DATA PREPARATION, DATA MANAGEMENT, CREATION AND DELIVERY OF 3D GEOLOGICAL MODELS IN GOCAD
GSI has being a member of the GSI3D Research Consortium for the last few years and has being using GSI3D to create 3D models of the Quaternary of Dublin and Cork. When GSI attempted to model Bedrock using the same software it was clear that GSI3D wasn’t able to do it.
All those reasons in conjunction with the ceasing of the GSI3D Research Consortium in 2015 forced GSI to look for alternatives to continue with the 3D modelling.
Aim and purpose
The aim and purpose of this STSM was to learn the basics of 3D modelling and data delivery using Gocad in order for GSI to progress in the 3D modelling. As BGS has being using Gocad for many years and they have develop best practice and many 3D models, it felt right to propose this STSM in conjunction with them.
