The conference will focus on remote sensing of ground surface and digital processing to support 3D geological modeling and interpretation in various fields of the geosciences (non-exhaustive list):

Digital geological mapping

vertical rock walls, remote lithological mapping, examination of sedimentary structures, mineralogical/geochemical mapping.

Structural geology

characterization of ductile and brittle deformation structures in outcrops, fracturing pattern recognition and tectonic structures.

Natural hazards

rockfalls, landslides and rock mass quality assessment, characterization of release areas and deposits.

Reservoir analogues

characterization and virtual outcrop building.

Tunneling and mining

underground imaging, 3D excavation modeling.

Numerical modeling

representation of complex 3D geological bodies, simulation based on remote sensing data.


new sensors, techniques, tools and data, automatic 3D geological features recognition.
