GMT Mapping Tools

Installing GMT Mapping tools onto Ubuntu.

Thankfully it exists as a package so you can grab it via apt-get.  I suggest grabbing the tutorial and examples at the sametime.

Ok, now lets try and run a test. Create the following in a file called linproj.sh. Personally I have a folder called GMTplotting for this file but you may prefer to arrange it differently.

You can now run this script using ./linproj.sh providing it has executable rights if not just type chmod +x linproj.sh.

Now if you are running certain flavours of unix you will get an error telling you that psbasemap: command not found. This is normal – just add GMT before psbasemap.

The second test is to try

Have fun!!
