One of the many challenges in reservoir characterization is the problem of accurately defining, visualizing, and understanding spatial relationships between faults and structural horizons. With the use of new threedimensional geospatial modeling tools geologists, geophysicists, and engineers are able to build geologic models which can be used to verify data interpretations, spatial relationships, and internal geometries of complexly faulted reservoirs.

This paper briefly describes recently developed geospatial modeling technology and the process by which three-dimensional geologic models are constructed. Examples from various studies are presented.
