I'm wondering if there is any interest in a SlackBuild for The Generic Mapping Tools (GMT) (see http://gmt.soest.hawaii.edu
). If so, I will prepare a SlackBuild for GMT and its required library, netCDF
From the GMT web page,
The Generic Mapping Tools, GMT, is an open source collection of ~60 tools for manipulating geographic and Cartesian data sets (including filtering, trend fitting, gridding, projecting, etc.) and producing Encapsulated PostScript File (EPS) illustrations ranging from simple x-y plots via contour maps to artificially illuminated surfaces and 3-D perspective views. GMT supports ~30 map projections and transformations and comes with support data such as GSHHS coastlines, rivers, and political boundaries. GMT is developed and maintained by Paul Wessel and Walter H. F. Smith with help from a global set of volunteers, and is supported by the National Science Foundation. It is released under the GNU General Public License.
And, from the netCDF web page,
NetCDF (network Common Data Form) is a set of software libraries and machine-independent data formats that support the creation, access, and sharing of array-oriented scientific data.
There are a set of examples at the GMT web page that show some of the capabilities of this application.
