  • Most 3D geological modelling tools were designed for the needs of the oil industry and are not suited to the variety of situations encountered in other application domains. Moreover, the usual modelling tools are not able to quantify the uncertainty of the geometric models generated. The potential-field method was designed to build 3D geological models from data available in geology and mineral exploration, namely the geological map and a DTM, structural data, borehole data and interpretations… CONTINUE READING
