The iGMT documentation includes a description of the software dealing with installation and its usage, presents some simple example maps, and lists references to the datasets iGMT can process and the sources iGMT is based upon. (You might also want to refer to the iGMT project's Earth Science dataset collection and our notes on cross-platform compatibility.) A postscript version of this document comes with the full iGMT package. Alternatively, the manual can be downloaded in various formats below. Don't expect fancy prose or that every small detail is up to date. This is especially true for the manual of iGMT version 1.2.
Please also note that these web pages are by now somewhat outdated and are not constantly updated. However, UGESCE is:
/usr/local/src/igmt_1.2/, by typing
cd /usr/local/src/ gunzip -c igmt_v1.2-20051208.tar.gz | tar xv cd igmt_1.2 ./configure_scriptwhere the last step should make sure that the main paths are set properly.
/wrk/data/, it will expand into subdirectories that hold most of the data that is listed below.
Also see the makecpt colorschemes comparison chart (PDF) for the colorschemes that come with GMT's makecpt.
In addition, you might wish to refer to the article in EOS Transactions or T. W. Becker's December 2012 presentation on iGMT at USC.
