"Our Alberta Geological Survey gravity and magnetic atlas covers a large part of the Alberta Basin. It showcases the superb Geosoft map-making capabilities and proven data-processing methodologies. It’s amazing how things come full circle sometimes. My studies of basement fault and fracture networks successfully combine some half-forgotten but fundamental geological ideas from the 1950s with modern Geosoft technology."

|A new digitization workflow for creating geological interpretations||
A new streamlined workflow makes it easy to digitize geological interpretations on section and plan maps. Polygon features can be used to represent individual rock units, alteration or mineralization zones, while polyline features can be used to draw faults or contact surfaces.
A single geostring file can contain a number of interpretations stored as geological features. Using a single geostring file to store all the interpretations for a drillhole project makes it easy to manage your interpretations and share them with others.
|Improved snapping for new digitization workflow||
When digitizing, you can now snap to the true X, Y, Z drillhole data locations, or to the points that are projected on the section plane. This provides you with more flexibility and control when digitizing interpretations, which leads to more realistic and accurate interpretations.Watch the video
|Build wireframes from section interpretations||
Geosoft provides an easy-to-use wireframing interface that enables you to build 3D subsurface geological models by joining section and plan map interpretations stored in Geosoft string files. Simply click on the features you want to include and a wireframe model is created from the shapes. Polygon features form closed surfaces or bodies and polyline features create open surfaces. Flat, conical or rounded ends can be used to close the open ends of a wireframed polygon feature.
After saving the wireframe to a Geosoft surface (geosurface) file, the total surface area is reported for open surfaces and total volume is reported for closed bodies. Closed geosurfaces can be used in voxel math expressions to clip voxels or to create constraints to use in inversions. Collaborate on 3D modelling projects by sharing the interpretations as Geosoft string files or the wireframing results as Geosoft geosurface files.Watch the video
|Voxel math expressions using closed 3D geosurfaces||
You can now use closed 3D surfaces from wireframing as variables in voxel math expressions, enabling you to clip voxels to the inner or outer edges of a 3D surface.
There are a number of ways you can use this functionality. For example, you can clip voxels to a closed surface to calculate an average grade within a specific rock unit or you can assign a constant value to the voxel cells inside or outside the closed surface, which makes it much easier to create constraints for VOXI.Watch the video

Internet Connection: To use VOXI, we recommend a medium to high-speed internet connection (512Kbps upload and 1Mbps download or higher). The faster your internet connection, the faster you will be able to upload your modelling information to the VOXI cloud servers and download your results.
Internet Browser: To use the internet capabilities in Oasis montaj or Target, you will need to install Internet Explorer 8.0 or later. This does not mean that you have to have Internet Explorer as your default browser; Oasis montaj and Target just use the internet connection technology supplied in IE8.
The following software prerequisites are required and will be downloaded and installed if not present:
• Microsoft .NET 4
• ESRI ArcEngine 10.2
