GPlates is an interactive plate-tectonics visualisation program. GPlates enables interactive visualisation and manipulation of the plate-tectonic reconstructions of geological and paleo-geographic features through geological time.
Mantle temperature isosurface with semi-transparent deviation window
Cross sections through the mantle temperature scalar field coloured by isovalue (temperature) with topological plate boundaries overlaid on top
Surface relief shaded of the General Bathymetric Chart of the Ocean (GEBCO) raster using itself as the relief map
Map view of the classic "Blue Marble" bathymetry and topography raster reconstructed using present day static polygons and an age grid
The Fugro Tellus Basins dataset, visualised in GPlates with the new Filled Polygons layer option
Using the cookie-cutter tool, GPlates can assign Plate IDs to the Fugro Tellus Basins dataset, and display them along with a reconstructed topography raster
