By Reinhard Pflug, John W. Harbaugh

Point of view perspectives, similar to block diagrams and fence diagrams have regularly been an enormous technique of clinical visualiza- tion in geology. complicated third-dimensional desktop gra- phics is a brand new instrument for the development of such perspectives. The publication comprises papers offered on the first huge interna- tional assembly (Freiburg, October 8-11, 1990) that introduced jointly operating teams engaged in improvement of 3-D visua- lization courses for geologic reasons, and incorporated humans fromuniversities, govt businesses, the mining undefined (especially oil businesses) and from software program businesses enga- ged in geology and geographic info structures. Many dif- ferent features of utilizing third-dimensional special effects are mentioned within the papers. emphasised are diversified ap- proaches of modeling and rendering a 3D geometric version, of remodeling approach simulation effects into standpoint perspectives, and use of third-dimensional computer-graphics as an extra software for interpretation and prediction. Prospec- tive readers contain geologists and geophysicists from aca- demia, govt and who should still locate ideason how to provide and interpret their very own geological observations and effects with the aid of third-dimensional machine gra- phics.

Many ground-water flow models used for problem solving simulate aquifers in three dimensions. Model input and output consist of large data sets that describe the geometry of an aquifer, the water table, flow rates, and more.

Well logs were entered into the system by digitizing from paper h a r d copy. We utilized the interactive interpretation system to correlate the well logs and "pick" geologic horizons of interest. The tops were posted on the digital base map and "manually" contoured. The resulting contour maps were appropriately combined to densify the data. This resulted in 125 to 250 new d a t a points in addition tops from the 21 wells. Once the data was densified, contoured surfaces were created for the upper and lower halves of each sandbody; an additional surface was created for the H u n t s m a n Shale.
