Transcript

  • 1. PaleoGIS: Overview and Update Karen Meinstein, Sales Engineer
  • 2. What is PaleoGIS?  A GIS application that performs spatial analyses of plate tectonic motion over time  Provides fast, easy-to-use, dynamic plate-tectonic reconstructions  An industry standard software package - Used by most of the world's largest global oil, gas and mineral exploration companies  Operates on ESRI's ArcMAP platform as a fully integrated extension
  • 3. Reconstructions  "Reconstruct" plate models to any specified age within the model's range  Reconstruct any user data to the desired age - Visualize vector and raster data in a paleogeographic context  “Un-reconstruct” data from known paleo-location to present day position Present Day 80 MYA
  • 4. Animations  Create high-quality animations for use in presentations and other media
  • 5. Analysis Tools  Includes tools for performing specialized plate motion analyses: - Point Path Visualization and Azimuth & Rate vs. Time - show a plate’s direction and speed over time - Instantaneous Motion - shows relative plate motion at a specified age  Custom analysis solutions available on a consulting basis
  • 6. Plate Models  PaleoGIS is compatible with major commercial and academic published plate models - Provides a unified platform for plate tectonic analysis  Supports rigid and deformable models  Supports plate-model-vendor time slices  Includes tools for plate model editing and development
  • 7. Upcoming Releases  PaleoGIS v4.2.1 - Compatible with ArcGIS 10.1 - Currently in Beta testing - Release date: End of Q4 2013  PaleoGIS v4.2.2 - Compatible with ArcGIS 10.2 - Release date: Q1 2014 Note: v4.2.x requires Dot Net Framework 4.0, which is available as a free download
  • 8. New Raster Method  Converts raster to point feature class and then reconstructs the points  Raster is re-sampled to user-specified resolution before conversion  Converts reconstructed points back to a single raster
  • 9. New Raster Method  Works on rasters that cover large areas, including global rasters  Provides results that are consistent with vector reconstructions  Accepts all coordinate systems, not just WGS 84  Old method is still available
  • 10. New Raster Method Raster size = 798 MB, Cell size = 0.017 x 0.017 degrees
  • 11. New Raster Method Resampled to 1% of original resolution (cell size = 0.17 x 0.17 degrees)
  • 12. Un-Reconstruct Improvements  Rasters now supported! - Allows scanned images to be un-reconstructed  Results can be saved by saving the reconstruction data frame that contained the original layer  Original symbology (vector and raster) is preserved
  • 13. Other New Features  New data frame added when models are loaded - Existing layers are no longer removed from map  All user settings are persisted between sessions  One-click enable/disable of proxy server settings - Simplifies work environment transitions  Ability to change output name when saving reconstructions  Two updated demo models - Scotese Model v2d3 - Earthbyte (Seton 2012)
  • 14. Other New Features  Ability to change feature symbology based on age using time-dependent joins  PaleoClimate launcher added to Analysis Tools toolbar  Assorted bug fixes including: - Ability to save reconstructions that contain time slices - WMS time slice layers are only added to map once - Undo/Redo functions work correctly for Enter Pole tool
