Short summary
Virtual 3D models are becoming fundamental to support field-based geoscience, with drones and image-based modelling providing rapid workflows for generating 3D datasets for mapping and education. Here, we present V3Geo, a cloud-based repository to facilitate 3D model searching, reuse, sharing and visualisation. We highlight the potential value of V3Geo for the geoscience community with examples of scenarios in publication and teaching where the repository is already being employed.
