2D Kinematic Modelling Module for Move

Our 2D modelling algorithms for restorations remove deformation to reassemble the un-deformed state, adhering to line length and area balancing structural geology principles, taking into account the importance of geological time and its impact on the structure of today.

The 2D model building tools and restoration algorithms are delivered through the Move application with the 2D Kinematic Modelling module.  We provide the complete range of tools to build, balance, restore and analyse cross-sections at a local and regional scale.
