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.Page.png

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.Navigation.png
  3. Select the desired blast from the drop-down list. Type in to narrow down the list.Navigation1.png




  1. Right-click on a blast in Site Map.
  2. Select Drilling>XY Position.

The following information is shown on the Drilling Length Dashboard:

  1. Total number of holes.
  2. Colour Legend (underdrilled/within tolerance/overdrilled).
  3. Summary.
  4. Plots.
  5. Coloured Heatmap.
  6. Hole (hover over) information.

  1. Click on the View options in the bottom left corner.
  2. Select from Comments, Wet or None.
  3. A secondary indicator is shown on the map.Indicator.png

Note: Available for single blast only.



  •  Tolerances:

For any of the comparisons, the tolerance considered will be the hole type's XY Position tolerances set in SHOTPlus™, if either of these tolerances are not set by any of the hole types, then the Site's Reporting Tolerances are used to evaluate if a hole is within or exceeding tolerance.

  • Deviation Calculation:

XY deviation = SQRT(Xd^2 + Yd^2)


Xd = absolute difference between actual and design X or Easting collar location.

Yd = absolute difference between actual and design Y or Northing collar location.


  • Compliance Score:

For any of the comparisons, the compliance score (%) is calculated as follows:

Compliance Score (%) = 100*W/M

W = count of holes within tolerance
M = count of hole with design and actual XY collar coordinates.


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