Geological Uncertainty Quantified with GeoModeller

From the BRGM, France: Gabriel Courrioux et al. 

"Experience from 3D Cartography training sessions. Implications for uncertainty factors identification"

In this technical poster, Courrioux et. al. display the outcomes of practical analysis of geological uncertainty.

Together with different universities, BRGM is conducting a Master school for Geomodelling in the field. The objective is to reconcile traditional practice of cartography with 3D geological modelling technicques.

Geology field data > GeoModelling > Models comparison > 3D probability visualisation

Data and models from 12 different sessions are analysed, which allows to draw the consequences in terms of uncertainty factors.
