Virtual Reality Model Language  (VRML) programs provide dynamic display of
three-dimensional shapes using VRML viewers and Internet browsers.

Below are a series of files portraying bedrock strata and fractures,some of which are water-bearing
features in bedrock aquifers. These images and VRML files were genrated as part of NJ Geological
Survey fractured-bedrock aquifer research. For more information regarding these data and methods
contact greg.herman@dep.state.nj.us.

Click on a link below for a zip file containing the VRML scenes.
Once the zip file contents is extracted to a directory, click on
scene1.wrl.

You must have a VRML viewer installed such as the Octaga player to view the WRL files in
3D .
