD PROBLEMS?
Will our planet have enough natural resources to support the gargantuan growth of mankind's population?

World population is growing faster than at any time in history, estimated to reach 25b by 2050.
The direct result of this growth and the change in global standard of living, is a rapid consumption of minerals, which is currently growing faster than population curve itself.

Minerals are becoming more precious and difficult to find. At this point, the quantity and quality of geologic information relevant to mineral exploration vary greatly across the globe. As a result, it is difficult to prioritize areas for exploration, especially in comparison to competing uses for land

A mineral supply crisis (on global level) can only be evaded by increase in mineral exploration, enhanced with better geological information and land access.

•Enhance effective discovery of mineral deposits by 15% by providing a macro view of existing sites, patterns on continental-scale and multi-layered view of maps

•Simplify the assessment of a given area's exploitation-potential, by providing multi facet analytics and cross-referenced information

•Democratize the mineral exploration enterprise, enabling smaller parties to access mineral extraction sites (hence generating market fluxes as a side-effect)

•Data-sharing and reduced costs, resulting in decreased wastage of prime resources (energy, water, environment) in futile explorations
