Prof John Howell (VOG Group and U. Aberdeen) will hold a half-day workshop on virtual field trips (VFTs) at the British Sedimentological Research Group's AGM (22/12/2021 13:00-17:00 GMT). The workshop will focus on the steps involved in building a VFT and deploying it to course participants, and will be run using LIME. A sneak preview of the upcoming LIME 2.3.1 ...and beyond.
From the BSRG programme:
Virtual Fieldtrips have become an everyday part of life over the last two years. This workshop will detail the process of designing and building a VFT in LIME using virtual outcrops augmented with a variety of other data such as logs, photos etc. The course will start with an example trip and then go through the steps for building a trip, from design all the way to deployment. By the end of the day, participants will be able to build and run their own VFTs in LIME.
LIME is a purpose built software developed by the Virtual Outcrop Geology Group (NORCE in Bergen and Aberdeen Uni) for the purpose of working with virtual outcrop data. The VOG Group also built V3Geo.com, a public online sharing site for virtual outcrops which can be viewed through a web browser and also brought directly into LIME. Over the past 2 years the group has run over 50 virtual fieldtrips and is actively researching how to optimise VFTs and how they compare to conventional trips.
LIME 2.3.2 is now available for download!
LIME 2.3.1 is available for download now.
