New in DAP: Web-based Dap Administrator and Index Map

What's New

DAP Server 12.2

DAP 12.2 includes support for a number of new dataset types found in Geosoft software applications, including VOXI, 3D PDF (with extents), 3DV, geostrings, geosurfaces, drillhole projects, ArcGIS v10.1 LYR files, and GM-SYS 3D datasets. DAP security levels have been streamlined to three levels with simpler options and default security groups to better meet data access requirements for both users and DAP data managers. Simplified options make it easier to connect acQuire and DAP. The DAP Server REST API provides a simple, open Web interface to services hosted by DAP Server.

Workflow Improvements

Seeker Update

Seeker is now more responsive and faster, featuring a simplified interface for searching and downloading datasets. This new interface makes it easier to find and download data with your Geosoft application or plug-in.

New Feature

RESTful DAP API

The DAP Server REST API provides a simple, open Web interface to services hosted by DAP Server. REST-based API replaces TASK and XML. Resources and operations exposed by the DAP server REST API can be integrated by clients into their Search and Discovery interfaces, such as browser-based mapping interfaces.

Data Management

acQuire Connectors for Hole and PointSample Data

Simplified options make it easier to connect acQuire and DAP. You can now publish acQuire PointSample or Hole data, including all survey and downhole geology and sample data, as a point or drillhole dataset in DAP. Use acQuire selection files to create and publish datasets for point and hole data stored in an acQuire database. acQuire Direct API users may still access the API in Oasis montaj, Target and Target for ArcGIS.

Added new dataset types

DAP 12.2 includes support for the following dataset types found in Geosoft software applications. These dataset formats include: VOXI, 3D PDF (with extents), 3DV, geostrings, geosurfaces, and GM-SYS 3D datasets.

DAP Administrator Georeference Documents

Automatically assign project extents through the DAP Administrator Report for documents without specified extents. Uses a grid or other spatial dataset in the same hierarchy. Documents will appear spatially to DAP users within a relevant project area instead of appearing valid for the entire world.

DAP Administrator Remove Duplicate Dataset(s)

Option to "Remove" added to DAP Administrator Duplicate Reports. Identify duplicate datasets by Name and/or Hierarchy and/or Extents, then delete automatically based on the dataset status.

DAP Security Levels update

DAP security levels have been streamlined to three levels with simpler options that match the needs of DAP Data Managers and user data access requirements.

  1. Extract: User has full access to search, review, and download a dataset.
  2. Discover: User can search for a dataset and review the metadata and geographical location of the dataset, but cannot preview the dataset image or extract it for local use.
  3. Restricted: User does not have access to the dataset.

Default Security Group for uploaded datasets

DAP Data Managers now have the option of applying a default security group to all new datasets, eliminating the need to explicitly set permissions for each uploaded dataset. Security options can be modified as needed for datasets with specific security requirements.

Drillhole Project Dataset Type

Added the Geosoft Drillhole Project as a supported data type in DAP. A Drillhole Project file from the Oasis montaj Drillhole extension, Target, or Target for ArcGIS is treated as a single dataset containing multiple Geosoft Databases (.gdb). The advantages is that only one dataset in the form of a Drillhole Project is needed to publish and download instead of many GDB files.

Support for ArcGIS Server 10.1

DAP Server provides support for ArcGIS v10.1 LYR files by converting the 10.1 LYR file to a 10.0 for use in desktop applications, including Oasis montaj 8.0.
