The aim of this program is to allow integrated forward modelling of structures together with the resulting gravity and magnetic anomalies. The program enables the complex structure of a poly-deformed area to be calculated via a sophisticated 3-dimensional structural modelling procedure. This program allows a geoscientist armed with a reasonable understanding of the geology of an area to refine this understanding by interactive manipulation of the geometry and geophysical characteristics of a region.


Noddy has been developed with funding from the Australian Research Council, The Australian Geodynamics CRC, and the AMIRA group of sponsors (Aberfoyle Limited, AGSO, BHP Minerals, Billiton Ltd, North Limited, MIM Exploration Pty Ltd, Newcrest Mining Limited, Pasminco Exploration, RGC Exploration Pty Ltd, RTZ Limited, Mines and Energy of South Australia , Sumitomo Metal Mining Oceania Pty Ltd, Western Mining Corporation Ltd).
