MOVE is the core application of the MOVE suite by Midland Valley. It provides a powerful platform for data integration, cross-section construction and 3D model building. It forms the base for the specialist structural modules for 2D and 3D Kinematic Modelling. It provides an environment which integrates geo-referenced 2D and 3D views that allowing one to combine over 100 different data formats. It can be utilized to construct geologically valid cross-sections and 3D models from manual and automated tools. This 2D/3D space provides a best practice environment to develop models, which can then be directly tested and validated using the kinematic modules. Orientation plots, cross plots, stereonets, rose diagrams and object property tables can then be used to thoroughly investigate and analyse the model and construction process.

This is a five day Advanced course in structural modelling using MOVE Software (Midland Valley). 3D and 4D Modelling techniques; Restoration and balancing of cross sections; 3D and forward modelling. The objective of the course is to obtain an overview on 3D and 4D modelling techniques of tectonic structures using the software package Move. The course is an advanced training in kinematic modelling including section restoration and balancing, and model validation methods.
