Raplee Ridge in 3D

Raplee Ridge was infamous in my structural geology lab.  It was our last project due by the end of finals week.  We had to measure strike and dip using lidar and lidarviewer and create a geologic map using an aerial photo.  We did so by using color descriptions and relative age of formations.  We used ArcDesktop and utilized topology.

The dataset provided to us was of very high quality.  After a bit of processing using what I learned about GRASS today, I loaded up nvis.  Raplee Ridge is beautiful.  I didn't quite get that from the project.  In fact, looking at these views, one can very quickly get an idea what the structure was that we were trying to tease apart from the lidar data using lidarviewer!
