    Importing and Exporting Data

    Import and export some common file types into and from Oasis montaj.

    Using Spreadsheets, Channels and Profiles

    Introduction to spreadsheets and channels, including displaying data, creating/editing channels, and setting profile options.

    Defining the Coordinate System

    Introduction to Coordinate systems, including setting projected (X,Y) and geographic (long, lat) coordinate systems, and displaying data with different coordinate systems.

    Working with Database Tools

    Process data in the spreadsheet, edit data using conditional expressions, and work with dynamic data links.

    Database Maintenance

    This lesson provides an overview of the data maintenance utilities available in Oasis montaj.

  • Creating Maps

    Maps and Components

    Introduction to maps and map components in Oasis montaj.

    Creating a New Map

    Introduction to base maps and map templates, including creating a map, plotting profiles and navigating around a map.

    Displaying Grids with Colours and Symbols

    Display grids, using the colour tool, and plotting colour legend bars and symbols.

    Creating and Displaying Contours

    Create and manipulate quick, multiple and exact value contours on maps.

    Map Editing and CAD Tools

    Introduction to map groups, lines, polylines and polygons and use the Windows clipboard to import/export graphics.

    Using the Geosoft Seeker Tool

    Use the Geosoft Seeker tool, which is designed to help you search for and download spatial data stored on global and corporate spatial servers.

  • Creating Gridded Data

    Gridding Methods

    Introduction to the gridding methods in Oasis montaj.

    Gridding using the Bi-Directional Gridding Method

    Apply bi-directional gridding to XYZ data, with and without a control file and grid multiple channels.

    3D Gridding Methods

    Create 3D voxels using Kriging, Direct gridding, and Inverse Distance Weighted (IDW) gridding.

  • Using Scripts

    Using Scripts

    Automate tasks in Oasis montaj by scripting, which is the act of creating and running a file that will carry out many operations in a row.

  • Working in 3D

    Importing and Exporting 3D View Files

    Import and export 3D views using the Geosoft 3DV file format.

    Using the 3D Viewer

    Explore the 3D Viewer environment and how to work with the 3D tools, including creating 3D views, planes, symbols and voxels.

    Merging Voxels

    Merge overlapping voxels independent of their respective projections or the alignment and orientation of their voxel points.

    Converting between Lithology and Numeric Voxels

    Convert a known voxel attribute to a different attribute through the use of a lookup table.

    Using Surfaces in Voxel Math Expressions

    Input surfaces to clip voxels in the Voxel Math Expression builder.

    Creating Isosurfaces from a Geosoft Voxel

    Create isosurfaces, which are written to a geosurface file and allows you to easily share your results with colleagues to collaborate on projects.

    Wireframing Geological Interpretations in 3D

    Start a wireframing session. join polylines to form an open surface, join polygons to form a closed surface, view information for surfaces in a geosurface file.

  • Using Filters

    Filtering Databases and Grids

    Apply 1D filters to a channel of data in a database and 2D filters to gridded data, in order to remove noise/errors, remove regional trends and/or enhance certain geological features.

    Filtering Voxels

    Apply various spatial convolution filters to existing voxels, in order to spatially smooth 3D measured or calculated data, emphasize areas of rapid intensity changes, or delineate rock unit/contact boundaries

  • Advanced Mapping

    Advanced Mapping

    Integrate geochemical data in to an environment that focusses on a single type of data (i.e. geophysical).

    Masking Data

    Create a polygon file to define an area for masking a map and windowing a grid and a database.

    Creating Section(s) from Array Data

    Creating georeferenced section, stacked section, and 3D maps using Array data.

    Creating Multi-Parameter Stacked Section

    The Creating Multi-Parameter Stacked Section guide will show you how to create georeferenced multi-parameter stacked section maps, from array data.

    Working with 3D Snapshots and Animations

    Use 3D Snapshot and Animation tools to capture your 3D Views and combine them together to create a 3D video that tells a story about your project.

    Working with Map Templates

    Open an existing template to explore the main features and characteristics of a map template. Use a template to create simple base maps for presentations or very sophisticated maps for printing.

    Exporting and Printing Maps

    Export interim processed data to another system for additional manipulation or to a GIS system for creating final map products and integrating with other sources of data. Use your installed Windows system drivers to create printer or plotter outputs.

  • Advanced Gridding and Imaging

    Colour Imaging

    Create colour shaded images, activate the interactive colour shading tool, and apply advanced colour imaging.

    Using Trend Enforcement Gridding

    Use the Trend Enforcement Gridding Tool to alleviate a traditional problem in gridding geophysical data, that is, the aliasing problem that occurs due to the presence of more samples “along the lines” than across lines.
