Visualizing 3D Data in Earth Sciences
Most data in earth sciences are spatially distributed, either as vector data, (points, lines, polygons) or as raster data (gridded topography). Vector data are generated by digitizing map objects such as drainage networks or outlines of lithologic units. Raster data can be obtained directly from a satellite sensor output, but gridded data can also, in most cases, be interpolated from irregularly-distributed field samples (gridding).
