The Hong Kong Regional Group is hosting a technical talk on Thursday 18 July 2013. From geological maps to 3D and 4D models - transforming the delivery and relevance of geological knowledge for practitioners.

Geological Survey Organisations (GSOs) are increasingly replacing geological map outputs, by highly visual, variably parameterised 3D, and 4D, models (deterministic and stochastic). Benefiting from improving software, workflows, and visualisation tools, these deliver geological data and knowledge to practitioners engaged in a range of engineering and environmental decision-making.

The British Geological Survey has embraced the migration from 2D to 3D and 4D in developing a National Geological Model of the UK. This aims to be an accurate, multi-scalar, 3D geospatial model depicting the subsurface rocks and sediments. It draws on vast amounts of borehole and other subsurface data and knowledge (e.g. 2.5 million borehole records), and existing local and regional 3D models.

Diarmad Campbell

Diarmad Campbell is the British Geological Survey's Chief Geologist, Scotland responsible for onshore geological surveying and 3D modelling of Scotland. He currently leads: BGS’s Clyde Urban Super-Project, a major geological multidisciplinary project focused on the Glasgow area; and a European COST (Cooperation on Science and Technology) ACTION, currently with 14 national partners, focused on characterisation and more efficient use of the urban subsurface. He was formerly a member, and latterly Head, of the Hong Kong Geological Survey, within the Planning Division of GEO/CEDD, involved in a range of geological projects related to Hong Kong’s development, infrastructure projects, and landslides. That followed an earlier attachment to the UK’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office, to assist the gold mining industry in Zimbabwe.
