BlastIQ™ Insights - Drilling XY Position Dashboard


Release Date:
27th September 2022
KBA Summary:
This Knowledge Base Article describes the use of the Drilling XY Position Dashboard in BlastIQ™ Insights.


BlastIQ™ Insights enables users to visualise the drilling XY Position compliance of holes within a blast plan via the Drilling XY Position Dashboard.


Single Blast Dashboard Map Navigation

Note: The old Single Blast Drilling XY Position Dashboard can be found under "XY Position (classic)".

To navigate to the Drilling XY Position Dashboard:

  1. From the BlastIQ™ Insights toolbar, select Dashboards.
  2. From the Dashboards menu, select Drilling > XY Position.


Via Site Map

  1. Select a single blast by clicking a blast on the map.
  2. Right-click and navigate to the "Drilling."
  3. Select "XY Position."

  10. Display.



Hole Compliance

Each hole is evaluated based on the following:




 XA and YA : Drill Actual Collar X and Y coordinates.

 XD and YD: Design Collar X and Y coordinates.

Positional Deviation is calculated for each hole, hence marking the hole as one of the following:

  • Within Tolerance – if the Positional Deviation does not exceed the site’s Drill Collar Position XY Tolerance set in the Admin Portal.
  • Exceeding Tolerance – if the Positional Deviation exceeds the site’s Drill Collar Position XY Tolerance set in the Admin Portal.
  • Or, No Data – There is not sufficient data to run the analysis. E.g. the hole has a Design Collar Position XY but not a Drill Actual Collar Position XY.

Blast % Compliance

The Blast’s Drilling Position % Compliance is calculated with this formula:




This dashboard accepts the Collar XY Tolerances defined in and exported from SHOTPlus.

SHOTPlus 6 > Edit > Blast Properties> Hole tolerances


When no hole type tolerance is specified, the dashboard uses the site level XY Position Reporting Tolerance defined in the Admin Portal.

Any changes to the site level tolerances in the Admin Portal will apply to all single blast dashboards across the site (not previously created reports). To learn more about Reporting Tolerances, click here.



  • All percentage values are truncated to 1 decimal place.
  • All other values are rounded to 1 decimal place.
