Entry ID: Pplates


Summary
Abstract: The Tectonic Reconstruction Software allows the user to manipulate portions of the earth's crust by applying a triangular mesh over a 2D map of the present-day earth, adopting the topology, and then moving the crust by moving the whole mesh, or deforming it by moving individual mesh nodes. Additional capabilities are under development.
