In this presentation, we show the kinematic model and paleogeopgraphic maps produced by the Caribbean Basins, Tectonic and Hydrocarbons consortium (CBTH) using the software PaleoGIS. The paleogeographic maps are built using the plate model as a template in order to reproduce the location of facies through time by integrating all available data (e.g. well, outcrop, seismic, etc). A main focus in our model has been linking the on- and offshore by understanding the timing and filling of basins, subsidence patterns and detailed reconstruction of fault families (c.f. Escalona and Mann, 2011).
