OR/13/001 Model workflow
A standard GSI3D workflow (Kessler & Mathers, 2004;; Kessler et al. 2009) for superficial geological models was followed, in the parts of the model surveyed as an integrated exercise (all TM) borehole coding was followed by the field survey, the 1:10 000 geological lines were captured digitally by CartoGIS from field slips and/or fair drawn linework on plastic. The resulting 1:10 000 scale provisional shape files were then provided for use in modelling. Edits to the shape files were made iteratively as a result of the modelling, in particular subcrops at rockhead were revised with the benefit of a 3D visualisation of the geology. It has been assembled and edited using the current versions of the GSI3D software since 2006 i.e. 2.0–2.6–2011–2012 (bedrock).
