I-GIS Develops GeoScene3D - Geological Modeling and Visualization Software

October 22, 2013

I-GIS (www.I-GIS.dk) located in Denmark has used the TatukGIS Developer Kernel to develop its GeoScene3D geological modeling and visualization software. A leading developer of environmental GIS solutions, I-GIS customers include the Danish Ministry of Environment, Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS), Danish Road Directorate, most Danish municipalities, and all Danish agencies for spatial and environmental planning. I-GIS projects often involve high resolution geological mapping data prepared by associated organizations SkyTEM Surveys and Aarhus University (which are also TatukGIS customers).

GeoScene3D is perfectly suited for groundwater and environmental use, providing visualization, interpreting, editing, and publishing of many different types of geological data, for example drill holes, geophysics, water chemistry, terrain and geological layers. It is possible to create and edit points and layers and create and edit voxel models. All data types can be edited directly in 3D views, in cross sections, or in maps with a large range of tools. Built-in 2D and 3D interpolation routines create 2D and 3D GRID’s on-the-fly. GeoScene3D supports a wide range of data types and formats, including GIS data from ESRI and MapInfo software.

I-GIS used the TatukGIS Developer Kernel VCL edition with the Embarcadero Delphi development platform for the development of GeoScene3D.

A regional geologic layer cake model built in GeoScene3D. Main window types include 3D camera
views, 2D vertical cross section views, and 2D GIS windows based on the TatukGIS Developer Kernel.
Most data types used for modeling can also be shown in the map window. In this image there is an
Open Street Map layer, project area, cross sections, camera positions, etc.

A 3D voxel model built in GeoScene3D. Voxel models are based on regularly spaced 3D grids,
or voxels, with varying size giving a flexible level of detail.

GeoScene3D is described in more detail in the GeoScene3D product sheet. The following links are to GeoScene3D videos at YouTube.
