April 4, 2007 --Encom, a leading provider of desktop software, data management and advanced technical consulting for the geosciences has released Discover 3D 2.5.
The latest release of Encom Discover 3D for MapInfo Professional, delivers to geoscientists an exciting range of productivity tools and enriched interactive 3D display capabilities. Discover 3D provides tools for interactive analysis of drillholes, trenches, profiles, mine models, terrain, geochemistry, geophysical models, topography and geological sections directly linked to a user’s GIS work environment.
Visualisation enhancements include 3D performance, transparency management, volume clipping, object selection and new data object links,
Discover 3D creates and edit points, lines and polygons in 3D to add interpretive elements directly to the 3D volume. It uses these objects to create features such as 3D fault surfaces, interpretive geological surfaces, untested target volumes and resource outlines.
The new voxel and block model handling is used to analyse mult arameter geochemistry in the context of geological models and the original drillhole data. Dynamic slicing and isosurface colouring by geochemistry rovides powerful tools for understanding 3D geological trends.
“Working in 3D changes the way you think about geological relationships and improves the quality of drilling decisions” said Dave Pratt, Managing Director, Encom. “Discover 3D is fully integrated with MapInfo Professional, provides direct support for many mine planning applications and gives the exploration geologist the flexibility to do what they do best - search for the next world class deposit”.
MapInfo and Encom have been partnering for over 12 years to deliver an integrated geographic information system (GIS) tailored specifically for geoscientists. “The marriage of MapInfo’s core GIS engine and Encom’s expert knowledge of the geoscience sector has proven to be a highly successful partnership” said Jonathan Wright, Managing Director – MapInfo Asia Pacific. “Encom’s advanced understanding of the geosciences has largely been responsible for MapInfo Professional & Discover’ becoming one of the leading GIS-based solutions for the mineral exploration industry"
Encom is a leading innovator and global supplier of specialist software, data and services to mineral exploration, petroleum exploration and engineering companies. Encom is a longterm MapInfo strategic partner, with a network of over 60 resellers worldwide and GIS customers in 100 countries.
Following a merger with Perth company Meridian GIS, Encom’s geospatial software applications have been integrated with the Compass Enterprise system to provide workflow and productivity solutions for GIS, geology, geophysics and engineering specialists.
