Target 7.3

What's New

Target 7.5

Target 7.5 is a scheduled software upgrade available to all maintained customers. Target 7.5 includes improved 2D to 3D usability, the addition of new 3D gridding methods and enhancements to our 3D subsurface visualization capabilities. Enhanced software usability will help you be more productive when working on your exploration geology projects.

New Features

Ease of Use

Display Bing Maps imagery

You can now view air photo or satellite remote sensing imagery in a Geosoft Map by connecting to the Bing Maps online data source. The imagery is streamed and displayed as a layer in your map, not downloaded as a saved file. To use Bing Maps, you'll need to be connected to the internet and logged in with your Geosoft ID. When you are offline, the Bing Maps layer will appear greyed out until you connect again.

Increased number of recent files and projects

We have increased the number of recent files and projects names displayed in an project, making it easier to locate and open projects for customers working with many exploration projects.

3D Visualization

3D IDW gridding method

Added 3D Inverse Distance Weighting (IDW) gridding. This 3D gridding method works well for interpolating geochemical and drillhole data and provides a quick alternative to the 3D Kriging method.

Angled clipping planes in a 3D view

You now have the ability to define an arbitrary angled clipping plane, providing you with greater flexibility for 3D viewing This angled plane can be used to visually clip any of the selected objects in your 3D View. Visually clip datasets along angled planes that coincide with dominant geological directions, structural trends, and survey orientations. Any or all of the existing X,Y,Z axes can be used as angled clipping planes

Drillhole Plotting

Add 3D Vector files to Section and Plan Maps

You can now include 3D shapefiles and 3D DXF files while generating a section map in Target or Target for ArcGIS. This enables you to add 3D vector files (such as ore body wire frames and open pit outlines from mine planning packages) to section maps, plan maps and level plan slices. The imported 3D files appear in the correct location on your 2D section map. The 3D DXF file is clipped to the thickness of the section map (only the portion which exists inside the section is visible) while the entire 3D shapefile is projected onto the centre slice of the section.

Drag and drop layers from Geosoft Maps to the 3D Viewer

Now you can drag and drop any map group (or multiple selected groups) from a Geosoft Map to the 3D Viewer. This enables you to quickly display interpretations drawn on section maps within the 3D View. All the section map groups will appear in their correct geospatial orientation in the 3D view.

Online Services

Geosoft Connect uses Geosoft ID to access online services

Geosoft customers can use their Geosoft ID to access any Geosoft online service that requires a secure sign-in, including website downloads, online updates, and Bing Maps. As a customer, your Geosoft ID is the only sign-in you'll need to remember when accessing any of our services, communications, or website.

Updates for Target Extensions
