An Application of Using Virtual Reality Modeling Languate Method to Analyze the Geophysical Data

Abstract

Using the Virtual Reality Modeling Language (VRML) technique, we have developed a software in which one can intelligently "walk", "slide", "examine", "point", "view" and "look" the geophysical data in a real-time mode. This technique improves data presentation and interpretation. It works better than the traditional 2-D and 3-D mapping tools. We further apply the "image texture" method in the system by which the bathmetry grid can be combined together with other reflection data); one can thus smartly analyze the integrated images. This method is in an interactive-mode. As compared with other commercial batch-mode VRML, the implications are unlimited.
