A powerful feature of LIME is the ability to import geophysical data panels representing 2D sections through the subsurface, such as from ground penetrating radar (GPR) or seismic data. The images are positioned in the 3D scene using Panels, allowing overlay and projection. This provides a unique ability to directly compare exposed topography with subsurface datasets, to aid correlation, quality control, and presentation of results.
