In Chapter 3 we briefly discussed the generic requirements of the spatial analysis step of the geological characterization process. In a quantitative context these requirements are invariably concerned with volumes of one type or another and their contents in terms of variable values. The analytical volumes may be defined by geological boundaries, or an isosurface of a variable, or an excavation geometry, or various combinations of all of these. We briefly discuss the application of volume modeling techniques to excavation design at the end of this chapter, and accept for the moment that this is a viable process.
