More advanced mapping software and solutions for GIS systems have led to greater precision in interrogating geoscientific datasets, and obtaining 3D insight of the Earth’s subsurface. Geosoft provides geology mapping and geochemical analysis capabilities within Esri ArcGIS to increase targeting effectiveness and reduce uncertainty within discovery efforts.
Exploring in GIS
Working effectively within GIS, and sharing multidisciplinary data and knowledge, is an important requirement for geoscientists. Geosoft provides GIS mapping and analysis capabilities to conduct critical tasks for exploration and earth science projects.
We help to solve these challenges for geoscientists working within Esri ArcGIS:
- Effective management of drilling projects
- 2D and 3D visualisation of drillhole and borehole geology data
- Analysis and mapping of multi-element geochemistry
- Generation of integrated interpretations and 3D models
Geosoft technology is widely used in mineral exploration companies, as well as government and other organisations. In addition to developing extensions for ArcGIS, we have also embedded Esri’s ArcEngine within our software platform, enabling geoscientists to use Esri tools to natively display Arc .mxd and .lyr files, without leaving the Geosoft environment. ArcGIS and Geosoft users can share their files seamlessly and spend more time collaborating in an increasingly integrated environment.
Earth Mapping and Analysis in ArcGIS
Target for ArcGIS
Target for ArcGIS is a geology mapping extension for Esri ArcGIS that simplifies the visualisation and analysis of drillhole and borehole geology data within ArcMap. Using Target for ArcGIS, geoscientists can view their data in 2D and 3D, within plan maps, profiles and section map views; fence diagrams and graphical drill logs; and 3D models. They can conduct integrated analysis to enhance subsurface insight.
Geochemistry for ArcGIS
Geochemistry for ArcGIS enables explorers to analyse geochemical data within their Esri ArcGIS environment. Geochemical investigations require the ability to process and analyse all components of geochemical sampling in context with the geology and geophysics. Using Geochemistry for ArcGIS, geoscientists can effectively examine multivariate relationships, uncovering underlying structures, identifying outliers and anomalies. They can create informative, visually impactful maps to present results.
