This is a handbook of practical techniques for making the best possible interpretation of geological structures at map scale and for extracting the maximum amount of information from surface and subsurface maps. The 3-D structure is defined by internally consistent structure contour maps and cross sections of all horizons and faults.

A CD-ROM supplements the text in several ways. Text figures are reproduced in color and complete Tecplot models are provided for a number of representative figures.

The book is directed toward the professional user concerned about both the accuracy of interpretation and the speed with which it can be obtained from incomplete data. Quantitative methods are emphasized throughout, and numerous analytical solutions are given that can be implemented with a pocket calculator or a spreadsheet.

Interpretation strategies are defined for GIS or CAD users, yet can be done by hand allowing the production of better geological maps and cross sections, and more accurate interpretation.

The reorganized second edition more closely follows the typical interpretation workflow. New material includes examples of 3-D models and technique
