iGMT: Interactive Mapping of Geoscientific Datasets
Compatibility issues: Porting iGMT to OS X and Windows
Since iGMT is based on Tcl/Tk and other open source software, porting
the program to different hardware platforms (workstation, PC, Mac,
Palm Pilot) should be easy. In principle. The reality is more like:
Use it on UNIX, doesn't matter what flavor. (The same is actually more
or less true for GMT, by the way.)
Apple OS X
Yes, iGMT works on OS X. We are told that iGMT works fine with the
Tcl/Tk package that comes with Alpha, for example. People generally
seem to able to set up iGMT following the instructions we provide with
the distribution, while starting iGMT from an xterm appears to be
better than calling it from a regular terminal. Here's a brief email from one of our users that
describes installation on Mac OSX.
This nice PDF screenshot was
contributed by Richard O'Connell and shows iGMT running on a TiBook
using OS X 10.2.3 and Apple's X11 (Orobor OSX works too).
we haven't set iGMT up under fink or some other automatic installer
yet, sorry. Any volunteers?
Please see our notes on Microsoft Windows page.
