AbstractThere is broad international attention to the need for sound subsurface geological models, and thus to the methods required to extend conventional geologic mapping methods to the construction of these models. Geological Survey Organizations (GSO's) in a number of jurisdictions have made significant progress in the development and implementation of three dimensional (3D) mapping programs (Berg et al., 2011). Nevertheless, such examples are few in number and there is a need to develop a framework that will accelerate more comprehensive 3D geological mapping (Thorleifson et al., 2010). It is apparent that many small geological survey organizations feel they lack the critical human and financial resources to develop 3D geological mapping programs.
