Of particular importance to the geologic community is the ability of computers to calculate surfaces, extrapolate the subsurface geometry of rock units, and exhibit the spatial distribution and intensity of related parameters such as rock chemistry. Methods and techniques that describe subsurface-bedded ore deposits are used to define lithologic units of interest, determine the geometries of these units by using computer-generated grids, document the spatial distribution and intensity of related attributes, and produce derivative products through the mathematical manipulation of these grids.

A collection of papers on computer-mapping case studies, this publication is a useful “go-by” for both beginners and advanced users of computer-mapping software. Fore the most part, the papers concentrate on the geologic features of significance to mapping, the methods used and their justification, and results obtained. The publication is separated into two parts. Part 1 consists of 12 papers dealing with data and surface modeling. Part 2 consists of 7 papers dealing with three-dimensional geologic block modeling.
