About the Author
After four years of well-site work and regional subsurface mapping in Canada, Vic Loudon undertook three years of study for a PhD, exploring computer methods while mapping sedimentary and structural geology in Banffshire, Scotland. Six years of post-doctoral research on geological computer applications followed, at Northwestern University (Illinois), Reading University (England), and the Kansas Geological Survey. He moved to London in 1969 on being appointed by the British Geological Survey to initiate and to lead their Computer Unit. This highly active group was subsumed into the NERC Computer Service in 1978. He then transferred to BGS, Edinburgh to continue research on spatial models and their potential for a more integrated computer representation of geology. After retirement he continued work on these topics as a BGS Honorary Research Associate. A founder member and first treasurer of the International Association of Mathematical Geologists, he has contributed many papers on computer applications. He wrote two earlier books: Loudon, T.V., 1979. Computer methods in geology, Academic Press (London) ISBN: 0-12-456950-1 (Russian translation 1981). Loudon, T.V., 2000. Geoscience after IT: a view of the present and future impact of information technology on geoscience.
