GMT is an open source collection of about 80 command-line tools for manipulating geographic and Cartesian data sets (including filtering, trend fitting, gridding, projecting, etc.) and producing PostScript illustrations ranging from simple x-y plots via contour maps to artificially illuminated surfaces and 3D perspective views; the GMT supplements add another 40 more specialized and discipline-specific tools.

Installed versions

There is just one version of GMT installed on environment hpc-uniol-env:


Using GMT on the HPC cluster

For GMT to be used, you have to load the module after logging in to the HPC node:
