Abstract(s) :

(Anglais) For a geologist, time in the field is mostly focused on collecting as much relevant data as possible. We attempted to develop a workflow that can implement an interactive approach where a model and a map can be generated using existing open-source geological modelling tools. Several scripts were combined to provide a coherent workflow fit-for-purpose to a field geologist with time limitations allowing to refine the model and map alongside the field data collection. The scripts rely on the folium package for mapping and GemPy for intrinsic interpolation model generation and vtk/Paraview for 3D visualization and manipulation. This approach may have strong impact on data collection decisions - especially in regions with sparse geological knowledge, making model updates on the fly and providing new insights into data-model sensitivities and relationships.
