Digital mapping and 3D visualization approaches in the Earth Sciences (co-organized)
Convener: Deta Gasser  | Co-Conveners: Simon Buckley , Graham Ferrier 
 / Mon, 24 Apr, 15:30–17:00

Traditional field work in geoscience has become increasingly assisted and partly replaced by various digital technologies and methods over the last decades. A wide range of remote sensing techniques (e.g. laser scanning, photogrammetry, spectral imaging, satellite imagery, etc.) allows the acquisition of detailed structural, geomorphological, topographical and geophysical datasets in the field, while data visualization and interpretation is eased by innovative software enabling the construction of high-resolution 3D models at various scales.

This session aims at presenting and discussing the wide range of existing and newly developed approaches and techniques for digital data acquisition and 3D visualization of a variety of geoscience problems at different scales and within different fields (structural geology, petrology, sedimentology, stratigraphy, geomorphology, natural hazards etc.). Have you recently worked on or completed a mapping project using remote sensing and/or 3D visualization and virtual reality techniques, or do you actively develop digital mapping methods? This session allows you to present your case studies, explain the techniques and approaches used, and inspire others to adopt the same tools (or warn them not to do so). The PICO-format is well-suited for the presentation of interactive content and 3D datasets and to discuss and share your experiences!
