The 9.8 release of Oasis montaj, Target, and Target for ArcMap introduces support for 2.5D TDEM inversions,

allowing you to gain new 3D insights and interpretations from TDEM data. You can also experience significant performance improvements when viewing 3D data; usability improvements to enhance and modernise the user experience; and the first phase of even more seamless Seequent workflows. Target for ArcGIS Pro 2.1 introduces new workflows that allow you to increase drillhole planning efficiency.

VOXI 2.5D Time Domain EM is under development and not available for purchase.

<v Instructor>Hi, my name is Jeff</v>

and in this video,

I will discuss some of the new features

in the May 2020 Geosoft product release.

This update continues to strengthen the geophysical

and geoscience portfolio,

through new industry leading features.

The 9.8 release

of Oasis montaj, Target and Target for ArcMap

includes significant performance improvements

when viewing 3D data.

We also introduce support

for 2.5D time domain EM inversions,

allowing you to gain 3D insights and interpretations

from time domain EM data.

We’ve also included improvements

to enhance and modernize your experience,

plus a sneak preview of integration with Seequent Central,

to provide seamless workflows with Leapfrog.

Now let’s take a closer look at what’s new in this release.

One of the first enhancements

you will notice with the update

is that we’ve improved and modernized

the user interface of Oasis montaj and Target.

This includes a main menu cleanup

with the removal of the edit and settings menu,

with the functionality move to more appropriate locations.

We have also updated the application style

and window colors to be more contemporary.

This also includes enhancements to the usability

of the Geosoft database window.

The menus have also been reorganized

in a more logical manner,

working from importing and visualizing your data,

to modeling your data

as you move from left to right across the menu bar.

Now I would like to mention 3D views.

Our team has made significant performance improvements

to 3D views inside of Oasis montaj and Target.

We now have near instantaneous mouse response,

regardless of the number of objects that are in the 3D view.

This means you can add many voxels, grids, sections,

ISO surfaces and drillholes

and not worry about performance issues.

Depending on your computer setup,

you should see speed improvements of 10 to 17 times faster.

Oasis montaj, Target,

the Geosoft Viewer, VOXI and GM-SYS 3D

all benefit from this improvement.

And now for Seequent Central.

In this release,

we are providing a sneak peek of the integration

of Oasis montaj and Target with Central.

This is an important step,

in connecting the Geosoft product suite,

to the larger Seequent ecosystem.

With this new functionality,

you can now export grids and voxels to Seequent Central.

By right clicking and uploading your grid or voxel

to the central server of your choice.

Alternatively, you can use the updated data services menu

to upload multiple sets of grids or voxels

to the central server.

Central is a model management solution,

which helps you visualize track and integrate and manage

your geoscience data

from a centralized audible environment.

Now with a couple of clicks,

your data can be securely uploaded and saved to the Cloud.

For those working in Leapfrog,

you can simply download and open these grids

directly from Central into your project.

We’re also excited,

to announce the release

of VOXI 2.5D time domain modeling.

The benefit of the 2.5D algorithm

includes better recovery of dipping structures

and compact bodies,

providing a more robust conductivity model.

This is a model that’s free

from one dimensional inversion artifacts.

Currently the algorithm is accessible

through an early adopter program.

So please contact us to learn how to participate

and stay tuned for the full release.

We’re also pleased to announce

our VOXI self-service trial.

We have automated the trial process

so if you’re interested

to test out VOXI Earth Modeling for yourself,

please check this out.

This is available through the VOXI store,

starting on May 29th.

For GM-SYS, our team has also added

some great new functionality to GM-SYS profile.

You can now easily display a geo-referenced grid or image

through a new workflow,

allowing the integration of raster data and GM-SYS profile.

This means you can display gridded data

in plan or section,

and display interpretations

from Leapfrog, Seismic or empty data

geo-referenced right in your GM-SYS project.

Now with GM-SYS profile,

we support a new model document.

The new model documents supports easy backups

and sharing of your models.

You also reduce the risk of losing your data.

Now instead of having to manually search

and archive all of your project files,

you can simply save the model

and all of the relevant files

will be archived into a single file.

And now for UX-Analyze.

With this release,

UX-Analyze now it makes full use

of the HDF version zero file format.

This is a great enhancement

for users working with EM sensor data,

including the metadata

describing the sensor’s configuration.

This is a huge time saver

and reduces the need for configuration files

when you’re in the field.

Any changes to the sensor’s parameters

will be used by UX-Analyze

in subsequent data processing.

UX-Analyze now supports data captured,

as part of a dynamic survey using the MPV sensor.

The Man-Portable Vector,

is one of the most popular sensors

for advanced geophysical classification

and is now supported by UX-Analyze inside of Oasis montaj.

And now for Target for RJS Pro, version 2.1,

With the release of Target for RJS Pro 2.1,

we are pleased to introduce

a new drillhole planning workflow.

This new feature allows you to plan new drillholes

in ArcGIS Pro.

Now you can communicate drilling priorities to your team

and advanced exploration projects to discovery.

We now also have the ability to get elevation values

from topographic rasters.

Now if your drillhole collars

do not match your typography,

you can simply replace

or correct collar information.

You may also examine errors

and interrogate elevation values

at other collar locations.
