Eighth tutorial: Write An Article or a Presentation

Articles and Presentations are the way to organize your studies and results for other people. Articles help you to organize your information while having access to your geological objects, including 3D visualizations, maps and cross sections. To create or edit an article go to the top of your study and click Open the Articles Manager. A first article will appear called Abstract. This is the first article of your study and will appear in both the maps of the front page and the studies page. By default, it will have the name of your study and the description, plus a cross sections and map visualization.

You can create new articles, and also new slideshows. In the following video you will be able to view all the steps required to create an article or a slideshow in Geomodelr.

The following is a basic set of commands for markdown that you can use as a mini tutorial.

Markdown basics:

Paragraphs in markdown are just one or more consecutive lines of text. Consecutive lines are considered spaces while two sets of lines separated by a new line are considered different paragraphs.

Markdown:

This is a paragraph 
consisting of several lines.
The new lines here are
considered spaces.

The blank line will start
a new paragraph.

Result:

This is a paragraph consisting of several lines. The new lines here are considered spaces.

The blank line will start a new paragraph.


In markdown you can write a header with the symbol # for the main header ## for a secondary header, up to #####. That way you can organize the titles, sections and subsections like this.

Markdown:

# A title
## A section
### A sub section
##### A sub sub section
###### A sub sub sub section

Result:

A title

A section

A sub section

A sub sub section
A sub sub sub section

You can also create lists with *, + or -; you can create ordered lists with 1. and even tables.

Markdown:

* An item.
* Another item.


1. First item.
2. Second item.

Table head 1st column | Table Head 2nd column
--- | ---
1st table row 1st column | 1st table row 2nd column
2nd table row 1st column | 2nd table row 2nd column

Result:

  • An item.
  • Another item.
  1. First item.
  2. Second item.
Table head 1st column Table Head 2nd column
1st table row 1st column 1st table row 2nd column
2nd table row 1st column 2nd table row 2nd column

Links can be inserted using the syntax [Link Title](link).

Markdown:

[Geomodelr](http://www.geomodelr.com)

Result:

Geomodelr

Images can be inserted using a similar syntax ![Image Title](link).

Markdown:

![Geomodelr's Logo](https://www.geomodelr.com/static/studies/img/geomodelr_en.png)

Result:

Geomodelr's Logo


This article does not cover the entire markdown syntax however, there are several websites on the internet that cover it, for example: This markdown tutorial.

Markdown extensions in Geomodelr.

Geomodelr's markdown allows you to introduce objects from the geological study. It also allows you to link to other articles and images.

The syntax for linking articles and images is the same as the markdown syntax, but instead of writing the full link, you can write [Abstract of Demo](article:Demo Study/Abstract). This links to article Abstract in Study Demo Study. If the article belongs to the same study the article you are writing is in, you can omit the first part of the link like this: [Abstract of Demo](article:Abstract).

Markdown:

[Abstract of Demo](article:Demo Study/Abstract)

Result:

Abstract of Demo


An Image is a PNG or JPG file you have uploaded or created in Geomodelr. You can link to that image using the syntax of a normal image, but instead of finding the url for the image, you can use it with the following syntax: ![Image of Demo](image:Demo Study/Hillshade.png). This will include the image in your article. If the image belongs to the same study the article is in, it's not necessary to use the first part, like this: ![Image of Demo](image:Hillshade.png).

Markdown:

![Image of Demo](image:Demo Study/Hillshade.png)

Result:

Image of Demo


You can also include objects from the study, like cross sections, visualizations and maps. To do this, you can use the following syntax:

  1. To include the base map of the study, use [[basemap:Demo Study]].
  2. To include a cross section of the study, use [[section:Demo Study/A Cross Section]]
  3. To include the default visualization of the study, use [[model3d:Demo Study]]
  4. To include a visualization created for the study, use [[visual3d:Demo Study/A Visualization]]

If you are writing an article for the study that contains the objects, you might omit the first part like this: [[basemap]], [[section:A Cross Section]], [[model3d]] and [[visual3d:A Visualization]].

Markdown:

#### The model Base Map

[[basemap:Demo Study]]

#### One of the model's Cross Section 

[[section:Demo Study/Mid Interpolation]]

#### The 3D default visualization of the model

[[model3d:Demo Study]]

#### Another 3D visualization of the model

[[visual3d:Demo Study/Block visual]]

Result:

The model Base Map

One of the model's Cross Section

The 3D default visualization of the model

Another 3D visualization of the model
