Short summary
We demonstrate a new method that enhances our ability to interpret large datasets commonly used in the earth sciences, including point clouds and rasters. Implemented as plugins for CloudCompare and QGIS, we use a least-cost-path solver to track structures and contacts through data, allowing for expert-guided interpretation in a way that seamlessly utilises computing power to optimise the interpretation process and improve objectivity and consistency.
