A brief introduction to block diagrams, including the definition, application and benefits. Some free editable block diagram examples are available.

What is Block Diagram?

A block diagram is a chart or diagram using labeled blocks connected by lines or arrows to represent the relationship of parts or phases, as the steps in a data-processing application. From the geology perspective, it is a perspective representation of the geology of an area showing surface contours and generally including two vertical cross sections. In this article, we focus on the first definition.
