V3Geo: a cloud-based repository for virtual 3D models in geoscience

Abstract: Abstract. V3Geo is a cloud-based repository for publishing virtual 3D models in geoscience. The system allows storage, search and visualisation of mesh models typically acquired using techniques such as photogrammetry and laser scanning. The platform has been developed to handle models at the range of scales typically used by geoscientists from microscopic, hand samples and fossils through to outcrop sections or terrain covering metres to tens of kilometres. The cloud storage system serves the models to a purp… Show more

“…It is worth pointing out, however, that even though sharing of 3D models can be viewed as positive for the public, the routine inclusion of virtual outcrop models in cartography projects similar to CARG, would require the definition of standardized workflows to guarantee proper quality standards. This could be achieved by issuing shared guidelines to be included in official databases (e.g., Buckley et al, 2022). In addition, virtual outcrop models are a very effective way to document and preserve outcrops (Burnham et al, 2022;Corradetti et al, 2022), which could be modified or even destroyed by natural or anthropic causes and therefore hold great potential for geological cultural heritage preservation and geoscience in general.…”

Moreover, virtual outcrop models represent the milieus for augmented accessibility, inclusivity, and scientific reproducibility (Burnham et al, 2022;Cawood et al, 2022) as well as to deliver virtual field trips (Cliffe, 2017;Pugsley et al, 2022).…”

“…Visualisation and interpretation is possible through freeware (e.g., Agisoft's Viewer, Blender) and commercial software like LIME (Buckley et al, 2019). Reduced-size textured models and corresponding metadata are available online through Svalbox (Senger et al, 2021), SketchFab, and V3Geo (Buckley et al, 2022), Table 2.…”

“…Despite the increased implementation of DOMs, most data and interpretations remain inaccessible (Vieira et al, 2021;Burnham et al, 2022). Few repositories, such as V3Geo (Buckley et al, 2022) and e-Rock (Cawood and Bond, 2019), enable the sharing of DOMs, yet they do not openly share the input data (e.g. photographs) and processing parameters, nor do they typically abide by FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reproducible) principles (Wilkinson et al, 2016) for the complete data sets.…”
