Modeling Geoscience Data in a Multisensory Virtual Environment
January/February 2004 (vol. 6 no. 1)
pp. 89-92
Chris Harding, Iowa State University

The author describes ongoing efforts to combine high-quality 3D graphics, haptics (from the Greek word haptesthai, to grasp or to touch), and sonification (the use of sound for visualization) into multisensory systems to interactively manipulate geoscientific data. These systems could facilitate many complex tasks that geoscientists in academia and industry face today, lead to new insights, and solve problems in less time. This research applies to many different geoscience branches but here I focus on the oil and gas industry because I spent the last five years working in this domain.
