Webinar on 3D subsurface mapping breaks attendance records
Geosoft recently partnered with MundoGEO, a leader in event organization and publication of magazines and portals for the geotechnology sector in Latin America, to sponsor an online seminar on the topic of ‘Adding 3D subsurface data in ArcGIS’. The total number of participants exceeded 1,200, breaking previous attendance records for MundoGEO Online Seminars.
Interest in the topic, and event promotion through social networking were key to the seminar’s success, reported Eduardo Freitas, MundoGEO seminar mediator.
"The use of 3D data analysis is on the rise, generating a great deal of interest in this webinar,” said Freitas. “To publicize the webinar, we took advantage of the MundoGEO portal, social networks and discussion lists. Social networks were also used during the webinar, with highlights of the event.”
The online seminar, conducted in Portuguese, demonstrated the use of Geosoft Target for ArcGIS as a solution for creating surface and subsurface maps, importing, managing and visualizing geology and drillhole data, from 2D sections to 3D maps and interpretations. The audience included geoscience professionals and users of Esri’s ArcGIS software within Latin America’s Engineering, Geotechnical, Environmental, Mining and Oil Exploration industries, Government and Education sectors.
“The high level of interest confirmed the importance, and market demand for, our 3D data visualization and integration tools,” said Ana Cristina Chaves, Managing Director of Geosoft LatinoAmerica. “We were very impressed with the professionalism and range of services provided by the MundoGeo team. The results speak for themselves. This was the largest audience we’ve ever reached through our online events.”
Speakers at the online event included Telma Aisengart, an exploration data management solutions consultant and technical manager at Geosoft LatinoAmerica with more than 25 years of experience as a geophysicist; Israel Almeida, geophysicist and technical analyst at Geosoft LatinoAmerica; and Bartira Carvalho, accounts executive at Geosoft LatinoAmerica, responsible for providing support to the Mining and Oil & Gas markets across all solutions – from mapping and analysis to exploration data management.
