Geosoft Add-in for ArcGIS Pro

What is the Add-in?

The Geosoft Add-in for ArcGIS Pro enables you to work with Geosoft raster files (grids) within Esri ArcGIS Pro. You can convert Geosoft rasters into Esri rasters and display them in ArcGIS Pro maps and 3D scenes. Import vertically-oriented section rasters to their correct 3D locations in a single step. Search for free geoscience datasets by keyword or location.

Incorporating your geophysical or geochemical raster datasets within your GIS project can add context and information to your exploration projects. Apply Interpretative visualization techniques specific to geoscience data, such as histogram-equalized and log-linear colour stretches, to emphasize specific qualities and improve your understanding of the data.

View and convert Geosoft grids to Esri rasters

View your geophysical or geochemical Geosoft raster files (.grd) in ArcGIS Pro quickly and easily.

Seamlessly convert multiple Geosoft raster files into Esri formats, then visualize, analyze or process your data with ArcGIS Pro.

Use the Geosoft Viewer to view geoscience data

Find public data

Quick symbology and shading

Apply standard geoscientific colour methods to enhance important details and make your data easier to interpret. Use a histogram-equalized colour method for geophysical rasters and log-linear classification for geochemical rasters.

Quickly apply shading to selected rasters using the Esri multi-dimensional hill shading tool to give your rasters more visual contrast and depth.

Import sections without georeferencing

Import sections or subsurface rasters and easily display them in an ArcGIS Pro 3D scene with their correct location and orientation.

Use the Geosoft Viewer to visualize, integrate and overlay geoscience data

Find free geoscience data

Search Geosoft DAP Servers for global geoscience datasets by keyword or location.

Download and display raster and vector data easily, to view, process, and analyze in ArcGIS Pro.
