Target is geology software for visualising, analysing and managing your drilling projects. With Target you can sharpen your understanding of underlying subsurface geology, and verify assumptions, to increase the value of your drilling investment, and improve prospecting and discovery results. Target is also available as an extension for ArcGIS.
Target provides a complete solution for exploration geology, enabling you to visualise and manage drilling projects for mineral exploration and other subsurface investigations. Using Target you can effectively visualise thousands of drillholes, and conduct integrated analysis of surface and subsurface geochemistry, geophysics, and geology data within a single, interactive 3D environment.
With Target, you can:
View the Target Video to explore what it can do for you.
||Process and map large volumes of mineral exploration data, combining multiple datasets with different coordinate systems.|
||Analyse and interrogate your drillhole data in real time by dynamically linked sections, plans, 3D, maps and database views.|
||Zoom, pan, rotate, slice and interact with 3D views of drillholes and geophysical models, including Surpac STR or DTM and Datamine wireframe models.|
Drillhole Plans and
||Use the Graphical User Interface (GUI) with sensible default setting to create and recreate drillhole sections and plans with a few mouse clicks.|
|Surface Mapping||Use design wizards and function rich gridding routines to simplify the creation of grids and contour maps from stream, soil, rock and geophysical data.|
Strip Log and Fence Diagram
||Display drillhole data in strip logs and fence diagrams, backed with dynamic data linking capabilities for visualising locations in 3D.|
||Combine drillhole data with all other surface data and information to create detailed, integrated surface and subsurface maps.|
|Map Snapshots||Easily bookmark areas of interest, such as potential target locations, and share them with your colleagues.|
||Use Geosoft Seeker search technology to find, display and extract geospatial data from internal and public servers without leaving the Geosoft environment. View the Seeker Video.|
|Spatial Data Cataloguing||Build organised catalogues of all spatial data on your local disks using Geosoft Dekstop Cataloger. View the Desktop Cataloger Video.|
Compatibility with Mine Planning
||Use any of the major mine planning formats to update, modify or enhance your data, including Surpac STR, DTM and Datamine Wireframe models.|
|Seamless interoperability||Import and work with more than 50 supported data types and formats including CAD, GIS, mine planning and modelling.|
|Unicode multi-language support||Display plan, sections and strip logs as well as Geosoft database data in foreign language character sets.|
|Geochemistry Analysis||A Geochemistry extension is available for analysis of all components of geochemical sampling in context with the geology and geophysics within a fully integrated mapping environment.|
|Data Sharing||Plug-ins and data conversion options provide superior connectivity between Oasis montaj mapping and GIS or specialized modelling applications. See free software downloads available for Oasis montaj.|
Windows 8 (32-bit and 64-bit)
Windows 7 SP1 (32-bit and 64-bit) - Recommended.
|CPU||A Dual Core processor is recommended. An Intel Celeron processor is not recommended.|
|RAM||4-8 GB recommended, 1 GB minimum required.|
|Graphics||Nvidia Professional 256MB 3D (OpenGL 2.0) Graphics Card recommended.|
|Printer/Plotters||Any Windows® supported colour printer. Hewlett Packard® large-format ink-jet plotters are recommended.|
|Installation Permissions||When installing Oasis montaj or Target, you MUST be logged on with Administrator permissions.|
|Installation Disk Space||2 GB or more of free space on the Program Files drive is required for the installation process.|
|Data Disk Space||Data disk space depends on the volume of project data to be processed and the printer driver you are using. We recommend 500 GB to 1 TB, minimum 50 GB.|
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 9.0 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 (SP5)
