Visualisation of 3D–4D models in exploration and geosciences


While the territory of the EU in many parts shows a very high exploration potential,  it is still a fact that a mere 4% of global expenditure in exploration is invested within European countries. One tool to trigger a higher degree of investment in exploration and to secure ultimately the domestic supply of both main commodities and critical raw materials is to enhance our understanding of the Earth’s crust below the surface—and the major aspect is here to optimise our understanding about the 3rd dimension in geology.
