Abstract

AGSO Record 2000/45 is a report of the results of specialist structural geological studies in the North Pilbara between 1997-2000 and, for the first time, this report provides a comprehensive synthesis of the structural evolution of the resource-rich North Pilbara Craton. A print, CD-ROM, and web based output. The report can be viewed with a standard web browser. Traditionally, the science of structural geology is presented in a one-dimensional printed text document format with accompanying maps, drawings, and images referred to from the text at appropriate points. This approach creates a problem in communication, as structural geology is four dimensional (the three spatial dimensions and time). The report is structured so that the new information can be accessed in three different ways. 1) a 'standard' way where the text is arranged chronologically and where the user can skip to sections of interest by embedded hyperlinks; 2) geographical regions on a map with hyperlinked text explanations, maps, and images, and; 3) time-based break up of the text (by structural events eg D1, D2 etc) so that the same event can be compared across regions. A printable version is also available on the CD-ROM. Over 200 scanned photographs are located spatially on active maps so the user can see the geology described in their correct spatial position and in relation to other areas. This provides a 'virtual' fieldtrip for the user, who can decide where they want to go in the report. The report can be viewed with the standard web browser.
