V3Geo: cloud-based database of virtual 3D models
V3Geo is a purpose-built repository for sharing virtual 3D models within the geoscience community (Figure 8). The repository includes hundreds of high-quality virtual outcrop and other 3D geoscience models that have been uploaded and shared by the community. All public models are available under Creative Commons licenses and can be used in classrooms, publications, research, or as the basis of virtual field courses and excursions. A key advantage of V3Geo is the ability to handle large, multi-section 3D models, allowing high detail or extremely large areas to be stored without compromising on detail. A 3D web viewer can be used to browse the models online, while a connection to LIME is available for further annotation and presentation.
