Virtual Outcrop Models
CASP geologists use 3D virtual outcrop models (VOMs) to add value to existing field-based data through enhanced geological interpretation, the extraction of data and the delineation and quantification of geobodies.
CASP routinely conduct land- and drone-based photogrammetry surveys and has an established workflow for the creation of VOMs. Drones in particular offer significant advantages over traditional remote sensing systems; they are cost-effective, high resolution, readily transportable and flexible.
In addition to their research value, VOMs enable CASP to offer cost-effective virtual fieldtrips for remote, high-relevance geological analogues that are otherwise inaccessible.
