HypeLAP – Hyperspectral Lapland
Hyperspectral Lapland (HypeLAP), a two-year project, was launched in June 2020. The project is financed through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) by a decision of Business Finland. A total of ten companies, from small and medium size enterprises to large international mining organisations, have agreed to support the project by participating in steering group work.
The Hyperspectral Lapland project aims to provide practical solutions for mineral exploration by taking full advantage of the state-of-art hyperspectral imaging and handheld instrumentation. The project aims to benefit especially those mining and exploration companies that are targeting their activities to Northern Finland. Also the opportunity to build a new consultancy service on hyperspectral imaging will be reviewed.
The project will be carried out by Geological Survey of Finland. The results of the project will be made publicly available to the mineral exploration industry and geoscientists.
