geoSurfDEM: a C++ console application for determining intersections between 3D geological surfaces and topography
The determination of the theoretical intersections between digital 3D geological surfaces and topography could be of potential help for studying the field attitudes of natural geological surfaces, as mapped from outcrops or from aerial and satellite images. Since geological structures have complex geometries, the analysis of the relationships between 3D surfaces and topography requires tools that can process 3D geological surfaces.
