GPlates workshop at EGU General Assembly

GPlates is a powerful, open-source plate tectonics reconstruction software program that runs on Mac, Windows and Linux platforms. Developed jointly by researchers at the University of Sydney, California Institute of Technology, CEED and NGU, GPlates allows for the generation and manipulation of plate reconstructions as well as the visualisation of a wide range of geodata through time and space. The recently released version 1.5 comes with enhanced kinematic tools.

Postdoctoral researcher Grace Shephard will be helping at an upcoming GPlates workshop at the EGU General Assembly 2015 being held in Vienna, 12-17th April. The workshop is scheduled for Monday evening (13th April) from 1800-2000h in room B3.
