GeoMappApp

GeoMapApp

GeoMapApp is an open source, earth science exploration, global topography database, and visualization application that is continually being expanded as part of the Marine Geoscience Data System (MGDS) at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University.

GeoMapApp relies on the internet to access a rich content of information for physical oceanography, paleoclimates, geochemistry, geology, seabed sediment and rock compositions, ocean crust age, spreading rates, bathymetry, and sediment thickness. GeoMapApp is written in Java.
