All partners were active throughout in communication and dissemination of the 3DTeLC project, either between the members of 3DTeLC or with the outside world. Integrated internal communication has been achieved and the external publicity for the project and the results has been very broad, exceeding the expectations expressed in the proposal.

Below, each element of internal and external project dissemination is given;


The project has led to peer reviewed publications as follows;

Antoniou, V., Bonali, F., Nomikou, P., ,Tibaldi, A., Melissinos, P., Mariotto, F. Vitello, F., Krokos, M. and Whitworth, M. (2020) Integrating Virtual Reality and GIS Tools for Geological Mapping, Data Collection and Analysis: An Example from Metaxa Mine, Santorini (Greece). Applied Sciences, 10(23), 8317.

Tibaldi, A., Bonali, F. L., Vitello, F., Becciani, U., Krokos, M., Nomikou E., Delage, E., Van Wyk de Vries, B. and Whitworth, M. (2020) Real world-based immersive Virtual Reality for research, teaching and communication in volcanology. Bulletin of Volcanology 38.

Rust, D. and Whitworth, M. (2019) A unique 12 ka subaerial record of rift-transform triple-junction tectonics, N.E. Iceland. Scientific Reports, 9:9669.

The project is also planning one more technical paper (led by Mel Krokos and Ugo Becciani) and one focusing on the skills audit (WP1) led by Paul Wright and Malcolm Whitworth. These are in preparation and will be submitted in early 2021. Other publications are in planning stage for the Journal of Structural Geology Special Issue: Virtual and Digital Structural Geology and Geoscience Communication (EGU journal).


Each partner has been active throughout the project individually and collectively to disseminate the project's advances. This has been done at a local, laboratory or company level, at an institutional level, and to external areas, locally, nationally and globally.

Social Media

The Facebook page contain events on the summer schools, advances in the intellectual outputs and news about the models, VR features and natural Hazards. As with the Website, this was slow to start, as activities needed to be done for it to have material. For the last two years, this has been regularly updated with features, either directly on the site or tagged by associated participants on their own sites. More than 50 videos from the project including intellectual outputs are also available on Youtube.
