Features

  • Load/save geological, geographic and tectonic feature data
  • Assign reconstruction/rotation poles to feature data by cookie-cutting with plate polygons
  • Reconstruct/rotate feature data (vector and raster data)
  • Visualize vector/raster data on a globe or in one of the map projections
  • Visualize sub-surface 3D scalar fields.
  • Export reconstructed data as a time-sequence of exported files
  • Query and edit feature properties and geometries
  • Modify reconstructions graphically
  • Use topological plate polygons (with deformation) to calculate velocity fields
