Integrated GIS solution for surface and drillhole mapping improves exploration productivity

Geosoft, a provider of geospatial software for earth science industries, announced the launch of TargetT for ArcGIS, a surface and drillhole mapping extension to ESRI’s ArcGIS software. Target for ArcGIS is planned for commercial release in the third quarter of 2003. Target for ArcGIS simplifies the compilation, mapping and analysis of geospatial data within the GIS environment. Built on the same technology as Geosoft’s industry-leading DPA (Data Processing and Analysis) software, Oasis montajT, Target adds powerful spatial data processing capabilities to ArcGIS. Target will bring advanced gridding, contouring, and drillhole mapping tools to the ArcGIS environment, providing essential, integrated functionality that enables more productive use of geospatial data for timely exploration decision-making.

Using Target, geoscientists working within ArcGIS can:

  • Create and display gridded data and contoured maps
  • Easily generate drillhole sections and plans
  • Import, display, and analyze drillhole and surface maps, enabling the integration of surface and sub-surface data in final interpretations and maps

    Available worldwide, Target for ArcGIS supports a range of industry applications and users, including geologists, exploration managers and environmental scientists. Founded in 1986, Geosoft is a provider of geospatial software for earth science industries. Geosoft software enables productive use of spatial data for essential decision-making in exploration, UXO detection and environmental investigations. The company has offices in Africa, Australia, Europe, Latin America and North America.
