Has anyone used the British Geological Survey 'GSI-3D' terrain modelling software?
#1
I am considering purchasing the British Geological Survey terrain modelling software 'GSI-3D'. I am particularly interested in its claims to be especially 'intuitive', and, I guess therefore, easier for less experienced computer/GIS users to get to grips with. I am thinking of using it as a tool for introducing undergraduate students and inexperienced field archaeologists to the world of GIS-geekiness and terrain modelling...without having to burden them with the expense of ArcGIS or Surfer....

The demonstration (free to download) version is able to produce limited topographic extrapolations from recorded sections or profiles without the need for further topographic survey and the full programme seems to me to possibly have the potential to be an inexpensive evaluation tool. I wondered if any other BAJRites had used the programme and whether they would care to share opinions.

What career could I obtain with a geology major? I'm currently a biology major at the University of Minnesota Duluth, but I'm thinking about switching to a Geology major. A Biology major is a broad major and I could do a lot with it, but how broad is a geology major? What could I do with that career-wise?

He Rieditaa,...you might find this link interesting. The American Geological Institute makes starter packs available to students who are interested in pursuing careers in earth sciences. Its called GeoConnection I think.....

Knowing a few geologists, I would say it is an interesting subject, but like archaeology not the most secure career choice.....too many qualified persons chasing too few jobs!!
