Description:

This is a sequence of two labs on spherical projections and orientation data analysis. The first lab in the semester introduces data formats for lines and planes (strike, dip, trend, plunge, etc.). Spherical geometry is emphasized and projections and terms are defined. Students solve basic problems using Schmidt nets. The second lab, later in the semester, uses the computer program Orient to examine properties of projections and learn advanced concepts such as eigenvectors, data rotation, contouring, and importing of graphs to Adobe Illustrator, LibreOffice, MS Word, and other programs for presentation.
