Data Integration and Analysis
3D model generation, usage of extracted data is important to achieve application results. Early work integrated outcrop models and interpretations into reservoir modelling workflows. Incorporating field observations into 3D environments, together with a narrative and background information allows the use of photorealistic datasets as the basis for virtual excursions. Our data integration and analysis activities are currently concentrated on the SAFARI database project. The main goal is to develop a fully searchable repository of geological outcrop data from clastic sedimentary systems for reservoir modelling and exploration, and to improve our understanding of sequence stratigraphy. Many different data types are integrated in a uniform way, together with a knowledge base, and geological outcrops from around the world are implemented. A novel 3D viewer allows large photorealistic models to be served over the Internet.
