This web page contains information related to the PhD research done at the Department of Informatics at the University of Bergen.
As the name suggests the GeoIllustrator project deals with illustrative geology. During the project we will develop new and better ways to digitally model and illustrate geological data and geological concepts.
By using state of the art computer graphics and interaction hardware, GeoIllustrator will contribute novel ideas to the science field of visualization and computer graphics. Application for these new ideas
within geology will be many, for instance for expert-to-expert communication, for expert-to-layman communication, for interactive educational tools and for day-to-day modelling and visualisation within the
This is a 3 year PhD project and it started on January 1st 2010.
