Abstract

The Tasmanian TASGO 3D model is a model of the geological structure of Tasmania. It contains: interpretations of the TASGO seismic reflection data and reflection and refraction paths from the TASGO seismic refraction survey, plus elevation, bathymetry, satellite imagery, geology maps, geophysical images, major geological structures, gold deposits, geochronology sites, and Dundas area seismic interpretations, cross-sections and fault planes. It is an interactive VRML (Virtual Reality Modelling Language) model. Users can turn data layers on and off and manipulate the model by rotating, zooming and panning. It is a product of the TASGO project, a National Geoscience Agreement (NGA) project between Mineral Resources Tasmania and Geoscience Australia. Software required Geoscience Australia's X3D and older VRML models require the free plugin BS Contact and work best with the web browser Internet Explorer version 6 or higher.
