Why you should work with digital outcrop data

As geoscientists our field time is precious, we do what we can to make that time as useful and productive as possible. One way of enhancing field time is to use digital, or virtual, outcrop data.
Real-world field trips become a better learning experience with the additional use of digital outcrops.

Learn or teach the basics of the outcrop beforehand so you can spend more hands-on time in the field. You can also re-visit the outcrop virtually post-trip to emphasise and reinforce learning outcomes.
By collecting digital outcrop models as part of your field campaign and offsetting some mapping/data collection tasks into the office, you have more time in the field to focus on detailed studies. The ability to view your study area from different angles often leads to new insights into the geology. Being able to make measurements from areas not accessible in the field leads to larger (and more robust) datasets.
In some cases, a digital or virtual outcrop may be the only way you ever get to see a geological exposure or visit a field area. If done well this will still give a valuable learning experience and enhance your knowledge.
Digital outcrop data is another, immensely powerful, tool in the field geoscientists toolbox.
VRGeoscience is here to help you unlock that power.
