KIMELEON is an interactive colorlith plot applet, which was created to allow the user the ability to interact with the digital LAS data from purely a visual sense. This web tool was created to assist the geologist in analyzing regions of the subsurface to better understand the geology. The digital LAS Log curves are combined in different means to produce color image tracks, by changing the magnitude ranges of the colorlith tracks the geologist can bring out more subtle variances in the data and hence a better understanding of the region of interest. The user can create Portable Network Graphics (PNG) images of the displayed plots.
