Abstract

Scientists within Geoscience Australia create complex 3D models of geological structures, using specialised 3D modelling software. Very few people outside Geoscience Australia have access to this specialised software. To provide clients and stakeholders with access to 3D information Geoscience Australia has developed VRML-HTML-JavaScript interfaces. These interfaces allow Geoscience Australia to share large volumes of complex 3D geological information via the Web, with data volumes up to 22 MB. A number of methods are employed to allow users to interact with such large amounts of data. The geometric features within VRML are used to represent a wide range of geological features. The interfaces are user friendly and provide users with a high level of interaction with the complex information.
