Geochemical Analysis
for Esri ArcGIS

Geochemistry for ArcGIS enables explorers to analyse geochemical data within their Esri ArcGIS environment. Using Geochemistry for ArcGIS, geoscientists can effectively examine multivariate relationships, uncover underlying structures and present results with visually impactful maps.

Exploratory Geochemical Data Analysis

Geosoft Geochemistry for ArcGIS builds on the success of our subsurface geology extension, Target for ArcGIS, and provides you with the ability to organise, ensure quality control, visualise, and analyse geochemical data within the Esri ArcGIS environment.

Using Geochemistry for ArcGIS, you can:

  • Simplify your geochemistry quality control process and maintain data in an Esri file geodatabase using a data model optimised for geochemical data.
  • Select and subset data interactively from maps based on lithology and regions to enhance data display.
  • Create advanced geochemical maps within the Esri ArcGIS Desktop environment.
  • Analyse multi-element geochemistry using interactive multiple histogram plots, Pearson’s correlation reports, scatter plots, probability plots, ternary plots and box plots, to identify outliers and define populations.
  • Import data from several different sources and file types.

A new digitization workflow for creating geological interpretations

A new streamlined workflow makes it easy to digitize geological interpretations on section maps using the native ArcGIS editing tools. You can save all your interpretations to a single Interpretations Geodatabase, making it easier to manage and to share geological models with colleagues.

Each Geodatabase can contain several sets of interpretations, stored as geological feature classes. Polygon features can be used to represent individual rock units, alteration or mineralization zones, while polyline features can be used to draw faults or contact surfaces.

Quality Control click to enlarge Use the quality control and quality assurance functionality to effectively validate and analyse your standards and duplicates, to ensure that all results fall within acceptable limits.
Querying and Selecting click to enlarge Split, subset and refine data for statistical analysis based on regional geological differences, analytical techniques or sampling types.
Surface Mapping click to enlarge Use design wizards and function rich gridding routines to simplify the creation of grids and contour maps from stream, soil, rock and geophysical data.
Statistical Data Analysis click to enlarge Process any type of surface or subsurface geochemical data in ArcGIS. Tools allow you to create data selections and to include or exclude selected points from the data.
Statistical Reporting click to enlarge Сalculate basic and advanced statistical parameters for a single assay element, including geometric mean, variance and other methods.
Drillhole Data Integration click to enlarge Import your geochemical drilling data from your drillhole projects directly from Geosoft Target for ArcGIS.
