[00:00:00.770]<v ->Hi, welcome to Target for ArcGIS Pro 2.2 release Webinar.</v>

[00:00:06.680]My name is Kanita Khaled,

[00:00:08.100]and I’m a geophysicist at Seequent,

[00:00:10.160]based in our Toronto headquarters in Canada.

[00:00:14.010]In this release webinar,

[00:00:15.270]I’ll give you a quick tour of the latest features coming up

[00:00:18.150]in Target for ArcGIS pro.

[00:00:20.840]With this release,

[00:00:21.673]we’ve continued to add new enhancements and improvements

[00:00:24.920]when visualizing your subsurface,

[00:00:27.070]and Drillhole Data.

[00:00:29.030]We listened to the features that you’re looking for

[00:00:31.040]in the product and added them to our priority list.

[00:00:35.350]We hope that with these new features and improvements,

[00:00:37.780]your team can generate meaningful

[00:00:39.455]and valuable data products to improve your exploration

[00:00:43.110]and project workflows.

[00:00:45.960]I’m particularly excited to introduce to you

[00:00:48.220]a few new features, which I’ll demonstrate in this video.

[00:00:51.710]I’ll also be sharing with you,

[00:00:53.250]tips on how to use these features for yourself.

[00:00:58.870]Our latest release feature focuses on a few key areas,

[00:01:02.078]your requests, things that you mentioned

[00:01:04.590]that you’d like to see in the product,

[00:01:06.840]new or enhanced functionalities that we believe will

[00:01:09.606]take your workflow to the next level,

[00:01:13.050]overall usability and experience,

[00:01:17.580]and the latest version of Target for ArcGIS Pro,

[00:01:20.470]will support desktop versions ArcGIS Pro 2.5 and also 2.6.

[00:01:30.070]Before we get started,

[00:01:31.260]I’d like to bring your attention to a few valuable resources

[00:01:34.490]that are available to you with your subscription,

[00:01:36.900]to Target for ArcGIS pro.

[00:01:41.950]By logging onto,

[00:01:45.130]you’ll be able to access knowledge articles,

[00:01:47.447]help files and learning paths

[00:01:50.300]related to Target for ArcGIS pro.

[00:01:53.309]The features and functionalities covered in this video

[00:01:56.570]will also be covered in more detail in the online

[00:02:00.627]learning content, under learning, online learning,

[00:02:04.512]and then Target for ArcGIS pro.

[00:02:13.246]All right, let’s take a quick look at the agenda for today.

[00:02:16.980]Symbology improvements,

[00:02:18.490]we will start off with looking at some

[00:02:20.610]of the symbology improvements that are new

[00:02:22.640]to Target for ArcGIS pro.

[00:02:24.940]These improvements will allow you to offset symbology

[00:02:27.760]away from the drill trace as well as view numerical data

[00:02:32.050]such as assay as bar plots along the Drillhole trace.

[00:02:37.540]Section improvements,

[00:02:39.810]we have made section improvements such as adding map skills

[00:02:42.730]to section views.

[00:02:46.150]New Drillhole Planning Mode,

[00:02:47.990]we added a new Drillhole planning mode that allows you

[00:02:50.970]to specify the planned end of hole location and the angle

[00:02:55.930]of approach so that the ideal color location

[00:02:58.670]can then be calculated.

[00:03:00.720]I’ll walk you through how this can be done.

[00:03:04.920]Last but not least, Strip Logs.

[00:03:07.000]Strip Logs or graphical drill logs are now an available

[00:03:10.600]functionality in Target for ArcGis Pro.

[00:03:13.580]You can use Strip Logs to graphically visualize multiple

[00:03:16.410]Downhole drilling attributes to see better correlation

[00:03:19.290]in your Drillhole Dataset.

[00:03:24.170]Our first topic is Symbology Improvements.

[00:03:27.370]The obstinate symbology feature in Target for ArcGis Pro

[00:03:31.420]is a simple, yet very powerful tool for visualizing

[00:03:34.310]multiple data types together along

[00:03:36.640]the same Drillhole traced.

[00:03:42.030]Visualizing multiple data sets together such as a major

[00:03:46.380]or a minor rock type along the same Drillhole trace

[00:03:50.260]allows your team to draw further insights about your data.

[00:03:54.640]This capability allows you to visualize multiple data types

[00:03:57.848]along the same Drillhole,

[00:03:59.660]enabling correlation and better interpretation workflows.

[00:04:04.470]In addition to adjusting the size of the symbology for

[00:04:08.560]numerical data, you can also specify an offset amount

[00:04:13.048]away from the Drillhole trace.

[00:04:17.185]This allows you to stack multiple attributes or data types

[00:04:21.560]on either side of the Drillhole trace allowing for

[00:04:25.120]much easier correlation.

[00:04:28.630]Let’s go ahead and demonstrate this within the application.

[00:04:33.062]Okay, so here I have our GIS pro loaded with my project


[00:04:39.630]I also have signed into my my secret account,

[00:04:42.598]and now it can see my target toolbar.

[00:04:46.630]I’m going to go ahead and add in my Collar Data,

[00:04:51.970]and my Drillhole trace, and then zooming in,

[00:04:54.250]I can see that those elements are now visible,

[00:04:57.250]my Collars and my trace.

[00:05:00.127]If I wanted to go ahead and add in a few more of the

[00:05:03.723]attributes that are available within the data set,

[00:05:06.650]I would head over to this ‘Add to Mac group’

[00:05:10.690]and then select Drillhole data.

[00:05:13.690]And from here,

[00:05:15.290]I can see the list of all of the different types of

[00:05:18.610]attributes that are available for this Drillhole data set.

[00:05:22.380]I primarily have From/To Data available for this data set.

[00:05:29.576]I’m going to expand out my Lithology group here,

[00:05:33.040]and I can see the various types of Lithology attributes

[00:05:36.669]that are present within this data set.

[00:05:38.987]I’m going to turn on the Rock Type,

[00:05:44.550]and once I turned that on that I can see my Rock Type

[00:05:48.060]visualized on my scene here,

[00:05:51.660]and primarily it’s a Dolomitic Siltstone or a Sandstone.

[00:05:57.340]If I want to visualize another attribute such as

[00:06:00.670]the alteration or the geochemistry,

[00:06:03.010]I can go ahead and turn those elements on as well.

[00:06:06.810]So for example,

[00:06:08.140]if I were to head over to alteration and I can see that I

[00:06:11.620]have multiple types of alterations logged

[00:06:15.130]for this data set, alteration type, degree, et cetera.

[00:06:19.016]Let’s go ahead and turn on this primary alteration,

[00:06:24.800]and I can see wasn’t locked for all of the Drillholes,

[00:06:27.250]it was locked for some of them, but where it is lines,

[00:06:30.360]I can see that that alteration is actually being displayed

[00:06:33.680]right on top of the Lithology.

[00:06:35.400]So if I click those on and off from my content,

[00:06:38.210]I can see they’re overlaying right on top of each other.

[00:06:43.210]This is an okay way to look at my data and correlate

[00:06:47.450]my data, but it would be a lot easier if they were

[00:06:50.870]offset away from each other so that I could correlate them

[00:06:53.560]a little bit better.

[00:06:55.950]To do this, I’m going to head over to the Symbology tab


[00:07:04.610]And because I had this selected,

[00:07:06.940]this is the field that is currently shown under

[00:07:13.520]the color field, and I’m coloring these by categories,

[00:07:16.710]and I can see here that there is now an

[00:07:19.010]offset option available,

[00:07:21.660]and I can type in a number here to offset this attribute

[00:07:27.370]away from the Drillhole trace.

[00:07:29.130]So let’s go ahead and try 5,

[00:07:33.370]And yep, I can see that that attribute has now shifted over

[00:07:37.109]to the right side of that Drillhole trace,

[00:07:39.410]I can increase that a little bit more,

[00:07:43.300]and in a similar manner, I can select the Lithology,

[00:07:47.018]and I can see that the Symbology color field here just

[00:07:50.730]switched because I had just selected this color,

[00:07:53.560]and I can offset this to,

[00:08:00.328]minus 10 away

[00:08:02.370]from the Drillhole trace,

[00:08:03.780]so the other side of my Drillhole trace,

[00:08:06.710]and now I can see both of the attributes, very easy to see,

[00:08:11.150]very easy to correlate, side-by-side.

[00:08:14.540]I can take this a level further if I wanted to,

[00:08:17.610]so let’s say I wanted to go ahead and add in yet another

[00:08:21.210]Drillhole data type,

[00:08:25.390]we could potentially add,

[00:08:27.900]let’s say we wanted to add the grain size, for example.

[00:08:34.010]And again, I can see that the grain size is being visualized

[00:08:37.350]right along the Drillhole trace here,

[00:08:40.642]so now I’m visualizing three different attributes at the

[00:08:43.950]same time.

[00:08:44.890]If I wanted to, I could go ahead and offset that a specific

[00:08:48.270]amount as well,

[00:08:49.520]and of course you can add as many different fields as you’d

[00:08:52.820]like to visualize as makes sense for your interpretation


[00:09:01.890]Okay, so we’ve taken a look at how to visualize an offset

[00:09:05.050]categorical data like Lithology, Alteration,

[00:09:07.997]Grain size, et cetera.

[00:09:10.250]What about numerical data?

[00:09:12.520]We can do this as well.

[00:09:13.950]So one really effective way of visualizing

[00:09:16.710]numerical Drillhole datasets is by using bar plots.

[00:09:21.110]Let’s try that out.

[00:09:22.470]I’m going to go ahead and turn off some of these attributes

[00:09:26.680]that are currently on my scene here.

[00:09:29.560]Okay, scene is empty, just the colors and the traces.

[00:09:33.070]I’m going to go ahead and go back to the ‘Add to Map’ group

[00:09:36.240]and then Drillhole data.

[00:09:39.350]And this time I want to add in some of the numerical data,

[00:09:42.760]like my day here under Geochemistry.

[00:09:47.210]And the first thing I want to try is my lead zinc total

[00:09:52.520]amount here and press apply.

[00:09:55.860]And I can see that those values are then centered along

[00:10:00.720]my trace, just like it was with the categorical data.

[00:10:05.280]And so similar to before we can go back to Symbology

[00:10:11.427]and we can specify an offset amount.

[00:10:14.820]But before I do that, I want to customize a Symbology,

[00:10:18.810]not just to color by values, but also by size.

[00:10:25.210]We’re going to select color and size by values to do that.

[00:10:29.610]And we have a few new fields now available to fill in.

[00:10:35.500]So my color field is automatically lead zinc

[00:10:39.800]and the size field I’m also going to change

[00:10:42.300]to lead zinc total.

[00:10:44.060]So both color and size is then affected by

[00:10:47.300]the lead zinc field.

[00:10:51.040]The minimum size here, I’m going to set to five

[00:10:56.180]and the maximum size here, let’s do 75 and let’s press apply

[00:11:01.580]to see how that looks.

[00:11:04.520]We’re still centered along our trace, but now we can see

[00:11:07.740]a more of a histogram style look,

[00:11:11.100]this is a really effective way to kind of at a quick glance,

[00:11:15.530]see where my high values are and where my low values are

[00:11:18.640]because not just visualizing what the colors you’re also

[00:11:21.810]visualizing and categorizing by the numerical values present

[00:11:27.170]in that dataset.


[00:11:30.100]What if I’m wanting to offset this? I could do that as well.

[00:11:34.200]I could also align this to either side

[00:11:37.290]of the Drillhole trace.

[00:11:39.950]So let’s go ahead and align to the right side,

[00:11:47.640]and that would align this particular attribute

[00:11:51.280]to the right side,

[00:11:52.550]and I still have the ability here to offset,

[00:11:56.150]let’s try five,

[00:12:01.970]or negative five actually.

[00:12:07.640]There we go.

[00:12:08.473]So now I’m offset negative five to the right side

[00:12:12.030]of my Drillhole trace.

[00:12:14.660]This makes it easier for me to add in yet another Symbology.

[00:12:20.100]So let’s go back here,

[00:12:21.987]I’m going to add in my silver this time,

[00:12:25.640]and I can see it centered again,

[00:12:28.660]along my trace.

[00:12:31.170]So let me go back into my Symbology and instead of

[00:12:36.380]this uniform, color and size look,

[00:12:38.860]I’m going to try and color by size and by values.

[00:12:47.820]And I’m going to choose both my color and size field to be


[00:12:54.460]using a similar minimum, maximum size,

[00:12:57.390]I’m going to use five and then let’s try a hundred here

[00:13:05.000]then let’s align that to the left side.

[00:13:13.510]And of course you do have the ability to offset.

[00:13:22.270]That way your page is a little bit cleaner here,

[00:13:26.560]your scenes are little bit neater,

[00:13:28.350]and you can zoom around your scene here,

[00:13:31.553]and I can now try to correlate a little bit better.

[00:13:35.330]Let me go to a Drill trace that’s little bit

[00:13:37.090]more interesting here.

[00:13:38.480]So for example, this Drillhole trace,

[00:13:40.560]I have my lead zinc to the right side,

[00:13:44.080]and my silver to the left side,

[00:13:46.090]and I can now start to make relations that yes,

[00:13:49.240]where I have my higher showings of silver,

[00:13:51.870]I potentially also have higher showings of lead and zinc.

[00:13:55.840]So this leads to a much more effective

[00:13:58.310]interpretation process.

[00:14:03.070]Switching now from my 2D map to my 3D Drillhole scene,

[00:14:08.720]I can see these side by side.

[00:14:12.240]Lets drag in the Topography from the 2D map

[00:14:18.950]into my 3D scene here, so I can better,

[00:14:22.438]orient myself.

[00:14:26.422]There we go, there’s my 3D scene with my Topography

[00:14:31.692]and I can visualize this offset Symbology feature

[00:14:36.080]in a similar manner in the 3D view or the categorical data

[00:14:41.219]where I have visualized my Lithology data,

[00:14:44.412]along the Drill trace in 3D,

[00:14:47.630]and I’m also able to apply an offset and where I have data

[00:14:52.130]available I can visualize multiple categorical data sets

[00:14:56.680]side by side in a 3D manner in my Drillhole scene.

[00:15:02.700]Section Improvements.

[00:15:05.490]All features that you see on cross sections are

[00:15:08.471]modeled representations of the real world.

[00:15:12.673]Being able to see and change the scale of a section is

[00:15:16.510]really important to give the audience a sense of size of

[00:15:19.730]scale when you’re viewing these features in a section map.

[00:15:26.460]Target for ArcGis Pro 2.2 now includes the ability to be

[00:15:31.290]able to add a map scale when visualizing a section

[00:15:36.210]or user map scale when visualizing a section.

[00:15:39.720]When the cross section is viewed in section view

[00:15:43.840]with this tool right here,

[00:15:45.450]the map skill feature can then be used to view the automatic

[00:15:49.730]scaling of each section as the program has selected,

[00:15:53.780]but also be able to manually specify the scale value for


[00:15:59.280]Let’s take a quick look at this in the application.

[00:16:03.435]So here is my project viewed in plan view.

[00:16:08.110]I have already created some sections and you can see the

[00:16:11.790]outlines of these sections and they can be turned on and off

[00:16:15.447]from the section manager here,

[00:16:18.330]which I can access from the subsurface tool group section,

[00:16:22.900]and then manage.

[00:16:26.490]From here, I can see the outline of the sections in 3D.

[00:16:31.757]And if I wanted to view these in a more cross section view,

[00:16:36.830]I can select the section view tool right here,

[00:16:40.530]and that would enable a section view on my scene.

[00:16:46.600]The first section here,

[00:16:48.212]the appropriate scale that’s been chosen for this section

[00:16:52.200]automatically is 2,870.

[00:16:55.800]Now, if I select another section in my project,

[00:17:04.740]the appropriate scale for that section is slightly higher.

[00:17:09.940]So depending on the scale that’s appropriate for visualizing

[00:17:13.850]your data,

[00:17:14.683]and this can definitely be a very manual process where you

[00:17:16.920]might zoom in and choose the scale to be smaller or bigger,

[00:17:21.723]the value here for the scale will change,

[00:17:24.230]so if I zoom in, this value here is changing.

[00:17:31.270]Additionally, you can also type in the scale yourself,

[00:17:35.850]if you like everything to be uniform,

[00:17:37.590]and you want them all to have the same scale.

[00:17:40.090]You can go ahead and type that in here,

[00:17:43.730]and that would apply the specified scale to your

[00:17:47.534]cross-section view.

[00:17:50.970]We’ve introduced a new Drillhole Planning Mode called

[00:17:53.997]“Target and Trace”.

[00:17:55.471]If your Drill program is looking to add a new Drillhole to

[00:17:59.590]a preexisting target, or say a geological feature,

[00:18:03.310]you can specify the location of the target and the details

[00:18:06.310]of your Drillhole trace to generate a new planned Drillhole.

[00:18:11.010]This is the method we’re calling Target and Trace.

[00:18:14.902]You can specify the target location either interactively or


[00:18:20.450]and then you need to specify an azimuth and inclination

[00:18:23.680]of the Drillhole trace,

[00:18:24.610]and then Target for ArcGis Pro will automatically

[00:18:27.430]calculate the required whole length and the color location

[00:18:31.080]required to reach that specific target body.

[00:18:35.920]Once you have that Drillhole plan,

[00:18:37.570]you can easily plot it using the add Drillhole data tool.

[00:18:41.560]So let’s go ahead into the application and see what that

[00:18:44.260]looks like.

[00:18:46.230]So here’s my Drillhole project again, viewed from top.

[00:18:50.660]I’m actually going to go ahead and turn off my digital

[00:18:53.792]elevation model so that I’m just left with my color and

[00:18:58.583]trace trip to,

[00:19:01.740]a lower transparency world elevation 3D terrain.

[00:19:05.540]And I’m also going to bring in my Dacite Dyke unit

[00:19:10.380]that I have interpreted for this project.

[00:19:14.580]So this blue surface here denotes the Dacite Dyke unit.

[00:19:22.100]And I can see that I already have quite a few Drillholes

[00:19:25.149]that have been sunk into this area,

[00:19:28.090]so it’s fairly well drilled.

[00:19:30.730]If I take a look at my mineralization,

[00:19:36.280]turn on these ISO surfaces that represent the mineralization

[00:19:42.590]in this area, in this case, it’s old.

[00:19:45.600]I can see that most of the mineralization is actually on

[00:19:49.328]this side of the wall, this side of the Dacite Dyke here,

[00:19:53.731]but for the sake of better understanding of my area,

[00:19:58.776]I want to be able to drill another Drillhole right in the

[00:20:02.920]middle here through this Dacite Dyke unit.

[00:20:06.140]I want another Drillhole planted right here.

[00:20:09.520]So if I have a target location or specific geological target

[00:20:14.470]that I want to hit,

[00:20:15.690]I can use the Drillhole planning tool right in the

[00:20:19.180]subsurface tool option to do that.

[00:20:23.580]So let’s click on the Drillhole planning tool.

[00:20:27.818]If you’re familiar with the tool, you know that there is,

[00:20:32.009]a few different ways to generate new Drillhole already.

[00:20:37.280]We had already introduced the Collar and Target method,

[00:20:42.620]you would want to select this option if you have

[00:20:45.600]the Collar and the target location already,

[00:20:49.110]so, you know the collar, you know the target location,

[00:20:52.220]and then we want to target for our Pro to calculate the

[00:20:56.200]trace information.

[00:20:58.380]We also have the collar and trace method.

[00:21:02.788]This is if you specify the collar location and you know,

[00:21:09.720]the trace information,

[00:21:11.520]and you’re not taking into consideration of any targets,

[00:21:16.020]Target for Arc Pro will go ahead and generate

[00:21:18.730]a new planned Drillhole.

[00:21:20.570]And then the final method that we’re talking about today is

[00:21:23.040]the Target and Trace method where I have a target

[00:21:26.470]that I want to hit.

[00:21:28.490]So I can either type in the Eastern,

[00:21:32.620]Northern and the elevation of the target mainly,

[00:21:36.500]this is a little hard if you don’t know exactly where

[00:21:39.505]that body is,

[00:21:41.192]or you could pick a location on your 3D scene interactively,

[00:21:46.887]by using this red target button right here.

[00:21:52.670]So once you do that,

[00:21:53.790]your cursor will change to the red target cursor,

[00:21:58.276]and I’m actually going to go ahead and go into my

[00:22:02.307]edit menu here and turn on my snapping,

[00:22:07.500]my snapping is currently off, so I’m going to turn that on.

[00:22:15.002]And with my snapping turned on,

[00:22:21.430]and my target location turned on,

[00:22:23.770]I should be able to snap to a location along

[00:22:29.280]this Dacite day.

[00:22:30.350]So let me try that again, there we go.

[00:22:33.952]So now I can see that the Dacite Dyke

[00:22:38.310]is coming live when I hover over it,

[00:22:41.160]so I can now pick a location that honors the exact

[00:22:45.800]intersection or the exact location where that Dacite Dyke

[00:22:49.860]unit is when I click on that location.

[00:22:52.310]So I’m going to go ahead and click on that right here and

[00:22:56.790]notice that the X, Y and Z location is populated

[00:23:01.043]for that target.

[00:23:07.943]At this point, I’ve selected the target location,

[00:23:10.200]and I have the option of doing one of two things.

[00:23:13.940]I can either snap the collar location to topography.

[00:23:19.330]This would require me to have a topography data set for my

[00:23:23.770]project, which I do.

[00:23:25.490]So I’m going to specify that and notice when I turned this

[00:23:30.510]on, or when I toggle this on my hole length field,

[00:23:34.411]got grayed out, that’s because now Target for ArcGis Pro

[00:23:40.330]has a reference topography,

[00:23:42.560]which it can use to generate a hole length automatically.

[00:23:48.140]If I had left this term off,

[00:23:50.740]I would be able to specify my hole length manually.

[00:23:55.202]So I’m going to leave that turned on.

[00:23:58.130]And I know from this particular area that I would like my,

[00:24:05.010]Drillhole planned to be roughly 60 and 75 inclination

[00:24:11.920]and azimuth, for azimuth and inclination.

[00:24:16.780]And now I can see that that Drillhole trace,

[00:24:21.583]that planned Drillhole trace is now coming in,

[00:24:25.350]as this blue dashed line, so that’s my new trace.

[00:24:29.670]And I can see that indeed it is intercepting

[00:24:32.501]that Dacite Dyke unit,

[00:24:34.650]and it is located at an azimuth and a dip that I want it to.

[00:24:44.037]Then I can specify a name for this planned Drillhole,

[00:24:47.730]I can call it P-H-Zero-Zero-One,

[00:24:55.660]and I can go ahead and save that.

[00:25:00.460]Once I have that saved, it does show up on my scene here

[00:25:06.050]as my planned collar, target and trace.

[00:25:10.350]It is now also an element of my Drillhole geo database.

[00:25:15.920]So if I go back to my catalog and expand out

[00:25:19.270]my geo database,

[00:25:25.400]I can see that I now have new feature classes under my

[00:25:30.277]Drillhole data set,

[00:25:31.700]so I have new planned collars, targets, and traces,

[00:25:35.450]and if I like, I can export these out for further drilling.

[00:25:43.610]Strip Logs.

[00:25:44.950]With this release, our team has added the much requested

[00:25:48.000]and powerful new workflow of creating Strip Logs.

[00:25:53.370]A Strip Log is a graphical representation of a sequence

[00:25:57.390]of geological features obtained from a single Drillhole.

[00:26:03.060]The new Strip Log functionality in Target for ArcGis Pro

[00:26:07.570]leverages the already existing native as remap and

[00:26:12.530]layout tools to create data rich, informative,

[00:26:16.310]downhole data plots, or Strip Logs.

[00:26:20.160]We’ve included a complete workflow,

[00:26:22.200]including layout templates for creating Strip Logs within

[00:26:26.100]ArcGis Pro, where you can select the Drillhole you want

[00:26:29.940]to plot as a Strip Log and then select a number of

[00:26:34.060]different attributes to be displayed in each of these

[00:26:38.207]chart frames within the layout template.

[00:26:42.550]You can display numerical attributes such as assay

[00:26:45.820]like these in bar plots or as profile lines.

[00:26:51.430]You can also visualize text or categorical attributes such

[00:26:56.250]as rock types or lithology along the Drillhole trace.

[00:27:02.250]The appearance of these chart frames are all modifiable

[00:27:07.300]and can be modified from within the appearance tool

[00:27:11.900]inside the Strip Log panel.

[00:27:15.820]One very interesting feature here is the ability to

[00:27:19.537]visualize multiple text-based attributes,

[00:27:23.586]say for example,

[00:27:25.280]major and minor rock types along the same Drillhole trace,

[00:27:29.920]so here I have two different rock types or two different

[00:27:33.900]attributes, a major and minor rock types visualized along

[00:27:37.130]the same Drillhole.

[00:27:39.025]And of course the colors used here can be customized for

[00:27:43.080]a nice tidy report that’s ready to be printed out or shared

[00:27:47.795]as a PDF file.

[00:27:50.460]So I’m going to now show you how to do this for yourself.

[00:27:53.280]Let’s hop into the application.

[00:27:57.000]Okay, so here is my Drillhole scene again,

[00:28:00.380]and from here I would like to go ahead and create

[00:28:04.110]a Strip Log in the target toolbar within the reports group,

[00:28:09.580]there is now the option to create a Strip Log,

[00:28:12.440]using the Strip Log tool.

[00:28:14.580]Let’s select that.

[00:28:17.590]The first thing you’ll want to do to get started

[00:28:20.750]is to select a layout file.

[00:28:23.650]The layout file or the layout field of the Strip Logs tool,

[00:28:28.021]is used to import a predefined layout file in the format of

[00:28:34.460]a .pagx file, as the basis for your new Strip Log.

[00:28:41.550]These layout files can be saved,

[00:28:44.157]they can be manually created,

[00:28:46.920]they can be customized and created,

[00:28:49.200]and then shared between different members of

[00:28:51.960]your organization so that you can have consistency

[00:28:54.830]across all of your projects to have the same,

[00:28:57.203]consistent look for all of your Strip Log files.

[00:29:02.660]So my colleague has created a layout file here

[00:29:06.470]for me already,

[00:29:07.440]that’s what I’m going to be using to create my Strip Log.

[00:29:12.480]And I can see that the holes that are available to be

[00:29:16.580]plotted are the ones that I have within my project,

[00:29:19.430]you can select any one of your holes and then select import,

[00:29:24.170]to import in that Strip Log layout.

[00:29:31.070]So here is my empty Strip Log layout file,

[00:29:36.750]right now it doesn’t have anything,

[00:29:38.410]but it does have placeholders for various chart frames,

[00:29:44.643]a legend and lithological data.

[00:29:48.320]This is just the way that my colleague built this layout

[00:29:51.130]file, if you want to customize it with your own format

[00:29:56.690]or varying numbers of chart frames,

[00:29:58.840]you can do that as well.

[00:30:01.560]So the first thing I want to specify is the title,

[00:30:06.060]and I do have some title information here.

[00:30:10.360]So for the title, I’m going to use the Strip Log title.

[00:30:14.930]I want to be able to display my collar location information,

[00:30:20.650]So my X, Y and Z.

[00:30:22.580]So I’m going to go ahead and select that as well.

[00:30:25.623]And I also have trace information, so that’s your dip

[00:30:28.870]and your azimuth,

[00:30:30.310]and I’m going to bring that in as well.

[00:30:35.610]And once I select preview, that generates the three elements

[00:30:41.240]that I just selected, the title here, the collar location

[00:30:45.210]and the trace information including the depth

[00:30:48.210]and the azimuth and the full length of your Drillhole,

[00:30:52.888]for this particular Drillhole, WP032.

[00:30:58.302]I can then head over to the data strips tool,

[00:31:04.210]and the data strips tool is where you select what

[00:31:08.172]data source you want to visualize in each of these

[00:31:13.910]chart frames.

[00:31:15.750]So chart frame one here,

[00:31:18.430]I’m going to go ahead and select the assay attribute for

[00:31:23.110]my Drillhole dataset.

[00:31:26.600]And I am going to select gold, AU GPT, to knowing gold.

[00:31:33.620]And from here I have the option to either plot it

[00:31:36.610]as a bar plot or a line plot.

[00:31:39.320]I’m going to go ahead and select bar,

[00:31:42.292]and I’m going to go ahead and fill out these other chart

[00:31:46.430]frames as well, so same source file,

[00:31:49.528]for the attribute, I’ll select silver,

[00:31:53.620]again, as a bar plot,

[00:31:56.940]I’ll do the same for the third frame,

[00:31:59.040]let’s do copper this time, as a bar plot,

[00:32:04.600]and let’s also do one other attribute,

[00:32:08.860]let’s do the arsenic,

[00:32:12.530]and let’s go ahead and make this a line or a profile

[00:32:16.344]just to switch things up.

[00:32:18.570]And the last frame here is lithology data frame over to the

[00:32:22.270]left here.

[00:32:23.480]And for this, I can select my lithology attribute group

[00:32:29.900]and notice that I am able to select multiple attributes

[00:32:34.960]here if I have wanted to.

[00:32:37.190]So let’s go ahead and both,

[00:32:41.440]just one for now actually, let’s do the rock.

[00:32:44.410]And for that, we’re going to select the plot to be

[00:32:48.680]a rock type, so it’s categorical data,

[00:32:52.400]and we can go ahead and preview that.

[00:33:02.200]And that has now gone in an automatically generated

[00:33:06.490]some colors for each one of my numerical chart frames.

[00:33:11.820]If I wanted to change the way this looks, as I mentioned,

[00:33:16.750]all of the chart frame appearances are modifiable,

[00:33:22.120]to modify each of the chart frames,

[00:33:24.140]I would go into the appearance toolbox tool here,

[00:33:27.985]and the first thing it’s showing me is the lithology data,

[00:33:32.710]so let’s leave this as is,

[00:33:35.550]let’s head over to our chart frame number one,

[00:33:38.810]which is gold,

[00:33:41.060]and I’m going to leave my gold and the color red,

[00:33:43.460]I think that’s okay.

[00:33:45.350]Let’s go with the chart frame number two,

[00:33:49.950]and I’m going to change my silver color here to maybe

[00:33:56.010]something blueish.

[00:33:59.050]And again, this is as you desire, right?

[00:34:04.700]I will change the copper as well,

[00:34:09.800]to a more coppery hue.

[00:34:13.720]And the arsenic,

[00:34:17.360]I’ll change to a bluer color here.

[00:34:21.090]And I can go ahead and preview that.

[00:34:26.050]That would then populate the chart frames with the colors

[00:34:30.880]that I’ve just selected.

[00:34:32.560]Now what if I wanted to visualize multiple data types

[00:34:37.200]along the same Drillhole?

[00:34:39.310]So for example, WP032, I currently have one lithological

[00:34:44.950]attribute along the Drillhole trace.

[00:34:47.370]If I want to add a second group,

[00:34:49.490]I could turn that on and then review that,

[00:34:53.780]but as you can predict, they will overlay on top of

[00:34:57.380]each other once they’re visualized.

[00:35:00.670]To avoid this, what I can do is go into my appearance tab,

[00:35:07.560]select my lithology data,

[00:35:12.180]and notice that there is an option here to offset,

[00:35:15.950]so I’m going to offset one group to minus six and the other

[00:35:21.090]to plus six, so to either side at that Drillhole trace

[00:35:25.160]and preview again,

[00:35:27.540]this will ensure that both of these attributes can be

[00:35:31.650]simultaneously visualized along the same Drillhole trace.

[00:35:36.570]Similarly I can visualize numerical data along the

[00:35:41.274]same Drillhole trace,

[00:35:43.550]so for example, if I wanted to visualize both my gold

[00:35:46.800]and copper simultaneously, I could do that.

[00:35:50.910]I would have to go back to my data strips,

[00:35:54.170]and from chart frame three, for example, I could select both

[00:35:57.810]copper and gold.

[00:36:02.319]And for the appearance,

[00:36:04.620]I would then have to go in and specify the color that I want

[00:36:09.090]to apply it for my gold recall that I had originally used

[00:36:14.350]a red for the gold, so we want to keep that consistent,

[00:36:18.090]and I can go ahead and apply that to preview.

[00:36:27.480]And that should then show me where not only my high gold

[00:36:33.490]showings are but also where my high copper showings are,

[00:36:36.820]allowing for a better correlation within my Strip Log

[00:36:40.960]layout frame.

[00:36:42.440]Now, because we’re leveraging native as

[00:36:45.380]re-functionalities, all of these chart elements here

[00:36:49.378]can be modified with the chart properties tool.

[00:36:53.950]So for example, what’s appearing on,

[00:36:59.850]your chart title here can be modified,

[00:37:03.370]This is automatically populated, AU GPT comma CU,

[00:37:08.650]you could modify that as you pleased

[00:37:12.880]and make it a little bit more customized.

[00:37:18.540]You can also specify what you want to visualize along your

[00:37:23.740]x-axis, y-axis, how you want to format it, et cetera.

[00:37:28.550]And that should then be reflected right away onto layout


[00:37:35.923]Once you’re happy with your Strip Log layout,

[00:37:39.280]you can go ahead and head over to the share tool here and

[00:37:43.074]export out that Strip Log into a PDF file.

[00:37:55.020]Once that export is completed,

[00:37:56.550]here is my finished product that is now ready for publishing

[00:38:01.150]and sharing.

[00:38:03.930]So that’s the end of our demos and presentation for today,

[00:38:07.470]for our new product release for Target for ArcGis Pro.
