Interpreting exploration data requires combining different types of information to solve the geologic puzzle. It implies bringing together all data components into an image that makes conceptual sense in terms of the geology of the exploration area. The identification of geologic objects and the inference of a spatial description of the lithology—consistent with all available information—are the objectives of the process.

The more information utilized, the more certain is the result of the inference. The interpretational process should serve to combine different types of geophysical data, petrophysical information on the rock properties, and information on the geology of the area....
