Geophysics models
Circa 2008-2011

Geoscience combines data from multiple sources to gain insight into the hidden structure of the Earth. Those sources can include 3D geophysics models of sub-surface structure, gravity maps, magnetics maps, and and satellite images.

These 3D visualizations show multiple 3D layers of data, including isosurfaces and cutting planes through a P-wave model of sub-surface structure for the western US. State outlines and maps provide context. 3D earthquake epicenters show areas of high activity that may correlate with underlying structures.

This project was funded by the National Science Foundation. Development was in Java/Swing, Java OpenGL, and NASA WorldWind.

Terrain models
Circa 2008-2011

While geophysics models provide an inferred structure beneath the surface, terrain models provide definitive information about the visible surface. Atop these models we can map geologic maps of rock types, fault lines, satellite imagery, etc.

These 3D visualizations show multiple layers atop 2.5D terrain models. The first image includes geologic data and fault lines. The second image uses satellite imagery along with 3D earthquake epicenters color coded by strength. State outlines add context.
