Interactive Mapping of Geoscientific Datasets
Entry ID: IGMT


Summary
Abstract: The Interactive Mapping of Geoscientific Datasets (iGMT) program is intended to make working with the Generic Mapping Tools (GMT) easier. iGMT provides a graphical user interface for GMT and is written in the Tcl/Tk computer language. Besides supplying a user friendly way of handling GMT, iGMT comes with built-in support for many different geoscientific data sets, such as topography, gravity, seafloor age, hypocenter catalogs, plate boundary files, hotspot lists, CMT solutions etc.

The software is a useful tool for learning GMT, taking advantage of both GMT's data processing capabilities and the increasing availability of geoscientific data sets in electronic form. More than 200 institutions world wide are registered iGMT users, using the program for map-making and teaching GMT.
