Web Resources and Tools for Geosciences

A membership-governed organization that supports and promotes Earth science by developing and maintaining software for computational geophysics and related fields.
A series of Interactive mapping tools for students (Quest), for research (GEOID), for geographic map generation (US Geology Explorer), earthquakes mapping, tectonic/geophysical modeling and 3-D visualization.
Providing chemical characterization of the Earth (GERM), promoting information technology infrastructures for the international paleomagnetic, geomagnetic and rock magnetic community (MagIC), bringing together seamount research to explore innovative ways for building a seamount cyberinfrastructure and, promoting, creating and publishing of enduring earth science education resources in collaboration between school teachers and earth scientists.
An integrated mapping application developed at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory as part of the Marine Geoscience Data System, providing data exploration and visualization tool that is continually in expansion. It is a Java™ application to be freely downloaded.
A free, open source collection of ~60 UNIX tools that allow users to manipulate (x,y) and (x,y,z) data sets (including filtering, trend fitting, gridding, projecting, etc.) and produce Encapsulated PostScript File (EPS) illustrations ranging from simple x-y plots through contour maps to artificially illuminated surfaces and 3-D perspective views in black and white, gray tone, hachure patterns, and 24-bit color. GMT supports 25 common map projections plus linear, log, and power scaling, and comes with support data such as coastlines, rivers, and political boundaries.
Provides a community-wide forum for researchers in the fields of mineralogy, petrology, geochemistry, structural geology, geophysics, geodynamics and tectonics.
