Description Orion uses satellite images or aerial photographs together with gridded topographic data to help you compute the structural attitude of geological strata or other planar structures. The program calculates the attitude from three or more points selected by point-and-click for a lithological contact or fault surface seen in the image. Reads image files in a variety of formats (TIFF, GeoTIFF, JPEG, Windows BMP, PCX, PNG, Targa TGA); reads elevation data in BIL format (with HDR header). It computes the best-fit plane through selected points and shows the fitting statistics with their confidence limits for the current set of points. View the fitted surface trace across the image. Add, delete and move the selected points to obtain the best fit possible, then save the measurements. View the computed plane attitudes projected on a customizable stereonet. Perform basic structural analysis on the results by computing the principal directions of the fitted planes and contouring their density distribution. Annotate the image with text, structural symbols, decorated lines and filled polygons to produce geological maps. Save the images and plots as bitmap files. Save the computations as a table of results. Print the images, plots or table of results. Save your project for further work.
