I have developed a method for easily displaying reflection cross sections, geological cross sections, and columnar charts in three dimensions, and created a program to realize them. A three-dimensional display was realized by automatically converting location information into polygon data and pasting prepared images as a texture. The procedures to visualize in three-dimensional display are summarizing location information in text, preparing images, and executing the program. The data can be viewed on Google Earth, which is available free of charge. The program is published on the web free of charge (, and there are few restrictions on viewing, so please use it to organize data, share with persons concerned and for outreach.
