Many Geological Survey Organisations (GSOs) are using 3D modelling software technology for a vast variety of applications. Initially many 3D tools were designed for the exploitation of digital seismic mass data existing in hydrocarbon exploration industry. Accordingly, GSOs have to adapt available software and to modify it to their special requirements, defining their own best practice. The Geological Survey of the Bavarian Environment Agency has developed procedures and workflows for a variety of 3D modelling applications. With limited staffing and resources effective software tools and workflows have been developed to create functional 3D geological models.The article's intention is to encourage smaller organisations to participate in this fast evolving community of 3D modelling by stating the obstacles and showing ways to overcome these hurdles.

Zahlreiche Geologische Dienste setzen 3D-Modelliertechniken routinemäßig für eine Vielzahl unterschiedlicher Anwendungen ein. Viele dieser 3D-Werkzeuge wurden ursprünglich allein zur Auswertung umfangreicher seismischer Daten in der Kohlenwasserstoff-Exploration entwickelt. Ihre Anwendung in den Aufgabengebieten Geologischer Dienste bedarf daher einer Modifizierung und Anpassung an die jeweiligen Arbeitsabläufe. Am Beispiel des Geologischen Dienstes am Bayerischen Landesamt für Umwelt werden die Hauptanwendungsgebiete, Voraussetzungen und technischen Behelfslösungen der 3D-Modellierung erläutert. Trotz anfänglich stark beschränkter Ressourcen konnte eine Grundkonzeption erarbeitet, Software-Entwicklungen und neue Arbeitsabläufe verwirklicht und letztendlich so ein durchaus hohes Niveau der Modellerstellung erreicht werden.

Ein Ziel dieses Beitrags ist es, Hindernisse und Wege zu deren Überwindung aufzuzeigen und dadurch kleinere Geologische Dienste zu einer verstärkten Mitarbeit in der sich rasch entwickelnden 3D-Gemeinde zu ermutigen.

More about this publication?
  • Zeitschrift der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Geowissenschaften (ZDGG) is an international peer reviewed journal that accepts papers on research and applied topics in the Earth Sciences. It is published online and in print. One volume, consisting of four issues is published annually. The journal has been published by the German Geological Society since its foundation in 1848. It was relaunched in 2005.

    ZDGG invites the submission of English, German and French language papers from all fields of geology, hydrogeology, paleontology, tectonics, sedimentology, engineering geology and of course environmental geology to name a few. The editors of ZDGG also invite suggestions for thematic issues.

    Please note that ZDGG issues from Volume 170 are now available from the publisher's website at https://www.schweizerbart.de/journals/zdgg
