Methods to quantify deformation and reverse the process of strain as a mode to illustrate geologic evolution through time have been previously used for a number of decades. Early efforts on the quantification of bed reconstruction were completed either by manually weighing the sections on delicate balances and obtaining the average height and thickness of strata to be reconstructed by applying a scale factor (Chamberlin, 1910), or by hand-drafting sections with conserved bed length between the folded and faulted sedimentary layers, mainly in a 2D cross section (Bally et al., 1966; Dahlstrom, 1969) or map...
