A new workflow covering from data acquisition of outcrops with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) to subsurface seismic data interpretation and characterization as an integrated solution is presented here. This novel workflow aims at reducing the time spent on interpretation and integration of surface analogues into reservoir characterization studies while increasing quality, productivity and saving cost. The adoption of such workflow will open new exploration and development opportunities through geological modeling, integrating outcrops and modern analogues data along with conventional geophysical measurements of the subsurface. Furthermore, this workflow provides a step towards geological expert systems-based interpretation processes that can be applied into a live data ecosystem.
