Toronto, Ontario - Geosoft announced the availability of its 2010 Software
Release for geoscientists and exploration professionals. The release includes a
number of important advancements that improve access to data and information,
make mapping and reporting tasks more efficient, and expand 3D subsurface
to our customers, and have enhanced software usability to support greater
productivity," says Louis Racic, Geosoft Product Director. "We’ve also
incorporated new capabilities to streamline common tasks such as finding data,
making maps and generating reports, and have expanded our capabilities for
creating integrated interpretations in 3D.”
capabilities, in the 2010 release, support generalists and specialists working
across all disciplines – geology, geophysics and geochemistry.
· Statistical and
reporting capabilities have been improved within Geosoft’s exploration geology
workflow, Target and Target for ArcGIS. New capabilities make it easy to
highlight, report and assess significant intersections in drilling projects.
have been made to several geophysical extensions. These include the addition of
section support for crooked sections within montaj Geophysics; a new Gridfill
Multistep algorithm option within MAGMAP; and the availability of Draped surface
calculations within the GMSYS 3D gravity modelling extension.
enhancements have been added to the Geochemistry for ArcGIS extension. These
include: new leveling capabilities, 3D topography draping, coloured histogram,
multi-histogram and probability plots. The montaj geochemistry workflow now
includes log options for Boxplots, a new duplicate sample ID scheme and multiple
channel gridding to make grids of all your geochemical assay data.
dynamic linking capabilities include new shadow cursor support for all data
views within a map. A map with a section view and surface view will now be
linked with a shadow cursor. This linking applies to scatter plots and
tri-plots, plan maps, section maps and 3D.
rendering of the subsurface has become essential for presentation and
collaboration,” said Racic. "We continue to expand 3D gridding options, within
our core platform, and we have added utilities to make working with voxels
easier. A great deal of exploration work is still completed in 2D plans and
sections, and we now support the ability to work with crooked geophysical
sections to help bridge this gap, enabling more accurate representations of the
data in 2D and 3D. ”
Access and Data Support
2010 release, Geosoft has also expanded data access capabilities to address the
challenges inherent in organizing, finding and accessing the increasing volumes
of data used for earth exploration projects. This includes providing tools to
easily find data, and expanding data format support to promote efficient
exploration and integration of diverse data types.
introduced Seeker, a new tool designed to help explorers find and start using
data quicker. Seeker provides a single interface for handling the entire data
access workflow – from structured metadata querying to the viewing of results
and from data extraction to the explorer’s desktop application.
has been added for ODBC, JPEG 2000 and GOCAD voxet data files. ODBC support now
includes a new filtering capability, for accessing drill hole databases or
surface data without the requirement for SQL query
