The 3D block structure for each region was compiled from the digital geological map, topographic data and geological cross-sections in ArcGIS. These block models were then exported and converted for display within the Adobe Acrobat 3D pdf format. The 3D pdf documents were compiled for each region using the 3D model data and additional information including the Generalised Vertical Section (GVS) which is used for the key and extended legend.
