"There is software out there that allows us to display the geochemistry on an x-y scatterplot or triangular plot to get the geochemical signature of the sample, but you don't know which sample has which signature because there is no link to your map. With the Geosoft software, when we select samples on the scatter diagram they are automatically highlighted on the map. That's a powerful tool."

for Esri ArcGIS
Geochemistry for ArcGIS enables explorers to analyse geochemical data within their Esri ArcGIS environment. Using Geochemistry for ArcGIS, geoscientists can effectively examine multivariate relationships, uncover underlying structures and present results with visually impactful maps.
Exploratory Geochemical Data Analysis
Geosoft Geochemistry for ArcGIS builds on the success of our subsurface geology extension, Target for ArcGIS, and provides you with the ability to organise, ensure quality control, visualise, and analyse geochemical data within the Esri ArcGIS environment.
Using Geochemistry for ArcGIS, you can:
- Simplify your geochemistry quality control process and maintain data in an Esri file geodatabase using a data model optimised for geochemical data.
- Select and subset data interactively from maps based on lithology and regions to enhance data display.
- Create advanced geochemical maps within the Esri ArcGIS Desktop environment.
- Analyse multi-element geochemistry using interactive multiple histogram plots, Pearson’s correlation reports, scatter plots, probability plots, ternary plots and box plots, to identify outliers and define populations.
- Import data from several different sources and file types.

|A new digitization workflow for creating geological interpretations||
A new streamlined workflow makes it easy to digitize geological interpretations on section maps using the native ArcGIS editing tools. You can save all your interpretations to a single Interpretations Geodatabase, making it easier to manage and to share geological models with colleagues.
Each Geodatabase can contain several sets of interpretations, stored as geological feature classes. 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.
|Quality Control||Use the quality control and quality assurance functionality to effectively validate and analyse your standards and duplicates, to ensure that all results fall within acceptable limits.|
||Split, subset and refine data for statistical analysis based on regional geological differences, analytical techniques or sampling types.|
||Use design wizards and function rich gridding routines to simplify the creation of grids and contour maps from stream, soil, rock and geophysical data.|
||Process any type of surface or subsurface geochemical data in ArcGIS. Tools allow you to create data selections and to include or exclude selected points from the data.|
||Сalculate basic and advanced statistical parameters for a single assay element, including geometric mean, variance and other methods.|
||Import your geochemical drilling data from your drillhole projects directly from Geosoft Target for ArcGIS.|
Recommended hardware and software requirements for Geochemistry for ArcGIS 2.6
Windows 7 SP1 (32-bit and 64-bit) - Recommended.
Requires ArcGIS 10 (SP5), ArcGIS 10.1 (SP1), or ArcGIS 10.2
|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 ArcGIS Extensions, 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, however 100 GB is recommended. This is largely based on your business and data requirements.|
|Internet||To use the internet capabilities in your Geosoft software, you will need to install Internet Explorer 7.0 or later. This does not mean that you have to have Internet Explorer as your default browser; the Geosoft software applications just use the internet connection technology supplied in IE7.|
