NAME

       GMT - The Generic Mapping Tools data processing and display software package

INTRODUCTION

       GMT  is  a  collection  of  public-domain Unix tools that allows you to manipulate x,y and
       x,y,z data sets (filtering,  trend  fitting,  gridding,  projecting,  etc.)   and  produce
       PostScript  illustrations ranging from simple x-y plots, via contour maps, to artificially
       illuminated surfaces and 3-D perspective views in  black/white  or  full  color.   Linear,
       log10,  and  power  scaling  is  supported  in addition to 25 common map projections.  The
       processing and display routines within GMT are completely  general  and  will  handle  any
       (x,y) or (x,y,z) data as input.

SYNOPSIS

       GMT is also a wrapper script that can start any of the programs:

       GMT module module-options

       where  module  is the name of a GMT program and the options are those that pertain to that
       particular program.

GMT OVERVIEW

       The following is a summary of all  the  programs  supplied  with  GMT  and  a  very  short
