About this Release

DAP Server 11.2.1 is a scheduled software upgrade available to all maintained customers. The upgrade includes software improvements and corrects a number of reported issues. The upgrade also incorporates changes to DAP Admin and Geosoft MDE.

New Capabilities


Support for ESRI

With this release of our DAP server, Geosoft has made the decision to continue to support ArcGIS ver 9.3.1 formats. This decision was made so that we could continue to provide the broadest range of support to our users as ArcGIS 9.X.x is not forward compatible with ArcGIS 10.00 formats.

With this release, we will continue to catalog and subsequently publish ESRI data as ArcGIS ver 9.3.1 datasets. Data and information submitted to the DAP server via our Geosoft MDE toolset will be managed as ArcGIS ver 9.3.1 formats as part of the submission process.

Data manually submitted by end users using ArcGIS ver 10.00, must first be saved as ArcGIS ver 9.3.1 datasets before submission. This workflow is covered in a FAQ topic.

Support for ArcGIS ver 10.00 is planned for our next major release, scheduled for 2011. For further information please contact either your Account Manager or our Services group.
