Hello All: Just a quick question. Has anyone ever used Mathematica and Generic Mapping Tools (GMT) together? I know there is the WorldPlot package, but I would like to incorporate fault lines, and data on a regional level, states, counties, etc. For example, plotting California and the San Andreas fault network is straightforward in GMT. Moreover, the datasets already exist. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Generic_Mapping_Tools I've not seen any similar functionality in Mathematica's WorldPlot. All the examples are colouring of countries in various projections. Frankly, not very useful for anyone other than a high school student. In effect, it behaves like a glorified geography course, but not ready for more accurate geodetic/geophysical research. A seemless way to incorporate GMT (and GMT datasets such as fault maps) would make a far more usefull application. Any pointers would be a huge help. Cheers, t.
