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.

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 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
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.
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.
