Multiple scanned regional cross sections (eg those accompanying geological
survey 1:250,000 interpretive geology maps) can be easily displayed correctly
located in 3D, provided they are accompanied by a table of polylines tracing the
X/Y extent of each cross section.

Exercise 5.5

Create and display multiple georeferenced regional cross sections in 3D

Data Location: Training 3D\ Geology\Regional Cross Sections


Drag and drop the FactGeol_DTM.egb into the 3D window. This represents
the fact geology in zone 54 of South Australia (data courtesy of PIRSA).


Open the CrossSection_Extents.TAB file into MapInfo as both a browser and
a map window. This table contains multiple polylines representing the spatial
extents of 9 scanned regional cross-sections, as contained within the data
directory. Note that each polyline has the following information: a section
name (directly referencing a PNG image file), a top and a bottom RL value.
These fields are compulsory for the process to function correctly.


Select the Discover 3D>3D Utilities>Multi Section Creator to open this


Ensure that the various dialog boxes are populated as below. Note that the
Format option indicates the source image type, in this case PNG images.
This tool can only process one image type at a time. The type option
controls whether a single EGB file is created for all sections, or whether a
separate EGB file is created for each section. Click OK.


Browse in Windows Explorer to the output directory, and drag the newly
created crosssection_extents.egb into the 3D window.
