Sunsetting Target for ArcMap

From December 31, 2024, Target for ArcMap will be retired

At Seequent, it is our mission to unite the insights of geoscience and GIS teams – and their stakeholders. To better support this and in line with Esri’s retirement plan for ArcMap, enhancements to the Target for ArcMap product will be discontinued and the product will be sunset.

We’re here to help you transition to the powerful ArcGIS Pro environment with Target for ArcGIS Pro.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are you retiring Target for ArcMap?

Seequent is sunsetting Target for ArcMap to coincide with the announcement from Esri that ArcMap will be retired. ArcGIS 10.8.1 is the current release of ArcMap and will continue to be supported until March 01, 2026.

Will you be doing any further development such as new or enhanced features or bug fixes for Target for ArcMap?

No.  There will be no additional development on Target for ArcMap from this point forward. The only occasion that a minor release may occur (until December 31, 2023) would be to address critical customer reported issues.

Wait! You said we aren’t doing any new releases, so why did the version number change?

Target for ArcMap shares the same installer as the Oasis montaj and Target products, as such, the version number will be updated when either of those products releases a new version. Unless stated in the MySeequent release notes the only change for Target for ArcMap would be the version number – there will be no feature changes or bug fixes in the product going forward.

Are there plans to remove Target for ArcMap from the installer?

Yes.  This will be scheduled.  Dates are still to be determined, but it likely will not happen until a release in 2022.

If you are removing the installer for Target for ArcMap, how can I upgrade to the most current release?

Once we move forward with removing the installer,  you will need to use the last available release of the Geosoft product suite where the installer included Target for ArcMap to reinstall.

Will Seequent certify Target for ArcMap on new operating systems or new versions of Esri?

No.  There will not be any additional certifications or validation testing on new supported environments for Target for ArcMap.

Can the subscriptions for Target for ArcMap and Target for ArcGIS Pro be shared or ‘split’ across two user IDs?

No,  you cannot share the Target for ArcMap and Target for ArcGIS Pro seats amongst multiple users.  This is a violation of the End User Licence Agreement (EULA).
