[00:00:03.247]<v Lisa>All right.</v>

[00:00:04.080]Hi everyone.

[00:00:05.230]Thanks everyone for joining.

[00:00:06.870]My name is Lisa McGregor.

[00:00:08.080]I’m the VP Global Marketing for Seequent,

[00:00:10.420]and we are coming to live today

[00:00:11.920]from Toronto and Montreal, Canada.

[00:00:14.880]In today’s webinar,

[00:00:15.790]we’ll be presenting the latest addition to the target family

[00:00:18.390]Target for ArcGIS Pro.

[00:00:20.030]I’d like to take a moment to briefly introduce Seequent

[00:00:22.290]and our partnership with Esri.

[00:00:24.500]Seequent is a world leader in the development

[00:00:26.160]of geoscience analysis, modeling

[00:00:27.940]and collaborative technologies

[00:00:29.770]for understanding subsurface, geoscience

[00:00:31.670]and engineering design solutions.

[00:00:34.120]Our solutions enable customers to analyze complex data,

[00:00:37.100]manage risk and ultimately make better decisions

[00:00:39.460]about earth environment and energy challenges.

[00:00:42.920]The Seequent portfolio includes Leapfrog, Geosoft,

[00:00:46.724]Geoslope and MX deposit across geological,

[00:00:49.810]geophysical, geo-technical

[00:00:51.660]and geoscience data management solutions.

[00:00:54.330]We serve customers in mining, civil environmental,

[00:00:57.270]energy and government sectors.

[00:00:59.810]Seequent is an Esri gold business partner,

[00:01:01.760]and we work closely to design, develop and launch

[00:01:04.010]new extensions and create essential workflows

[00:01:06.530]for geoscientists who wants to use their data

[00:01:08.500]in ArcGIS Pro by seamlessly integrating with tools

[00:01:11.360]from the Esri platform that many are already familiar with.

[00:01:15.220]Our partnership with Esri ensures that we can deliver

[00:01:17.550]interoperability that allows our customers

[00:01:19.560]to get the full benefit from both targets

[00:01:21.320]and as Esri ArcGIS, geoscience workflows,

[00:01:24.190]creating a world-leading end to end solution.

[00:01:27.290]Our speaker today is Sara Deschamps.

[00:01:29.380]She’s a product owner at Seequent,

[00:01:31.120]and she has been instrumental in the design

[00:01:32.880]and development of Target for ArcGIS Pro.

[00:01:35.900]So without further ado, please take it away, Sara.

[00:01:40.590]<v Sara>Okay, thanks Lisa.</v>

[00:01:42.300]Hi everybody, I’m Sara.

[00:01:44.640]And I’m just going to (clears throat) run through

[00:01:47.240]a little bit of a quick agenda today.

[00:01:49.630]So as Lisa said, we’re going to be introducing

[00:01:51.830]and showing a new product that we’ve just launched

[00:01:55.330]called Target for ArcGIS Pro.

[00:01:57.920]And this is an adding obviously for ArcGIS Pro

[00:01:58.875]that enables you to work with your drillhole

[00:02:02.230]and subsurface datasets in your GIS platform.

[00:02:06.040]So I’m going to start off a bit

[00:02:07.260]with a little bit of background.

[00:02:08.870]What is ArcGIS Pro and why are we building on top of it?

[00:02:12.860]I’m going to introduce the product itself,

[00:02:14.697]a little bit of an overview about it,

[00:02:17.060]and I’m going to get into a product demo

[00:02:19.140]and that’s going to take probably the majority

[00:02:21.270]of our time today, 25 minutes maybe 30 minutes,

[00:02:23.950]something like that.

[00:02:25.570]And then we’ll follow up with some Q&amp;A,

[00:02:28.010]if you have questions as we go along, as Lisa said,

[00:02:29.990]you can put them into the chat box or the questions box

[00:02:32.070]at the bottom and we’ll look at those at the end

[00:02:35.200]and any, we don’t get to at the end,

[00:02:36.790]we can also follow up by email, okay?

[00:02:42.530]So I’m just starting off with a little bit

[00:02:44.970]of background here on what is ArcGIS Pro itself.

[00:02:48.230]We have a long history of building geoscience workflows

[00:02:51.540]on the previous ArcGIS Pro, which was called ArcMap,

[00:02:55.880]but really the future of Esri product

[00:02:57.740]as you know ArcGIS Pro.

[00:03:00.210]So you might’ve heard of ArcMap,

[00:03:01.655]you might’ve heard of ArcGIS or ArcGIS desktop even

[00:03:05.970]and sometimes that can be a little confusing

[00:03:07.390]there are a couple of different application names

[00:03:08.810]thrown around but both ArcMap and ArcGIS Pro

[00:03:14.660]are the two main desktop products developed by Esri,

[00:03:19.440]which is one of the largest

[00:03:21.660]GIS software providers in the world.

[00:03:24.520]So ArcMap is an older product

[00:03:26.370]it was released in 1999, about 20 years ago,

[00:03:30.495]it is a 32 bit product and it’s still being maintained.

[00:03:33.730]You can’t actively purchase it anymore,

[00:03:36.900]but and only critical bugs are being fixed

[00:03:39.830]and Esri has said that they are planning on

[00:03:42.200]retiring that product to the next couple of years,

[00:03:44.870]but there are still thousands of people

[00:03:46.950]who use ArcMap every day.

[00:03:48.020]So it is still a very popular,

[00:03:50.610]a little screen capture down there below

[00:03:52.490]in case you forgot what it looks like.

[00:03:55.540]On the other hand ArcGIS Pro,

[00:03:57.834]is the newer 64 bit version, it was released in 2015,

[00:04:01.680]but it was really in a kind of an extended beta

[00:04:03.550]for a couple of years.

[00:04:05.040]It became the primary application

[00:04:07.860]about two years ago in 2017

[00:04:10.110]and it is the defacto replacement for ArcMap.

[00:04:12.490]So going forward, everything that Esri is doing,

[00:04:15.936]is in ArcGIS Pro.

[00:04:19.080]This new product that we’re talking about today

[00:04:20.730]is also a replacement for an older product

[00:04:23.590]we previously had a drillhole extension for ArcMap

[00:04:27.470]called Target for ArcMap

[00:04:29.870]and our customers have long been asking us

[00:04:31.840]to create a similar solution for ArcGIS Pro.

[00:04:34.850]So that’s the product we’re going to be talking about today.

[00:04:39.790]But just a couple other reasons

[00:04:42.030]why we’ve chosen to build on top of ArcGIS Pro,

[00:04:46.170]there’s a number of reasons

[00:04:47.003]why this is an interesting platform for us

[00:04:49.490]it is modern and easy to use.

[00:04:51.160]It’s got a brand new Windows style ribbon interface,

[00:04:55.050]but it’s also easy to build on with new SDKs

[00:04:58.150]and developer tools that actually provides.

[00:05:00.500]It’s identity aware, that it knows who you are.

[00:05:02.750]It’s connected to the internet

[00:05:05.170]or to the Esri geospecial cloud

[00:05:08.350]and ArcGIS is online, which makes it really easy

[00:05:11.130]for sharing data, doing online mapping

[00:05:14.450]and cloud geoprocessing.

[00:05:17.830]Two of the most important reasons for us though

[00:05:19.860]one was it as a MultiMap project space, unlike ArcMap,

[00:05:24.210]which was more of a single map document

[00:05:27.490]you’re able to have multiple different Mac windows

[00:05:30.680]and 3D scenes all over at the same time,

[00:05:33.960]which makes it much easier to deal with things

[00:05:36.700]like multiple plan maps, section maps and 3D views

[00:05:40.330]that are very common in exploration workflows

[00:05:43.200]and the fact that it has the 3D scenes

[00:05:46.570]embedded inside of Pro instead of as a separate

[00:05:50.810]standalone application, the way ArcMap was.

[00:05:53.600]ArcGIS Pro was really a 2D

[00:05:55.410]and 3D mapping environment in one,

[00:05:59.050]which is really quite handy.

[00:06:01.080]So all of these differences together to make ArcGIS Pro

[00:06:04.650]really well suited for mineral exploration workflows

[00:06:07.970]and also an interesting platform to build on.

[00:06:11.540]So let’s have a look at our product

[00:06:13.413]that we’re talking about today, Target for ArcGIS Pro.

[00:06:20.120]So Target fort ArcGIS Pro helps geoscientists in mining

[00:06:23.660]and exploration who are using Esri’s ArcGIS Pro

[00:06:27.620]to display and work with drillhole and subsurface data.

[00:06:31.940]Target for Pro is a geological software extension

[00:06:34.780]that simplifies the importing, viewing

[00:06:37.460]and analysis of drillhole geological data

[00:06:40.410]within ArcGIS Pro.

[00:06:43.100]And it builds on our past successes

[00:06:44.760]of developing geological solutions

[00:06:46.670]for previous Esri products,

[00:06:48.270]which have become widely used and industry standards.

[00:06:55.050]Target for Arc Pro is intended to replace

[00:06:57.650]our previous product Target for ArcMap,

[00:07:00.630]but it is also significantly different.

[00:07:03.320]So our goal here was really to create similar workflows

[00:07:08.570]on the Pro platform, but not a carbon copy,

[00:07:12.060]not an exact replacement of Target for ArcMap.

[00:07:15.830]So to achieve this, we really focused

[00:07:17.850]on these five key areas that you see here

[00:07:20.960]around drillhole data, visualization and display.

[00:07:26.200]These areas are the kind of the cornerstones

[00:07:28.840]of the previous product

[00:07:30.950]but the overall approach we take in Pro

[00:07:32.730]has been very, very different.

[00:07:34.790]We’ve tried really hard to leverage the Esri data formats

[00:07:39.090]and the ArcGIS Pro tools much more extensively.

[00:07:43.350]So just a quick overview of some of these areas

[00:07:46.080]where you’re going to see most of the functionality today,

[00:07:49.540]lines up importing drillhole data

[00:07:52.570]from a variety of different formats and storing

[00:07:55.230]and managing that data in has we refiled your databases

[00:07:59.980]really simplified a drillhole visualization

[00:08:02.800]around displaying holes in 2D and 3D,

[00:08:07.290]really easy shortcuts for working with symbology

[00:08:09.640]and appearance of drillhole data.

[00:08:12.210]Creating cross-sections and creating multiple cross sections

[00:08:15.830]directly in your 3D scenes.

[00:08:18.960]Importing other subsurface data

[00:08:20.610]to add context to your drilling information.

[00:08:22.390]So subsurface measures and slices from voxels,

[00:08:26.660]things like that,

[00:08:29.050]and then finally sharing and collaborating,

[00:08:31.320]which is primarily using some of the Esri’s online workflows

[00:08:35.230]and the built in layout tools

[00:08:36.700]that they have for creating maps.

[00:08:38.940]So this is really the areas that the demo is going to cover

[00:08:42.140]as each of these areas here.

[00:08:46.730]And one last thing

[00:08:47.563]before we get into looking at the software,

[00:08:51.000]you may or may not have known that we had

[00:08:54.718]a previous add in that we’ve had about

[00:08:56.000]for a little over a year now,

[00:08:58.989]Geosoft data in for ArcGIS Pro and that’s been replaced,

[00:09:02.170]but the functionality that was in it

[00:09:04.540]is now a part of Target for ArcGIS Pro.

[00:09:08.465]So there are kind of a mix of some free tools

[00:09:11.440]and some licensed tools in this one product.

[00:09:14.450]So that means even if you don’t have a license for Target,

[00:09:17.230]you still can download it, install it,

[00:09:19.950]and you will have access to the tools that are listed here.

[00:09:23.400]So that’s GSF grid imports access to the data portal

[00:09:28.170]or the geoscience data portal.

[00:09:30.070]And two new ones that we’ve added in this release,

[00:09:32.610]which is the subsurface measure imports for OMF

[00:09:35.870]and Geosoft files and the 3D navigation tools,

[00:09:40.750]as well as the rest of first ones

[00:09:42.510]that were there before as well.

[00:09:44.290]So these are really interoperability type tools,

[00:09:47.350]gives you a way to kind of kick the tires off

[00:09:50.030]some of the tools that are in Target and have a look at it

[00:09:54.598]if you’re not already a licensed user.

[00:09:57.720]So with that, we’re going to jump into the demo

[00:10:02.980]and I’m going to switch over to ArcGIS Pro and or not.


[00:10:11.526]There we go.

[00:10:13.980]Here we go.

[00:10:14.813]All right, so hopefully that she has shown up

[00:10:17.970]on your screens already and what you can see here

[00:10:22.187]and here we are in ArcGIS Pro,

[00:10:25.500]you can see we’ve got a Target toolbar

[00:10:28.000]or ribbon that we’ve added in here,

[00:10:29.510]once we’ve installed Target for ArcGIS Pro,

[00:10:33.207]and there’s about eight different groupings of tools

[00:10:35.610]as we go across.

[00:10:36.443]We’ll just give you a quick overview of the toolbar,

[00:10:38.650]and then we’ll get into some of the actions and functions.

[00:10:42.760]So there’s eight main groupings here

[00:10:43.980]we got imports, add map, symbology, appearance,

[00:10:47.770]subsurface tools, 3D navigation, current data set,

[00:10:50.990]and then your profile and help.

[00:10:53.010]So with the imports, you’ve got things like

[00:10:54.590]Geosft grid imports, subsurface mesh data, drillhole data.

[00:10:58.470]So we’re going to be running a bunch of those.

[00:11:00.430]Add the map is where you would find

[00:11:02.625]your access to the geoscience data portal,

[00:11:05.430]as well as adding drillhole data to the map.

[00:11:08.020]Symbology is around drillholes symbology

[00:11:10.500]and importing saved symbologies

[00:11:13.170]or modifying and managing those.

[00:11:15.730]The rest of your parents tools are for,

[00:11:19.030]changing the rest of reference.

[00:11:21.550]Subsurface tools like creating new drillhole scenes,

[00:11:24.150]3D drillhole scenes,

[00:11:25.700]creating sections modifying and managing sections,

[00:11:28.930]viewing sections.

[00:11:30.100]The 3D navigation tools over here

[00:11:32.050]are kind of quick shortcuts for when you’re in a 3D scene,

[00:11:36.370]that is also a subsurface scene

[00:11:38.410]that can be a little clunky sometimes.

[00:11:40.430]So these are a few of these are mostly just shortcuts

[00:11:42.930]as to how to navigate more easily.

[00:11:47.510]The current dataset,

[00:11:48.680]if you’ve imported more than one drillhole data set.

[00:11:51.960]So from different sources

[00:11:53.220]or representing different time periods,

[00:11:55.480]and you can use this to manage that

[00:11:56.860]as well as data tools there

[00:11:59.590]and then your profile, your secret ID profile,

[00:12:01.870]and access to the help, getting started.

[00:12:05.010]If you want to send us an email

[00:12:06.240]and give us some feedback on the product, we would love it

[00:12:09.120]you can do that right there and check for updates.

[00:12:13.740]One more note and I’m going to say about the toolbar

[00:12:15.920]before we get started.

[00:12:17.190]You’ll notice that some of the tools are kind of grayed out

[00:12:20.530]as I go along here and there’s a couple of reasons

[00:12:22.250]that could happen one would be if you’re not signed in.

[00:12:26.400]So you can see, I am signed in there’s my name,

[00:12:28.300]but if you were not signed in,

[00:12:29.280]you would see all the tools would be grayed out

[00:12:30.983]unless you are signed in and in that case, we should do so

[00:12:33.960]because you have to be signed in.

[00:12:36.380]Another case would be is

[00:12:37.530]if you don’t have a license for Target,

[00:12:39.630]you would see some of them grayed out

[00:12:41.117]and some of them would be lit.

[00:12:42.980]The ones that would be available would be the free tools

[00:12:45.067]and the ones that would be grayed out

[00:12:46.110]would be the license tools.

[00:12:47.810]And the other case that you might see is if you haven’t done

[00:12:51.740]one of the necessary steps.

[00:12:54.080]So if you haven’t done something that is needed to do

[00:12:57.490]to use the tools and it’s not going to let you use that tool

[00:12:59.920]and if you just hover over any of these grayed out tools,

[00:13:02.110]you’re going to see the lower half of the tool tip

[00:13:04.590]says that this is disabled

[00:13:06.170]and it says why in this case, it needs a 3D scene

[00:13:10.460]and the case of this tool over here,

[00:13:12.300]it requires the drillhole data needs to be imported.

[00:13:14.860]So anytime you’re looking at the tools here,

[00:13:17.750]if you see them grayed out, just check that tool tip,

[00:13:20.240]and it’s going to tell you what,

[00:13:22.060]why it’s disabled and what you can do about it, okay?

[00:13:26.444]So I’m going to start by importing some Geosoft grids

[00:13:31.110]and this is one of the free tools

[00:13:34.970]that’s available to everybody.

[00:13:36.770]If you’ve got Geosoft grids and you want to bring those in.

[00:13:40.300]So I’m going to bring in a couple here called regional mag,

[00:13:43.467]and local elevation grid, I’m going to bring those in.

[00:13:47.500]There’s a couple of reasons why you might want to start

[00:13:49.910]by bringing in some background data

[00:13:52.330]this could be mag or gravity,

[00:13:53.800]it could be elevation or geochemistry.

[00:13:55.610]It helps you to set the context of your project area,

[00:13:59.533]but it also helps by setting up

[00:14:00.730]the corner system of your map

[00:14:02.640]and zooming you into the area where you might be working.

[00:14:05.960]So there’s a couple of nice things you can have there

[00:14:09.720]you’ll notice that the colors come in the way they were set

[00:14:12.360]in other Geosoft products and would always this montage,

[00:14:15.250]those colors are honored and I could change those

[00:14:18.100]if I wanted to using those roster appearance tools.

[00:14:24.090]For the…

[00:14:28.935]Let me zoom into the little elevation grade that I’ve got

[00:14:35.180]this is a right around the area where my drillholes are

[00:14:37.670]and I can try that to rest your parents tool there

[00:14:42.710]and I can run a quick hill shade and it’s going to add on

[00:14:46.040]a nice little hill shade layer for me as well.

[00:14:48.870]So I’m going to start by importing some drillhole data

[00:14:51.310]now I’m in the area where those drillholes are

[00:14:53.167]and I got my coordinate system all set up on my map,

[00:14:56.270]and I’m going to go through and import some drillhole data.

[00:14:58.900]So there’s a few different options here

[00:15:00.380]for importing drillhole data

[00:15:03.170]we’ve got our more generic formats or sources on top,

[00:15:06.330]on our more specific formats below.

[00:15:08.300]So I’m starting off with Excel or Access, ODBC connections

[00:15:12.860]and good old textiles, followed by acquire, Annex deposit

[00:15:18.010]and Target projects, that would be if you’re working with,

[00:15:21.960]if you had been working in the previous version of Target,

[00:15:23.970]you could bring that data across fairly easily

[00:15:27.720]but I will start with the Excel and Access.

[00:15:31.650]This is probably one of the more common formats

[00:15:33.670]and a lot of people have.

[00:15:36.515]And because I brought in that data,

[00:15:39.220]I can just grab my special reference from recorded system,

[00:15:41.930]from the map or from the grid that I brought in

[00:15:46.690]and I’m going to go look for my drillholes

[00:15:49.290]in an Excel spreadsheet.

[00:15:52.120]And here I’m going to go through,

[00:15:55.150]I’m going to choose my color data.

[00:15:56.850]I’m going to choose my survey data and then any of my,

[00:16:02.250]from two data tapes and any of my point data types

[00:16:10.560]and I’m going to go ahead and say rent.

[00:16:12.140]So these would be my interval data sets, my point data sets

[00:16:15.670]and I’m going to go ahead and say, run, I’m going for that.

[00:16:19.166]So what you’re going to see here is a little bit of a wizard

[00:16:22.160]this is going to go into check

[00:16:23.450]if all the required fields are present

[00:16:26.010]and in this case, I’m missing one,

[00:16:28.020]I’m missing my total depth and it tells me

[00:16:30.450]down here what’s missing.

[00:16:31.760]So I’m just going to say that’s my end of all my likes value

[00:16:35.667]and I can have a quick look at the other datasets

[00:16:38.180]since the survey, from two datasets, the point datasets,

[00:16:41.570]but they all say ready to import.

[00:16:43.760]So they’re all fine.

[00:16:44.710]So just a quick check there

[00:16:46.230]to see that the required fields are present

[00:16:50.700]and as this is running, I can pop up in the,

[00:16:54.370]a little dialog here.

[00:16:55.203]It’s going to give me a bit of a progress update

[00:16:57.330]as we go along but I can also flip over to the catalog

[00:17:01.190]and I can have a look at what’s going on in the catalog

[00:17:04.310]and this gives me a chance to tell you

[00:17:05.980]what’s happening behind the scenes.

[00:17:07.560]So you can see here, we’ve got a feature dataset

[00:17:11.170]and for anybody who’s maybe not familiar,

[00:17:13.060]a feature dataset is just a collection of feature classes,

[00:17:17.730]feature classes, the more recent equivalent to a shape file.

[00:17:21.340]So you’ll have a point feature class

[00:17:22.830]instead of a point sheet file

[00:17:24.060]and aligned feature glass instead of a line Geosoft

[00:17:27.130]and as you can see here,

[00:17:27.963]we’re starting to populate that drillhole dataset

[00:17:32.160]with things like the colors, the traces, the depth sticks

[00:17:36.530]and if I give us a little refresh,

[00:17:38.820]we should see that it more tables and more future classes

[00:17:41.930]start showing up as the import goes along.

[00:17:45.780]So the things like the traces and the depth sticks

[00:17:49.870]are data sets, they’re being calculated.

[00:17:53.281]So via the D surveying process

[00:17:55.340]where we take the color points

[00:17:56.950]and the depend of the survey points,

[00:17:59.690]we calculate those traces for you

[00:18:01.320]and bring those into the dataset as well

[00:18:05.670]and the same goes for the depth sticks.

[00:18:11.677]And you also see that we’ve got a couple

[00:18:12.810]of relationship classes here,

[00:18:14.130]which kind of helps to tie all the information together

[00:18:19.250]and in that dataset, so that each of those different layers

[00:18:24.350]to know about each other,

[00:18:28.430]and we should be almost done.

[00:18:30.500]You might also see something like this pop up

[00:18:34.610]in a yellow text during that import,

[00:18:37.800]we run some QA, QC checks

[00:18:40.800]and if there are any warnings or discrepancies found,

[00:18:44.150]it’s going to tell you using these kind of yellow text

[00:18:46.330]with a little exclamation point.

[00:18:49.130]In this case, the geochemistry table came in

[00:18:52.820]and there was a hole with data in the geochemistry table

[00:18:56.580]that was not in the color dataset.

[00:18:58.080]So I’d want to go and check that out

[00:19:01.690]in my Excel spreadsheet there and figure that out

[00:19:05.340]but it tells me that it’s succeeded and it finished

[00:19:07.730]and there’s a couple of warnings

[00:19:09.040]that I want to go check out, so that’s fine

[00:19:12.116]and a couple of things have happened

[00:19:13.540]once the import is done you’ll see that my colors and traces

[00:19:18.470]have been added to the active maps that I was looking at

[00:19:21.790]and it’s opened a drillhole datasets

[00:19:24.317]and the panel over here,

[00:19:25.670]which shows me the contents of that dataset.

[00:19:33.020]This drill hole dataset here is,

[00:19:35.950]it’s just kind of a friendlier way of looking at the data

[00:19:38.970]than what we might see in catalog

[00:19:40.670]not everyone is super comfortable with catalog,

[00:19:43.000]and we can’t control the order of how these tables appear

[00:19:48.687]in catalog, but we can kind of pretty add up

[00:19:51.333]a little bit over here.

[00:19:52.640]So we can see the GDB and the data set name,

[00:19:55.620]but we can also kind of order or organize the data

[00:19:58.380]in a way that makes sense and then group from two datasets

[00:20:01.627]and the point datasets together.

[00:20:03.770]The other thing that we can do here is that we’ve actually

[00:20:05.860]allowed you to dig down or explore into each

[00:20:09.790]of the feature classes and to see the attributes

[00:20:13.910]that are in there.

[00:20:14.743]So you can see which attributes are available to you to use

[00:20:18.130]when you’re doing things like displaying the data

[00:20:19.810]and you want to symbolize it.

[00:20:24.020]So this is one way that you could actually

[00:20:26.030]start to add data onto the map.

[00:20:28.390]You could do something like just grabbing copper

[00:20:30.530]by the name of the attribute and dragging it

[00:20:32.890]right onto the maps and all the student enrollment

[00:20:36.840]and turn off my map data there.

[00:20:38.740]So you can see it a little bit better.

[00:20:40.130]So there’s my assays feature class,

[00:20:43.160]but it’s been automatically symbolized

[00:20:45.190]by the copper values.

[00:20:47.565]So that’s kind of a handy way to do things

[00:20:49.350]if you compare to what might happen,

[00:20:51.190]if you were to do the same thing from the catalog.

[00:20:59.850]If I drag and drop that layer,

[00:21:01.800]same assets layer it just comes in looking like a line

[00:21:04.110]and then I have to go through all the steps

[00:21:05.490]of having to symbolize that myself.

[00:21:10.180]So I’m going to just take those guys away, so I can do that.

[00:21:14.060]I could go through the drill hole datasets tab here,

[00:21:17.080]and I could drag and drop individual layers

[00:21:19.890]and add them to my map

[00:21:21.290]but another way of adding data to the map

[00:21:23.820]would be to come up here

[00:21:24.700]and press the add data button for drill hole data

[00:21:27.100]and I can add in any of the different types of data sets,

[00:21:31.570]I can select multiple different values or attributes

[00:21:38.230]and ask to have all of those added to the map at one time.

[00:21:45.380]Oh, just the methodology.


[00:21:56.230]So then we’ve got some depth sticks

[00:21:59.500]I’ve added in a couple of different geochem values

[00:22:02.110]and asset values and all of those

[00:22:05.610]are showing up nicely on my map

[00:22:11.700]there’s a bunch of things that you can do here.

[00:22:14.000]So this ad data tab, but just as kind of sum up,

[00:22:18.030]you can add on a number of different layers all at one time

[00:22:22.640]and any of the layers that you add via this tab here

[00:22:26.630]will get automatically symbolized for you

[00:22:28.610]so you don’t have to go through

[00:22:29.443]all the steps of symbolizing them.

[00:22:30.840]Now you might not love the symbology

[00:22:32.240]that we choose for you by default,

[00:22:33.910]but that’s where the symbology tools come in.

[00:22:36.130]So there’s a number of ways

[00:22:37.110]in which you can import symbology

[00:22:39.100]that these might be something that you’ve predefined

[00:22:42.150]either as a layer file or as a CSV.

[00:22:45.750]You can also do things like modifying the symbology

[00:22:50.722]and I’ll just show that with the copper values here.

[00:22:57.060]These are kind of a bit of a way

[00:23:00.312]of getting at a more of a drill hole standard kind of view.

[00:23:06.770]So you might think of something like a histogram view

[00:23:09.350]that you might see for assay data

[00:23:13.160]just make that a little bigger maybe that’s too many.

[00:23:16.190]There you go.

[00:23:17.130]So you can see making that kind of histogram view

[00:23:19.810]for my copper data.

[00:23:21.830]So these modify really customized symbologies

[00:23:25.670]that are a little tricky to do,

[00:23:27.640]or in some cases impossible to do

[00:23:29.460]with the regular ArcGIS Pro symbology tools

[00:23:33.240]and just to note that,

[00:23:34.500]because all this data’s being stored in future classes,

[00:23:38.890]you can just start clicking on any of those bars

[00:23:41.880]it’s going to tell you what the drill hole is,

[00:23:44.030]It’s going to tell you the from into it will go

[00:23:46.240]and the attribute values that are associated there.

[00:23:56.757]A couple of other things you can do here, if you want to,

[00:23:59.320]you can define or set up a default symbologies

[00:24:03.290]and I’m going to show an example of that little later on

[00:24:07.330]and another example of some of those,

[00:24:09.040]some of the other modified tools that you can use as well.

[00:24:13.290]And what that means is that when you’ve preset

[00:24:16.890]your own defaults,

[00:24:18.050]when you do add drill hole data to the maps,

[00:24:21.080]they’re going to come in using those defaults

[00:24:24.560]that you’ve specified instead of the ones

[00:24:26.250]that we’ve specified, okay?

[00:24:33.260]I’m going to go on in,

[00:24:34.640]we’re going to make a drill hole scene

[00:24:36.660]and you might notice that I’m moving

[00:24:38.720]in a general left to right fashion across the ribbon here.

[00:24:43.680]Making this little drill hole scene

[00:24:44.900]really just does a couple of things for you,

[00:24:47.590]it makes a local scene, which you can tell,

[00:24:50.070]because it’s using that whole buildings icon.

[00:24:53.200]It adds the drill hole colors

[00:24:55.310]and the drill traces traces for you

[00:24:56.930]and it kind of orients you so that you’re looking at it

[00:24:58.770]from a little bit under the ground.

[00:25:01.050]This is really the same as doing something like this,

[00:25:03.290]where you’d go here and say, add a new local scene

[00:25:06.050]and then add some drill hole data to it

[00:25:09.660]and also we run this little configure guy,

[00:25:11.460]which just sets a couple of the settings

[00:25:13.070]to make it a little easier to view the drill holes.

[00:25:17.590]So they’re got my drill holes in 3D, which is great.

[00:25:23.170]The one thing is that I’m kind of stuck

[00:25:27.657]in this weird problem where I’ve got these great base maps

[00:25:35.290]that are just one of the cool things that I just brought

[00:25:37.750]but he’s great base maps, I can use, satellite imagery

[00:25:42.660]or I can use typography or terrain,

[00:25:46.150]and it’ll just grab those off the internet

[00:25:48.440]and load them for me and that’s super sweet, but they just,

[00:25:50.980]they kind of go off into the horizon forever.

[00:25:53.690]So it makes it really hard for me to see my drill holes

[00:25:57.610]underneath the surface of the earth right.

[00:26:00.500]So there’s a couple of things that we’ve done over here

[00:26:02.530]in the 3D navigation grouping,

[00:26:06.130]where we’ve added a couple of tools to help you

[00:26:09.090]work a little bit easier in those 3D scenes.

[00:26:14.830]The first one here that I’m running is the clip scene

[00:26:18.920]to drill hole extents.

[00:26:22.130]So I’m just going to Zoom in a little view from the top.

[00:26:28.350]So what I’ve got now is I’ve actually clipped

[00:26:30.710]the extent of my 3D scene,

[00:26:31.970]so that they’re just a little bit bigger

[00:26:33.760]than my drill holes and that’s kind of handy.

[00:26:39.100]If you wanted to make it a little bit of a bigger area,

[00:26:41.270]you can use the other option here,

[00:26:42.630]which is called draw clip area,

[00:26:44.710]and you can draw your own box

[00:26:46.480]and that’ll change the scene clipping to be to that area

[00:26:50.643]that you just drew.

[00:26:54.880]And you might’ve noticed that I use

[00:26:59.560]one of these view from options while I was moving around.

[00:27:03.070]These are basically just facial bookmarks

[00:27:06.430]that you can use to reorient the view

[00:27:09.860]or to change the view so that you’re viewing it from

[00:27:13.820]a different angle or a different perspective.

[00:27:17.330]If you find that the changes in scene

[00:27:21.670]are a little bit too jumpy,

[00:27:23.090]you can turn on the animated transitions,

[00:27:25.830]and this’ll kind of swing you around

[00:27:27.590]as you do those view changes, which some people like,

[00:27:31.320]’cause it gives them a bit more context

[00:27:32.780]as to where they are looking now,

[00:27:35.240]as opposed to where they were looking before

[00:27:37.630]some people don’t in which case we can turn it off.

[00:27:43.926]I think that’s all I’m going say about the 3D NAB stuff

[00:27:46.100]as can handle tools in there.

[00:27:50.954]I’m going to throw on a couple,

[00:27:52.220]maybe one or two more pieces of data throw in my,

[00:27:56.218]some of my assays and we can see

[00:27:58.870]what we’re working with here in 3D scene.

[00:28:01.220]So again, that ad data tool just lets you

[00:28:03.900]quickly add some of the attributes

[00:28:08.041]or the income of the data values onto the map.

[00:28:12.390]So that you can see what’s going on

[00:28:17.160]and there’s no copper values just trying to show up

[00:28:21.370]and I’m going to start by we’ll start by

[00:28:25.090]getting into creating some sections and have a look at that.

[00:28:29.410]So I’m going to go to our create section tool

[00:28:33.150]and I will start by drawing a section

[00:28:36.920]on the current map.

[00:28:39.240]I just start by first drawing a line

[00:28:42.510]and dragging that out to make a little box

[00:28:45.200]and we’ll turn off my base map

[00:28:46.340]so you can see a little bit easier

[00:28:49.070]and what you see is we actually just have a kind of a box

[00:28:51.700]defined in the 3D scene

[00:28:56.950]and if I want to, I can click the scene extents there

[00:29:02.180]to see which holes are inside that section

[00:29:05.560]and which holes are outside that section.

[00:29:10.400]I can move that section around if I want

[00:29:13.860]or I can also just save it as it is.

[00:29:15.407]I’m going to go through this process one or two more times,

[00:29:17.560]I’ll show you a few things about creating sections.

[00:29:22.490]So here we’re going to go through it again.

[00:29:23.750]It flips me around to the top

[00:29:25.620]and draw another section location there.

[00:29:30.590]Sometimes I get a box that’s a little bit different

[00:29:32.410]than what I thought I was going to get

[00:29:33.640]and there is a couple of different modes here

[00:29:36.620]in ArcGIS Pro there’s a thing called perspective

[00:29:39.600]and I think a parallel

[00:29:41.320]and if you use parallel while you’re doing this sections,

[00:29:45.640]you’re much more likely to get more of what you expected

[00:29:51.680]when you drove the box.

[00:29:52.970]So we put a little shortcut button right here

[00:29:54.800]that lets you change between parallel perspective

[00:29:57.750]and there’s some other words for that and other stuff

[00:29:59.990]for those two different units, but they’re pretty common.

[00:30:03.140]So here we’ve got another section and I can adjust.

[00:30:06.670]I can adjust things like the thickness

[00:30:11.450]and the size of that box will change.

[00:30:14.610]I could adjust the length and get a little bit longer.

[00:30:19.060]I can adjust the height.

[00:30:20.150]I can also move it around if I wanted to in the direction

[00:30:24.500]that is perpendicular to the section

[00:30:29.120]or I could adjust the Eastern

[00:30:31.190]and Northern center point of that if I wanted to,

[00:30:35.630]and I’ll go ahead and save back as well.

[00:30:38.450]Now I’m going to make one more,

[00:30:41.510]maybe one more like a long section and,

[00:30:52.939]play around to the assay till you see that changes

[00:30:56.340]the orientation of the section line.

[00:30:59.700]So each of those parameters can be adjusted dynamically

[00:31:02.410]or by using the values and there’s also an option in here

[00:31:07.370]for creating multiple sections.

[00:31:12.110]So if I do one last one here and I draw a nice long section

[00:31:17.550]at one end, I should be able to create

[00:31:25.520]a set of offset sections and see those

[00:31:28.640]as they would space out down the dataset

[00:31:37.130]or across the whole project.

[00:31:40.040]So something like that.

[00:31:41.667]And you can see if I get my space and just right,

[00:31:43.710]I’ll be able to hit each of those groupings like that.

[00:31:49.830]Let me say that going the name like series

[00:31:54.320]and say that and I’ll get a set of five sections

[00:31:57.780]that run across that whole project.

[00:32:01.570]Now you might notice that now I’ve got

[00:32:02.730]a whole bunch of sections

[00:32:03.770]and I can each time that I’ve saved one,

[00:32:05.420]I land here in the manage tab and I can see all the sections

[00:32:08.503]that I have and I can turn them on and turn them off.

[00:32:11.640]If I don’t have them to like one, I can delete it

[00:32:18.120]and if I want to rename them, I can do that too.

[00:32:22.900]So I call this one long section and that’d be fine.

[00:32:28.836]So there’s a bunch of different things you can do in here

[00:32:30.770]with the manage sections tab.

[00:32:33.650]You might also want to change the order

[00:32:35.100]that they’re sorted in directionally,

[00:32:37.210]often numerical creation

[00:32:39.120]and the reason why you weren’t going to change that

[00:32:40.633]is when we start to get into viewing sections,

[00:32:44.280]the order becomes important.

[00:32:47.260]So one of the heroes I’ve just launched the section view,

[00:32:49.750]which keeps me in my dribble scene, that same 3D scene,

[00:32:53.620]but it brings up an extra control panel

[00:32:56.630]that lets me view each of those sections that I’ve created.

[00:33:01.100]So with this little dropdown here,

[00:33:02.790]I can see each of those sections

[00:33:04.940]and I can flip from one section to the next

[00:33:09.240]and investigate all the way through that drill hole project,

[00:33:15.800]by viewing those different sections.

[00:33:18.900]I can flip from the front to the back

[00:33:21.210]and see it from the top and the bottom, if I want to,

[00:33:24.610]and there’s a number of other little handy things

[00:33:26.750]you can do in here.

[00:33:28.140]This same section view also works in the layout tools.

[00:33:36.190]So I’m going to show that in the next little example,

[00:33:41.779]when you want to actually make something

[00:33:42.970]that you can print out.

[00:33:45.580]So that’s the way you can view sections

[00:33:48.050]and whatever you’ve got,

[00:33:49.260]whatever you’ve got displayed in your contents of your scene

[00:33:53.590]is what you’re going to see showing up on that section.

[00:34:02.240]Yeah, I’m going to flip to a project

[00:34:03.960]that I’ve got already pre-made

[00:34:06.530]that’s got some slightly prettier examples of things in it

[00:34:10.740]and I’m going to show you a few,

[00:34:13.530]just a few examples of things

[00:34:14.910]that would have taken me slightly longer

[00:34:18.630]to whip up on the floor.

[00:34:24.040]As it loads here I’ll give you an idea of some of the things

[00:34:28.440]we’re going to look at there’s a bunch of different

[00:34:31.600]symbology things that you can do.

[00:34:35.290]So I wanted to kind of run through those quickly

[00:34:37.050]so you get a sense of what they are.

[00:34:39.820]I wanted to show that you can import section oriented grids

[00:34:44.720]and the sub-service mesh status,

[00:34:47.050]I’m going to show all those things

[00:34:48.000]and then we’ll have a look at how that works

[00:34:49.890]with that section viewer that we were just looking at

[00:34:53.630]’cause I think that’ll be hopefully interesting to you guys.

[00:34:58.820]So to start off with, we’re just going to look at

[00:35:03.264]the plan B here the drill holes.

[00:35:04.980]You’ll notice here, I’ve got a couple of different maps,

[00:35:07.150]a little inset maps, some geophysics,

[00:35:10.010]and using that hill shade some geology over here

[00:35:13.277]and those will get used on the layout

[00:35:14.830]I’m going to show you a couple of seconds

[00:35:17.370]and just as a reminder, in case I had forgotten

[00:35:19.930]to show it the histogram bar plot kind of appearance

[00:35:23.290]that you can do for drill holes in plan view is quite handy

[00:35:29.690]and the fact that you can also do those

[00:35:32.450]using two different values.

[00:35:33.990]So here on this one, you’ll see that they’re are colored

[00:35:37.490]by in this case zinc but sized by copper.

[00:35:40.620]So you’ll see something like there

[00:35:42.510]where you got a high copper value, but a lower zinc value

[00:35:45.440]also that you’re going to offset the lithology

[00:35:48.200]down the side of the drill hole trees

[00:35:50.810]and to get it out of the way a little bit.

[00:35:53.420]And flipping over into the 3D scene

[00:35:56.330]there’s the lithology which I mistakenly forgot to import

[00:35:59.240]on the first go around, along with the depth sticks

[00:36:02.290]in case I didn’t show those

[00:36:03.300]so those are the sort of depth ticks

[00:36:04.670]that we calculate for you.

[00:36:06.590]So lithology just as tubes and that’s one of the things

[00:36:13.560]that is quite useful with the symbology tools,

[00:36:16.370]is that you might want to import your rock codes

[00:36:20.860]and then save that as a part of your project.

[00:36:23.280]So that’s how I was able to get those colors on there

[00:36:26.510]that’s quite a handy tool for the symbology.

[00:36:30.710]The other thing I’m going to show over here

[00:36:32.260]is kind of a view of what you might call proportional disks,

[00:36:40.010]I guess, so proportional sized asset values.

[00:36:43.400]So in this case we’re looking at copper values

[00:36:45.660]where the higher values have been made to be larger

[00:36:50.100]than the rest of the assay values.

[00:36:52.440]So that’s a pretty common, I would say,

[00:36:54.090]pretty common drill hole symbology

[00:36:57.281]and a lot of these things you can create

[00:37:00.210]using this modified symbology tool here.

[00:37:03.220]And the last one here that I’ll show

[00:37:04.830]that’s a symbology related item

[00:37:07.010]is oriented disks for structural data.

[00:37:11.390]So you can see here, I’ve got some structural data

[00:37:14.710]that was alpha beta and if I needed to convert

[00:37:19.180]alpha betas into dip and deep end direction,

[00:37:21.340]I can use this tool over here to do so,

[00:37:23.880]and that I can plot those oops,

[00:37:28.640]can plot those guys as a kind of oriented discs

[00:37:31.210]is what we call them in here

[00:37:33.020]and you can have them color coded by the type of structure

[00:37:35.070]are showing oriented based on the different

[00:37:37.590]dip direction values.

[00:37:39.520]So just trying to show a couple

[00:37:40.500]of different symbology options

[00:37:41.730]that would have taken me a few too many minutes

[00:37:43.790]to create them on plot.

[00:37:46.940]The next thing I’m going to show here is one of the ways

[00:37:50.520]that you can visualize block model data or voxel data.

[00:37:57.128]Here it goes, I do want it transfer it.

[00:38:03.890]So here’s a couple of slices that came out of a voxel.

[00:38:08.140]Right now ArcGIS Pro doesn’t have a file format

[00:38:12.270]that is something that can store voxel or block mental data

[00:38:17.027]and they don’t have something in the file geodatabase

[00:38:19.250]a future class or anything like that

[00:38:20.550]to store this type of data

[00:38:22.130]but what we can do is we can extract out slices

[00:38:26.040]and we can do that in to your soft or target or the viewers

[00:38:29.550]and we can bring those slices directly in,

[00:38:32.630]and that’s just using this one of the free tools,

[00:38:34.690]the geoseparate tool,

[00:38:36.920]if it’s a section it’ll pop into 3D in its proper spot

[00:38:41.020]and its correct location and it just shows up like that.

[00:38:45.840]We’re working on trying to find a nicer solution

[00:38:49.250]to this right now.

[00:38:51.970]The other thing of data that you might have

[00:38:53.310]that you might want to bring in is something like

[00:38:55.490]one of these subsurface meshes.

[00:38:56.810]So we’ve got the Geosfot subsurface file

[00:38:58.900]and we’ve got the OMF file which is a open mining format.

[00:39:02.540]And that’s one that you can export straight out of leapfrog,

[00:39:05.730]that OMF file and what that’s going to bring in for you

[00:39:09.910]is usually something that looks like a,

[00:39:12.120]so that looks like this right here,

[00:39:14.550]which is commonly used for geological models or wire frames,

[00:39:21.200]or it could even be great shells or ISO surfaces

[00:39:25.811]and that’s the way that you can bring that data in.

[00:39:28.520]These will come in as a multi-pack feature class

[00:39:33.382]and then you can use those as well

[00:39:34.730]and any tool that would take a multi-pack

[00:39:37.640]to reach your goals.

[00:39:40.558]So what I’m going to do now

[00:39:41.391]is I’m just going to pop a few layers on

[00:39:44.450]and I’ll go back to that section view

[00:39:49.090]and have a look at how that looks and section view now.

[00:39:53.640]So you can see with some of those,

[00:39:57.770]the drill hole lithology turned on

[00:39:59.510]and that geological model we’re getting a slice

[00:40:02.410]through that as well and in cases where

[00:40:06.330]we had that box we’ll slice,

[00:40:08.620]you’ll see that sharp as part of the background as well

[00:40:11.860]and if I wanted to change the datasets

[00:40:15.680]that are being displayed in the section,

[00:40:18.960]I just change what is turned on and turned off

[00:40:21.340]in the contents paint over here.

[00:40:25.230]So there’s a section with a slice of a geological model

[00:40:27.830]and some proportionally sized asset values.

[00:40:33.290]The last thing that I wanted to show,

[00:40:37.510]last thing I want to show here

[00:40:38.590]is really what you can do

[00:40:41.000]with the layout views in ArcGIS Pro.

[00:40:43.850]So the layout tools are something that comes standard

[00:40:46.920]as part of Pro and it’s really how you would build

[00:40:49.968]a large map or a map that you might print out

[00:40:52.960]or send as a PDF, I’m just going to hold up this

[00:40:57.510]to make it look a little bit bigger.

[00:41:00.640]And so here’s a layer of that same kind of project area

[00:41:03.790]with a plan view and my little inset maps

[00:41:06.150]and a bit of a detail on a couple of interesting dribbles

[00:41:08.610]and then my section view

[00:41:10.670]that I was just looking at right there

[00:41:13.250]and all this stuff is built just using the new layout tools

[00:41:18.770]in ArcGIS Pro so it could go to the the layout tab

[00:41:22.630]and using all those tabs there

[00:41:24.450]and all the tools on that layer tab there.

[00:41:27.800]And I’ll show you what that looks like when the PDF it

[00:41:33.460]give you a sense of what that might look like

[00:41:36.970]if you were to try and print it out.

[00:41:47.100]So this is really these layers would be

[00:41:49.260]how you would go ahead and build any of your map views,

[00:41:52.590]sharing that data is just a slightly different version

[00:41:55.047]that I did the other day

[00:41:56.590]and sharing that data for either for print

[00:41:59.000]or for publication, or as a poster at conference

[00:42:01.890]or things like that and that’s what that layout view

[00:42:08.260]would look like in a PDF.

[00:42:11.080]Another really cool way that you can share data

[00:42:13.470]with ArcGIS Pro is to share it as a website,

[00:42:17.890]and this is going to take something like either a 2D map

[00:42:20.706]that you’ve got, or a 3D map, 3D scene

[00:42:23.367]and it’s going to take you up to ArcGIS online

[00:42:32.620]and opening up that web scene here.

[00:42:36.920]And just see the same data set and a what of your,

[00:42:44.150]and those, what would they go?


[00:42:51.360]There you are.

[00:42:54.010]As you can see the same drills

[00:42:55.730]and that same geological model that we imported

[00:43:00.850]and even the slice of the box is in there as well,

[00:43:08.810]I do think.

[00:43:09.690]So all that data that was in that 3D scene

[00:43:12.759]was just a couple of clicks and a few minutes is up

[00:43:14.880]in a web browser that you can then share

[00:43:18.200]with anyone that you want to.


[00:43:24.400]I think with that, we will jump back to the slides

[00:43:30.130]and just get wrapped up.

[00:43:36.030]And so just a bit of a, I guess, more of a summary here,

[00:43:40.150]some of the things that we showed today, importing viewing,

[00:43:45.520]analyzing all your drill holes in ArcGIS Pro.

[00:43:49.090]Till now there’s been no way really

[00:43:50.820]to work with drill hole data and ArcGIS Pro.

[00:43:55.010]So that’s the thing right there.

[00:43:58.450]And the theories that we showed

[00:43:59.340]they’re really about importing,

[00:44:01.420]displaying those drill holes in 2D and 3D

[00:44:04.000]and creating cross sections and multiple cross sections,

[00:44:08.250]bringing in other datasets,

[00:44:10.020]whether they were subsurface or slices

[00:44:13.320]and then some of those sharing and collaborating workflows

[00:44:16.210]with the online and lit.

[00:44:18.450]The other thing to say here is,

[00:44:19.760]I guess we tried really hard

[00:44:21.380]to build this as an integrated, as a solution

[00:44:25.530]and we feel like we’ve achieved on that.

[00:44:31.420]It’s not always easy to take a workflow

[00:44:33.340]and try to bring it into something

[00:44:34.830]that it wasn’t exactly designed to do.

[00:44:37.220]So that’s where we really tried to focus

[00:44:40.450]and you are able to use all those ArcGIS Pro tools

[00:44:43.390]if you want to, you can just,

[00:44:45.100]you can grab some of those geo processing tools,

[00:44:47.150]of which there are literally hundreds

[00:44:49.110]and use them on your drill hole data, which is really handy.

[00:44:54.640]And to give you an idea of where we’re going,

[00:44:57.310]we’re still working on this,

[00:44:58.310]obviously there’s a lot of things that we need to do,

[00:45:01.110]but some of the top priorities

[00:45:02.150]we’re looking at for next year

[00:45:05.150]are things like drill hole planning,

[00:45:08.400]basic geological modeling,

[00:45:09.780]like wire framing drawing interpretations on sections

[00:45:12.807]and drawing those in 3D,

[00:45:15.190]slicing up those voxels and a bit of an easier way,

[00:45:17.230]or bringing the voxels in entirely

[00:45:19.010]and visualizing those in ArcGIS Pro.

[00:45:22.120]And we want to hear your ideas

[00:45:24.210]we want to hear what you guys think are the top priorities,

[00:45:27.500]working with drill hole data.

[00:45:28.860]So please reach out to us and let us know

[00:45:31.470]if you have a passionate ideas

[00:45:33.370]about what should go into ArcGIS Pro

[00:45:35.230]for working with troubles.

[00:45:38.060]So we’ll take a break and get some questions.

[00:45:41.820]If you haven’t had a chance you can start typing.

[00:45:45.230]We’ll pick a few to answer

[00:45:47.690]and I’ve got a few common questions that have come up here.

[00:45:51.840]So we’ll pop that open while I have a chance

[00:45:54.160]to kind of look through,

[00:45:58.490]these are some of the things that have come in

[00:45:59.770]in the last week or so,

[00:46:03.170]and some of the things that people have asked us,

[00:46:05.800]so Target ArcGIS Pro does require

[00:46:10.850]version 24 of ArcPro or higher,

[00:46:14.020]but it does work with any licensed level.

[00:46:16.510]So you might have a basic standard

[00:46:17.970]or advanced license for Pro and it works with all of those.

[00:46:23.430]The other thing to know is that you do require a secret ID

[00:46:26.490]if you don’t already have one,

[00:46:27.670]you’ll need that to download and install

[00:46:29.580]and to use the tools.

[00:46:30.830]You don’t need to be online,

[00:46:32.070]but you do need to be signed in.

[00:46:34.500]If you already have an existing subscription

[00:46:37.370]for Target for ArcMap, then you already have a license

[00:46:38.845]and you can get started right now.

[00:46:42.940]If you have any questions about that,

[00:46:43.940]you can shoot us an email

[00:46:45.810]and if you’re not currently a subscriber,

[00:46:48.370]there are free tools in there that you can try out

[00:46:51.150]and you can still have a go at it, okay?

[00:46:56.880]So there’s not a ton of questions I think

[00:46:58.890]that have come in so far.

[00:47:00.410]Lisa, do you have any ones that you can see?

[00:47:04.090]<v Lisa>Yeah, I have a couple here</v>

[00:47:07.370]and we encourage anyone on the line

[00:47:09.420]to please put your questions in that box,

[00:47:10.920]so we can address those.

[00:47:13.200]The first one here is around data.

[00:47:14.620]So when the source data has changed,

[00:47:17.250]will I have to import the data all over again?

[00:47:19.310]<v Sara>That’s a great question.</v>

[00:47:21.450]Yeah, no.

[00:47:22.283]So obviously when you do go through that import process,

[00:47:25.030]there’s a couple of steps

[00:47:26.470]and you don’t want to go through those again.

[00:47:28.340]So, but drill hole data does change very frequently,

[00:47:32.810]almost daily in some cases

[00:47:34.620]and there is a refresh option in the data tools section

[00:47:39.030]where you just simply a one button press,

[00:47:41.610]and it’s going to refresh from the source

[00:47:43.700]that you used last time and using all the settings

[00:47:46.470]that you used last time to do the imports

[00:47:48.720]and we’ll just redo that import for you

[00:47:50.250]and all your data will be up to date

[00:47:52.370]in just a couple of minutes.

[00:47:53.980]Good question.

[00:47:55.250]<v Lisa>Cool, yeah, I have a couple more here</v>

[00:47:56.780]and I guess we can sort of sifting through them.

[00:47:59.860]The next one is a symbology question.

[00:48:01.840]It seems so someone has asked

[00:48:04.040]if they can create custom styles

[00:48:06.330]and then share those with their coworkers or their teams.

[00:48:09.460]<v Sara>Yeah, absolutely.</v>

[00:48:11.690]So the symbology tools from,

[00:48:14.570]in that symbology drill hole symbology section,

[00:48:17.490]you can create your own, you can import other people’s

[00:48:21.610]and you can share those either via a layer file

[00:48:24.630]or via the geo database itself

[00:48:27.350]and you can share those across your organization

[00:48:29.440]or with other users.

[00:48:30.910]Yeah, absolutely you can share them for sure.

[00:48:33.440]<v Lisa>Okay, I’ve got one more</v>

[00:48:35.088]and so it’s specific to sections.

[00:48:36.660]So is it possible to create stacked section views?

[00:48:40.270]<v Sara>Yeah, that would all be in the layouts.</v>

[00:48:42.960]So in the layout tools,

[00:48:44.870]you can add multiple different map frames or 3D frames,

[00:48:49.130]and you would just have to create different multiple frames

[00:48:55.130]of each of the sections that you want to see

[00:48:57.137]and it should be pretty easy to get a stack section

[00:48:58.900]to be that way.

[00:49:00.870]<v Lisa>Great.</v>

[00:49:02.560]I think we have a couple of questions here

[00:49:04.860]that we can maybe address after today’s event.

[00:49:08.870]I want to thank everybody for attending today’s session,

[00:49:11.320]and don’t forget that we will make the recording available

[00:49:13.190]and as I said, we can address any questions

[00:49:14.710]that you want to shoot over.

[00:49:16.840]I see that Sara has included contact information here

[00:49:19.670]for pricing and upgrade inquiries,

[00:49:21.000]as well as getting started link to learn more.

[00:49:24.120]<v Sara>Yeah, if you want to take a screen capture that,</v>

[00:49:26.850]those two links will help you get some more information

[00:49:30.380]and feel free to reach out.

[00:49:33.400]<v Lisa>Alright, this is great.</v>

[00:49:34.300]Thanks Sara and thanks everyone for joining.

[00:49:36.940]<v Sara>Yeah, thanks everybody for coming.</v>

[00:49:38.700]<v Lisa>Okay thanks.</v>
