VIDL Network is focused learning about Applied Science, a discipline of science that applies existing scientific knowledge to develop more practical applications, like technology or inventions.

Within natural science, disciplines that are basic science, also called pure science, develop information to predict and perhaps explain—thus somehow understand—phenomena in the natural world. Applied science applies science to real world practice.

The VIDL Network courses, projects and databases are grouped into six categories for easy understanding and navigation.

These groups are: Potential Fields, Environmental, Gradiometry, Basement Structure, G&G Applications and Support Topics. Each of these categories is explained in more detail on the category pages. For easy access you can click on the category name above and go there directly. Potential Fields is where we started first, we are working on building out the other categories now.
