Mapping Geology In Cities

The main purpose of this project was easily to enable non-expert users to obtain and evaluate data from urban environments. For this to be feasible, the project aimed at creating a combined setup of instrument and software that would create an integrated, semi-automated data framework. With this in place, the non-expert user would be able to collect the new data needed to close any gaps of information and instantly share this information with work partners.

The involved parties were I-GIS A/S, Lund University, Faculty Of Engineering, Guideline Geo AB, Department of Geoscience and Aarhus University, that each provided their expertise to obtain the desired goal.

So far the project has achieved to provide a more advanced instrument, ABEM Terrameter LS, with an easier interface for the analytic tool, the Aarhus Workbench. In Aarhus Workbench, more automated and robust methods have been implemented to ensure that less expert knowledge would be necessary. In the visualisation program, GEOScene3D, support for the output of these more robust features are now available, combining all three tools in a very strong work package for obtaining urban environment geology for non-expert users.
