About this Release

Target 7.2.1 is a scheduled software upgrade available to all 7.2 maintained customers. The upgrade includes software improvements, workflow efficiencies and corrects numerous reported issues. The 7.2.1 update also includes 7.2 Service Pack 1 which addressed an installation issue discovered in the 7.2 release.

New Improvements

Support for ArcGIS 10

With this version we have added support for ESRI ArcGIS version 10.  For clients who have ArcGIS 10 installed, you can open version 10 layer (LYR) files and version 10 map documents (MXD) files inside of Target.  You can also create version 10 MXD files inside of Target.

For clients without a licensed version of ArcGIS 10 Target 7.2.1 will open version 9.x LYR and MXD files. The ArcGIS Engine v9.3.1 installed with Target does not support Arc v10 MXD or LYR files. An upgrade to ArcEngine v10 will be available in a subsequent release.

For additional information on ArcGIS compatibility please refer to our Knowledge Base articles.

General Improvements

  • Improved speed of zooming and panning on maps containing very large grids or raster images.– Large images or grids in maps cause the map to be very slow when zooming & panning.  Grid caching has been added, so the first time a map is opened, the progress bar displays "Copying grid data to pager" followed by "Caching grid".  After this, zooming & panning around on the map is instantaneous.
  • Improved support for Oblique Stereographic projections including support for the New Brunswick Stereographic (NAD83) projection.
  • Map packing now includes the XML files for the grids. When packing a map the xml files associated with an AGG layer (grid, picture) and a voxel will be packed inside the map. When the map is unpacked these XML files are restored. Also added message to notify when overwriting files on map unpacking.
  • Improved support for MapInfo fill patterns.
  • Improved rendering for large arrays.

Drillhole Improvements

  • Added the ability to directly export drill hole traces as a polyline shapefile.
  • Improved plan map collar and trace SHP exports, including attributes.
  • Added a Refresh and replot drillhole option for stacked sections.

Seeker Improvements

  • Image datasets may now be reprojected. Modified the Cart layout to combine the "Rasters" download parameters.
  • HXYZ files are also reprojected to the map's coordinate system.
  • JPEG2000 files can be downloaded in their native format, however if the image is smaller than 128x128 pixels it will be provided as a TIF.
