Using physical clay models scientists can study tectonic processes that take millions of years to occur naturally. The use of these physical models is not widespread because their construction and analysis is commonly labor-intensive work that yields largely qualitative information. Through the use of PhotoModeler the authors demonstrate the measurement of these models in an automated and highly quantitative manner.
