Project Description

The integrity of 3D geological models heavily relies on robust and consistent data interpretation. This project proposes
an innovative workflow for 3D modelling to minimise geological uncertainty. Advanced visualisation and intelligent
decision support methods will be combined to assist geological interpretation. Feedback on interpretation will be
provided based on data evidence and consistency with expert knowledge and previous interpretations. The process can
be considered as a spelling and grammar checker for geological interpretation. The outcome of this study aims to
achieve an improved workflow that reduces model uncertainty, resulting in a broad and significant impact on the
management of Australian mineral, energy and water resources.
