A third phase of investigation of the Peak Cavern Vestibule, using cutting-edge LIDAR total station equipment, obtained a 16.8 million co-ordinate data point cloud, which was re-sampled into a digitally-rendered, 3-D triangular surface model. Visualisation software allows dynamic viewing of the data model from any angle or orientation, with editing software allowing picking, interpretation and horizon generation of geological features of interest. Model analyses of surface 'en-echelon' joints reveal an anticlinal fold hinge mid-way through the Vestibule. Bedding planes were found to be sub-horizontal but parallel to the Vestibule main body axis.
