Volcanofit 2.0: Example of volcanoid
solid of revolution




VOLCANOFIT 2.0.1 is a Full Freeware Software available for the scientific community.
The aim of this software is to identify departures from
the actual DEM of a volcano in shape or volume with respect to an ideal 3D surface. The authors believe that identification of these anomalies is important to understand the evolution of the edifice; an important tool for volcanic risk scenario analysis, particularly for sector collapse events.
VOLCANOFIT 2.0.1 performs a non-linear fitting
of the actual volcano DEM to an ideal 3D surface, with some constraints determined by the selected type of "Volcanoid" surface.

The latest VOLCANOFIT 2.0.1 package  can be downloaded in this page. The package contains also the input data for application at Volcan de fuego Colima, as shown in Borselli et al. (2011):
