I would like to create a 3d unstructured grid based on data points with xyz and property. Can Python do this and what tools?
My question is quite generic but i can provide more details: the data has easting and northing in UTM coordinates, elevation in masl, and a property value that i define based on soil type which i assign a permeability value or a particle size (ultimately, i would like to interpolate both). the dataset has about 5000 points for approx 1000 boreholes, so 5 points on average per borehole.

As each borehole has a different number of soil intervals, i think the best is to use an unstructred grid so that the top of soil elevation are respected at each borehole thanks f

  • $\begingroup$ i have a data set of 5000 records with coordinates xy and elevation z, and a property k. i would like to creat a 3d mesh (unstructured) with a node at every data points. The data points are geological contacts on boreholes. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Hi fanfanGis, welcome to SE. There are a number of tools out there for producing unstructured grids. If you can give a bit more context and detail (what is this grid for? What problem are you trying to solve? What have you tried already?), you might get more helpful answers. $\endgroup$ Sep 29 '18 at 20:21

    $\begingroup$ FanfanGis, put everything you answer in comments also in your question, please - comments can disappear and the question should contain all necessary information. You can than also fix your typos. $\endgroup$
