Short Course: Virtual Outcrop Interpretation Using LIME
Instructor: Simon J. Buckley
LIME is a high performance 3D interpretation, visualisation and presentation software for virtual outcrop geology, geoscience and many other applications. The software focuses on advanced visualisation of textured models, meshes and elevation data, and allows additional field photos, georeferenced imagery, geophysical sections, panels, annotations and more to be placed and overlaid in 3D. LIME includes interpretation tools for digitising and measuring features. The combination of large data handling, including from cloud sources such as V3Geo, and novel rendering makes LIME unique for preparing interpretations and high-quality visual outputs for presentation and collaboration. Recent additions to the software allow creation and presentation of virtual field trips for training courses and university classes.
This course will give an overview of LIME functionality using example datasets and projects. We will learn how to import 3D models and other data into the software, then harness the interpretation and visualisation tools to work up some provided outcrop datasets. This knowledge will be put into use to create a simple virtual field trip during the session!
The registration includes:
- Access to the short course virtual platform
- 3-month license for LIME (non-commercial use)
