This course will provide you with the fundamental skills to process, visualize and interpret surface and drillhole data within Target for ArcMap.

Participants will learn to use key surface mapping tools, including importing data and assigning projection information, symbolising point data, and creating and displaying gridded data and contours.

The course also focuses on quickly and easily creating Quick Maps and shape files for plan maps, section maps, fence diagrams, strip logs and 3D views. Working with prepared drillhole projects, participants will explore additional topics for managing, mapping and modelling drillhole projects.
