Unpacking the 3rd D in 3D – Re-imaging the Graph as Data
Track: Mining and Geosciences
Authors: David Kelly, Milos Pelikan
The plan view is an un-written law of GIS, problematic for data that is stacked. Those working in underground investigations are confronted by this issue in representing the information they collect. Common solutions include graphs or 3D technologies. Graphs end of the value chain, 3D tech is overkill. Our customers really just wanted the 3rd “D” in 3D. We developed a solution that automates the creation of a profile (x-section) GIS within the standard Arcmap environment.
