Abstract: The sketching of geological features and objects played an important role in the development of the geosciences. Geological sketches may not be as commonly used for documentation purposes any longer, but may facilitate learning and understanding. By sketching geological features, the eye is trained to observe; this furthers understanding, and so improves study results.

Keywords: Sketches, documentation, history, geoscience, learning, understanding
