3D Visualisation of Geophysical and Geological Data
Interactive Plate Tectonic Reconstructions
Interactive Surface Dynamic Topography
PyGPlates Reconstruction Services
GPlates web service interface allows users to access plate tectonics reconstruction services via Internet. The interface has been designed to provide paleo-geographic coordinates in a simplest way.
Examples of how the GPlates web service can be used in various environments. Theoretically, the service can be used in any devices which have implemented HTTP protocol and have Internet connection.
pyGPlates enables access to GPlates functionality via the Python programming language. It can be used to load geological data, reconstruct it to past geological times and export the results.

AuScope was designed to put Australia at the forefront of international geoscience and geospatial research and to create geoscience applications for the next generation. Its aim was to assist in building Australia's wealth through improved and sustainable discovery, development and management of our minerals, energy and groundwater assets. It provides a step-change in our ability to spatially map Australia's location and internal deformation, in particular enhancing our ability to contribute to natural hazard prediction and management, both here and for our immediate neighbours.
The University of Sydney is an Australian public research university in Sydney. Founded in 1850, it is Australia's first university and is regarded as one of its most prestigious. In 2015, it was ranked 45th in the QS World University Rankings. Additionally, Sydney graduates have been ranked the most employable in Australia and 14th most employable in the world, in the top 0.1%. Five Nobel and two Crafoord laureates have been affiliated with the university as graduates and faculty. Its campus is ranked in the top 10 of the world's most beautiful universities by the British Daily Telegraph and The Huffington Post, spreading across the inner-city suburbs of Camperdown and Darlington.
EarthByte is an internationally leading eGeoscience collaboration between several Australian Universities, international centres of excellence and industry partners. One of the fundamental aims of the EarthByte Group is geodata synthesis through space and time, assimilating the wealth of disparate geological and geophysical data into a four-dimensional Earth model including tectonics, geodynamics and surface processes. The EarthByte Group is pursuing open innovation via collaborative software development, high performance and distributed computing, "Big Data" analysis and by making open access digital data collections available to the community.
Caltech's Seismological Laboratory, an arm of the Division of Geological and Planetary Sciences (GPS), was established in 1921. It has a distinguished history of leadership in science and serving the public interest. Internationally recognized for excellence in geophysical research and academics and home to outstanding facilities in seismic networks, high performance computing, and mineral physics, the Seismo Lab is an ideal place for study and research. The Lab serves as a focal point for earthquake information in Southern California and the world.
