PaleoGIS Adds Data Deformation Capability

PaleoGIS Adds Deformation of User Data

Rothwell announces innovative new functionality for end users and plate model vendors.

Start Exploring graphic
Paleo reconstructions performed with rigid plate models inherently have gaps and overlaps between plates. For many tectonic reconstruction exercises, this may not measurably impact analysis results. However, for paleo geographies where plates have been significantly stretched due to rifting or compacted during collisions, the limitations of rigid models may make the reconstructions insufficiently accurate for the task at hand.

Continuing in its position as the industry standard in plate tectonics reconstruction, the next release of PaleoGIS will include new deformation functionality for plate models configured to take advantage of this capability. Reconstruction with these models will automatically deform both plates and user data to their relative paleo shapes, providing a more comprehensive structural visualization of basin evolution.

News & Announcements graphic
Existing deformation methods require plate modelers to include deformation information within the model’s “cookie cutter” layer, potentially creating the need to support both rigid and deformable versions of their models. In the upcoming release of PaleoGIS (version 4.3 for ArcGIS 10.3 and 10.3.1) deformation control is added as separate feature classes within the model database, thereby allowing the same model to be used for applications that may or may not require deformation. Further, this method provides fine-grain control of the

deformation process, allowing multiple deformation events for individual plates at different ages. Notably, rigid models will remain supported with no change in format, and end users who prefer to make their own plate edits will have the ability to add deformation to their existing rigid plate models.

As with existing versions, PaleoGIS v4.3 will support most commercial and academic plate models. Please contact Sales@RothwellGroup.com for more information.

PALEOMAP Project’s First Annual Sponsors Meeting: Plate Tectonics, Paleogeography and Paleoclimatology

Rothwell is pleased to share with you information about a special upcoming event: Plate model vendor-partner PALEOMAP Project will host its first PALEOMAP Sponsors Meeting on May 16, 2015, in Chicago, Illinois. According to PALEOMAP Project Director Chris Scotese, this meeting will become an annual event.

PALEOMAP Project is a recognized authority in providing important maps and data that illustrate the plate tectonic development of ocean basins and continents, as well as the changing distribution of land and sea during the past 1100 million years. In addition to supplying a global plate tectonics model for use with PaleoGIS and a set of paleogeographic maps for use with Rothwell’s PaleoClimate™ software program, PALEOMAP Project offers an independent set of plate tectonic, paleogeographic and paleoclimatic maps as ArcGIS shapefiles and MXDs.

PALEOMAP Project, Christopher R. Scotese graphicFor more information about either the PALEOMAP Sponsors Meeting or PALEOMAP Project research, please contact Dr. Scotese, at cscotese@gmail.com. Members of the Rothwell team will attend the May meeting in Chicago, where we’ll offer demonstrations of and share insights about our Paleo products. We hope to see you there!
