comment Can I create, union and intersect 3D multipatch features using 3D Analyst extension (ArcGIS 10)?
Good question. The spheres are not closed? Can you get a volume from the sphere multipatches created with the 3D To FC technique?

comment Migrating from Visual Studio 2008 (ArcGIS 10) to Visual Studio 2010
Not sure about that. The ArcGIS installer requires VS2008 to be installed. Both VS2008 and 2010 are fine but the SDK will not install with only VS 2010 installed on the machine. Mind you i do not have the full version only Express. I wanted to do the same and upgrade all my add-ind on my new machine just a few weeks ago and it would not install unless I put on VS 2008 express.

Thanks a bunch. Just wanted to make sure before I write an Add-on.

comment What are the pros and cons of using the ArcGIS Viewer for Flex vs. creating your own GIS application vs creating your own framework?
Right. I forgot about that. When I was looking into this in the past the primary objective was to create and publish my own data. So if I wanted to publish my own data i would still need an ArcGIS server then, correct? That is what confused me at the demonstrations - they had people creating and editing data on all sorts of devices and then showing us how they appear in the desktop application. I guess It wasn't clear to me so when i took the workshop I was surprised that to create and publish my own data and have people view and edit them requires a lot more then the viewer.

Whenever ESRI showcases ArcGIS Viewer for Flex at conferences they make it seem like an easy out of the box solution but does it not require ArcGIS Server license (not to mention server hardware). It looks good and simple and might be useful for some applications but it seems like a huge investment for putting up a simple web map.

comment What tool was used to produce these Cross Sections?
I managed to create fairly complex sections in ArcMap (using a variety of techniques) but it's very time consuming. The benefit to this approach is the superior layout and editing tools in ArcGIS. However, this only works for north-south and east-west sections. (and even that is not straight forward as i have to convert everything to points and project to those planes) I now have to do inclined section at a given azimuth and that is simply not possible in ArcGIS. I still use ArcMap though because geosoft allows me to export everything to shapefiles so i just do the final assembly in ArcMap.

comment What tool was used to produce these Cross Sections?
@Mapperz - can you make that an answer so i can mark this post as answered. I am almost certain you are right about Datamine Studio. I contacted them and they confirmed Detour Gold is their client. I also got some promo material and the outputs look similar.

comment What tool was used to produce these Cross Sections?
Thanks @CDBrown. Definitely not Target Geosoft. I have a Target license and this is not something it can do. I also evaluated the ArcGIS extensions but those were too buggy so I got the full version instead. I am pretty sure that the section has been created with Datamine Studio. (thanks to Mapperz' investigative work) However I also know now that no program can dynamically generate subsurface geology as shown above from drillhole assays alone. Its most likely created by slicing through existing 3D lithology models. Geosoft can do that but it's a cumbersome process.

comment 50cm imagery - aerial or satellite?
The air photo company has already been hired and flown the entire area twice. (They've screwed up the first time) They just for some reason have not delivered the product yet and have all kinds of excuses. I didn't personally place the order but I am not sure whether I've seen any type of quality assurance policy. We just need something and satellite is the only other quick option. i am just not convinced it will be good enough. As for quality the satellite imagery is cloud free quickbird GeoEye combination short shadows.

comment 50cm imagery - aerial or satellite?
Both aerial and satellite options are delivered as an ortho-rectified mosaic. No post processing required. Both are mid summer imagery, satellite is a combo of 2011 and 2010.
