Prismatic grids are widely used for modeling of geological regions because they have a characteristic layered structure. However, geological layers can contain a lot of different inhomogeneities, which must be taken into account during constructing the grid model. The complex structure of inhomogeneities in different layers as well as the presence of underground technogenic objects in the region substantially complicate the task and requirements for grid generation. Approaches to automation of the geological and technogenic features data transformation to a format convenient for the further grids generation and also a technique of grids construction is presented in this work.
