Traditionally, 3-D visualization is promoted as a premier strategy for interpreting stratigraphic plays. Many papers outline techniques such as amplitude detection and enhancement of stratigraphic features using opacity and color.

However, 3-D visualization tools are equally effective in structural provinces. It is possible to combine elements of visualization with elements of traditional interpretation in a hybrid approach, so that each method enhances the other. This paper concentrates on 3-D visualization methods that can speed up and enhance accuracy of structural interpretation.

A data set from Indonesia, dominated by dramatic trans-tensional faulting, is presented as an example. Extensional faulting also occurs...
