Driven by the popularity of easily accessible desktop tools such as Google Earth and in-car satellite navigation systems, we are currently experiencing a global geospatial revolution. In parallel, many areas of geoscience now currently routinely use geographic information systems (GIS) software and geospatial data for the visualization and analysis of spatial data. Recent related developments in digital technologies are also heralding significant changes in the way we acquire, visualize, and analyze geological field data. These new methods have the potential to improve the geospatial analysis of earth systems, comparable to the way in which advances in geochronologic and chronostratigraphic methods...
