Virtual Outcrop

We constantly work on embedding as much as possible, the results from digital outcrop models (DOM) and remote sensing into our structural interpretations.

See some of our models at the bottom of this page, or even more HERE.

The 3D virtual outcrops are created using Agisoft Metashape Professional (among other software) which use photogrammetry to reconstruct three dimensional objects from two dimensional datasets (terrestrial and aerial photography). One of our interest is using multi-spectral and thermal datasets in combination with normal photography.

Using the Virtual Reality feature of VRGS together with the Oculus Rift S VR googles to discuss the structural and depositional features of an digital outcrop model.

The resulting 3D models are used to extract and analyse data in various software (i.e. Google Earth, Matlab, FracPaq, CloudCompare, Lime, etc.), but most of our interpretations are performed in VRGS (Virtual Reality Geological Studio). VRGS not only offers us the opportunity to easily extract structural data, but also to view and discuss the models in a VR (Virtual Reality) environment.
