Geological Remote Sensing/3D Modeling Lab and Tectonics Lab

Tectonics Lab

The Tectonics lab is equipped with several Macs running MacOS for graphics and computer modeling. The lab layout allows users to have maps and other project materials at hand, as large tables for working with paper maps, map drawers, and closets for samples and thin sections are set up in the same room. A high-resolution projector is available, so that maps from the electronic map collection and finished 3D models can be displayed directly on the wall. One reflected-light and one transmitted-light microscope are also set up in the room to allow routine checks of thin sections that are part of a lab user's project.

Geological Remote Sensing/3D Modeling Lab

This lab is equipped with several PCs running either Windows or Linux OS for data processing and 3D modeling and visualization, wide-format integrated scanner/printer system (110 cm), wide-format laminating machine (60 cm), high-quality A3 flatbed scanner, large cutter. 

Software available:  GocadTM, Agisoft PhotoscanTM, ArcGISTM, GlobalMapperTM, MatlabTM, software for manipulating raw data collected using the terrestrial laser scanner, software for processing GPS data, graphics editing software (including editing for 3D printing).
