Royal Holloway Research Uses PaleoGIS

Reconstruction of India, Australia and Antarctica's breakup from Gondwana

Reconstruction of India, Australia and Antarctica’s Breakup from Gondwana

We are pleased to share with you a reconstruction animation created using PaleoGIS by Dr. Lloyd White of Royal Holloway, University of London’s Department of Earth Sciences (Royal Holloway). Dr. White included this reconstruction in his presentation at the The Roberts Conference: Passive Margins 2016 (Roberts Conference), held at Royal Holloway April 6–8. The conference explores the role of mechanisms such as “depth-dependant and differential stretching through the lithosphere, polyphase deformation, magmatic activity, and the interplay between structure and sedimentation in rift and passive margin development.” (See Event Details at GlobalEventsList.elselvier.com)

Dr. White’s presentation focused on the tectonic evolution of Gondwana and geological record of breakup along the Indian, Australian and Antarctic passive margins.

The plate model illustrated in the reconstruction was developed by Dr. White and follows work presented in White et al., (2013) “A reassessment of paleogeographic reconstructions of eastern Gondwana: Bringing geology back into the equation” published in Gondwana Research. The model was also presented by Dr. White at this year’s Roberts Conference at Royal Holloway.

Season’s greetings and happy new year!

PaleoGIS 4.2 and PaleoRun 1.0 for ArcGIS 10.1

We are pleased to announce that PaleoGIS 4.2 and PaleoRun 1.0 are now available.

PaleoGIS 4.2 features a new vector-based approach to raster reconstruction that improves reliability and performance. PaleoRun, a new product from The Rothwell Group, is a command line executable that enables users to run one or more PaleoGIS or PaleoClimate jobs in series from the command line. It exposes the most commonly used functions of PaleoGIS and PaleoClimate and provides some additional utility functions as well.

You can download the installation files from the PaleoGIS website: http://www.paleogis.com/dotnetnuke/Downloads/tabid/58/Default.aspx. If you are already a registered user on the website, login (click the “login” link in the upper right-hand corner) and then go to the Downloads tab. From the “Paleo Full Release Installation Files” section, download the installers by clicking on the “PaleoGIS v4.2.1.0 for ArcGIS 10.1” link or the “PaleoRun v1.0 for ArcGIS 10.1” link.

If you are not currently registered on the website, please register by clicking on the “Register” link in the upper right hand corner. After you have registered, we will be notified, at which time we will grant your account access to the installers on the Downloads tab. Until we have authorized your account, you will not be able to see the PaleoGIS Installation Files section.

NOTE: You must have ArcGIS 10.1 installed in order to use this software. PaleoGIS 4.2 and PaleoRun 1.0 will run on Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7 32- and 64-bit. It has not been tested on Windows 8.

PaleoGIS 4.2 New Features

  • New Vectorized Raster Reconstruction Algorithm
  • Flash feature on Pole Finder and Geneaologist
  • Layers not deleted from TOC when changing plate models or cache
  • Improved tooltip messages
  • Add option to ignore proxy server settings for use outside of firewall
  • Join functionality enhanced to support time-dependent symbology
  • Upgrade to .NET 4.0
  • Ability to save un-reconstruct results
  • Support for rasters with datums other than WGS84
  • Ability to unreconstruct Raster Reconstructions
  • PaleoClimate Launcher added to extensions list

PaleoGIS 4.2 Bug Fixes

  • Persistence of key configuration settings
  • Fixed stranded graphics with plate moving tools
  • Option to disable “Repair Features” functionality
  • Automatic refresh for session configuration settings
  • Perform intersect when refreshing cache for single layer
  • Improved error handling in pole set maintenance window
  • Changed default cache and scratch paths
  • Fixed Undo/Redo function for Enter Pole tool
  • Fixed crashing issue with 9.3.1 layer files
  • Ability to save reconstructions using time slices
  • Removed incorrect error in Plate Model Symbology when saving initial symbology
  • Apply original symbology to unreconstructed layers

PaleoRun 1.0 Features

  • Run reconstructions
  • Run multi-reconstructions
  • Run animations
  • Run azimuth and rate vs. time and point path visualization
  • Run instantaneous motion
  • Modify metadata
  • Add layers to a map document and symbolize
  • Dump the flat rot header
  • Execute a PaleoClimate run
  • Use outputs from one job as inputs to another

Some of the advantages of using PaleoRun include the ability to:

  • Script a series of jobs with DOS scripting tools
  • Run a series of jobs as a single batch
  • Schedule scripted jobs to run at regular intervals
  • Schedule long-running jobs overnight or over the weekend
  • Re-run job scripts many times
