Resumen (es_ES)

Se elaboró un modelo digital tridimensional (3D) de un afloramiento de rocas sedimentarias del Grupo Guadalupe en la Cordillera Oriental de Colombia, mediante la captura de imágenes aéreas utilizando un vehículo aéreo no tripulado (VANT), con el fin de realizar su caracterización estructural. Para esto, se usó un software especializado para el modelado e interpretación de información tridimensional. Se obtuvieron 62 datos estructurales, 30 de estos corresponden a estratificación, y 32 a familias de fracturas. Se encontró que la secuencia sedimentaria buza uniformemente hacia el occidente (253/59, dirección de buzamiento/buzamiento), y presenta tres familias de fracturas principales: familia 1 (335/84), familia 2 (153/63) y familia 3 (92/51). Este estudio demuestra la utilidad de aplicación de técnicas de percepción remota al campo de las geociencias.

Resumen (en_US)

A three-dimensional (3D) digital model of an outcrop of sedimentary rocks of the Guadalupe Group in the Eastern Cordillera of Colombia was elaborated, by capturing images of an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), in order to carry out its structural characterization. For this, specialized software was used for modelling and interpretation of three-dimensional information. 62 structural data were obtained, 30 of these corresponding to stratification, and 32 to sets of fractures. It was found that the sedimentary sequence dip uniformly towards the west (253/59, direction of dip / dip), and presents three sets of major fractures: set 1 (335/84), set 2 (153/63) and set 3 (92/51). This study demonstrates the usefulness of remote sensing techniques in the field of geosciences.
