Creating a first pass interpolant

This video continues on from part 2 of building a geological model in Leapfrog.

The process outlined in this video is simplified – the idea of this blog post is to give an understanding of the speed and ease of creating a first pass interpolant which can then be refined to give a more reasonable model.

You won’t hear any narration in this video but captions have been provided to explain the basic steps. If you’re after a more detailed description of the model building process then please contact your local support team.

We recommend you view this video in full screen mode. It may take approximately 30 seconds after you press play to switch to High Definition (given your internet connection allows it).

The main steps in this video include:

  • Viewing the assay data
  • Using some of the visualisation options to gain a basic understanding of the trend
  • Creating an interpolant model
  • Adjusting some basic parameters to get a more realistic model.

If you missed the previous videos in the model building series you can view Part 1 or Part 2 on this blog.
