About this release
Oasis montaj 18.104.22.168 UXO Update 1 is a scheduled software upgrade available to all maintained customers and provides enhancements to the UXO extensions for Oasis montaj 22.214.171.124. There are many new tools and features in UX-Analyze (Advanced) for working with advanced EM sensors such as MetalMapper and TEMTADS. Several of these new tools simplify the data processing and classification workflow, making it quicker and easier to follow. There are also several tools that bring new capabilities to UX-Analyze, such as working Instrument Verification Strip (IVS) data, performing cluster analysis and visualizing the result with scatterplots.
In addition, many customer-reported issues have been addressed in UX-Analyze (Advanced) and UXO Marine.
These and more changes are described in the Capabilities section below.
To install this update, you'll need a license for Oasis montaj 8.2 and the UX-Analyze Advanced extension. If you don't have one, contact us and we can help you get set up. The system requirements are the same as for Oasis montaj 8.2.
Installing the software
To install this update, you'll need to have Oasis montaj 126.96.36.199 installed and then download the resource file from the link at the top of this page. Here's how:
- Click the download button at the top of this page to download the software update resource file.
- Unzip the zip file and save the resource update file (*.geosoft_resource_pack) to the same folder location.
- On the Help menu in Oasis montaj 8.1, click Updates, then click Apply Resource Update.
- In the Manual Resource Update dialog, click the browse button to locate and select the resource updates file (*.geosoft_resource_pack).
- Click Update. If there are no new resources to be updated, a Nothing to Update window informs you the resource pack has no new resources for you (this will happen if it has been previously installed or does not apply to your version). If there are new resources to be updated, the system automatically updates them. When the update is complete, the Update Complete window informs you that the update was successful. Click OK.
- Restart Oasis montaj for the changes to take effect.
- After updating, to ensure proper changes are applied: go in to the Geosoft\User\etc folder and delete the following files: UXA.Config and SensorTable2.xml. The updated files will be copied to your User folder next time you run UX-Analyze.
- To confirm the update has installed correctly, on the Help menu in Oasis montaj 188.8.131.52 click About Oasis montaj. The Geosoft Oasis Montaj splash screen will appear. Click on Module versions to retrieve the module versions. The UXO Software Solutions version should read 184.108.40.206508.
For technical support options, please visit the Support Centre. All users may access the forums and other resources available within the Support Community. In particular, we recommend that you join the UXOnet e-mail list, if you are working in the UXO industry. It provides occasional updates on new releases, training opportunities and other information.
Added further validation to VOXI
If you accidentally specified incorrectly a potential parameter or data and caused the data to fall outside these ranges, a warning message will alert you. You will then have the opportunity to review your entries and make corrections before using the inversion service, saving time and cost in running an incorrect inversion
Default error set to an infinitesimal non-zero floor value
This change was made to accommodate the following situation: when running a forward model, the sensor channel does not matter and you can pick any channel. If this channel contains a constant, then the error is set to zero and forces you to specify a value.
By nudging the error just a touch over zero, we avoid this issue and you can perform forward and inverse modelling using the default settings without having to enter any other information.
