Using three-dimensional visualization of the earth model as a foundation, a new IT development strategy focuses on perceiving "Drilling Learning" by an intuitive method. Symbols, known as "Knowledge Attachments" are attached to each wellbore trajectory displayed in the three-dimensional environment, with each symbol indicating a specific event- such as one related to drilling operations or problems. It proves particularly useful to represent this disparate data at once, and in such a manner that the interdependencies between the earth model and drilling operations data are evident and correlated.
