Traditionally, geoscientists have translated their field data collection efforts into a digital version of a geological map, which is typically built using GIS software (e.g. ArcGIS). Consequently most companies will have large archives loaded with GIS information from their projects. With more companies now choosing to collect their field data using electronic devices it ultimately results in a large repository of GIS data. The purpose of this blog is to help make use of this valuable data and share an efficient workflow to morph a 2D GIS geological map (without drillhole data) into a 3D geological model using Leapfrog Geo. The main part of this procedure is to assign a vertical component for the 2D map while providing a representative final interpretation of the underground geology. Read More
