Traditional 3D Block Modeling software has difficulty in handling gridded seam models where model extent in XY plane can be orders of magnitude larger than the Z-extent (e.g. phosphate or coal seam deposits) and hence a separate GSM based package is usually called for. With GeoModeler, this is no longer the case as both modeling schemes are supported simultaneously.
In addition to the hybrid modeling kernel, GeoModeler also sports a state-of-the-art Dynamic Anisotropy interpolation system that allows the search volume to be calibrated to follow the trend of the mineralization precisely. It is an ideal tool for preparing accurate resource estimates as input to subsequent mine design optimizations. To learn more about the DA system provided by GeoModeler, please refer to the following article
In summary, GeoModeler is a comprehensive geological software tool that natively supports both 3D Block Modeling with Sub-blocking and 2D Gridded Seam Modeling schemes with both implicit modelling (RBF) and explicit modelling (Kriging and Inverse Distance with Dynamic Anisotropy) techniques.
