psvelo reads data values from files [or standard input] and generates PostScript code that will plot velocity arrows on a map. Most options are the same as for psxy, except -S. The PostScript code is written to standard output. The previous version (psvelomeca) is now obsolete. It has been replaced by psvelo and psmeca.
files List one or more file-names. If no files are given, psvelo will read standard input. -J Selects the map projection. Scale is UNIT/degree, 1:xxxxx, or width in UNIT (upper case modifier). UNIT is cm, inch, or m, depending on the MEASURE_UNIT setting in .gmtdefaults4, but this can be overridden on the command line by appending c, i, or m to the scale/width value. When central meridian is optional, default is center of longitude range on -R option. Default standard parallel is the equator. For map height, max dimension, or min dimension, append h, +, or - to the width, respectively. More details can be found in the psbasemap man pages.

Append r if lower left and upper right map coordinates are given instead of w/e/s/n. The two shorthands -Rg and -Rd stand for global domain (0/360 and -180/+180 in longitude respectively, with -90/+90 in latitude). Alternatively, specify the name of an existing grid file and the -R settings (and grid spacing, if applicable) are copied from the grid. -S Selects the meaning of the columns in the data file and the figure to be plotted. -Sevelscale/confidence/fontsize. Velocity ellipses in (N,E) convention. Vscale sets the scaling of the velocity arrows. This scaling gives inches (unless c, i, m, or p is appended). Confidence sets the 2-dimensional confidence limit for the ellipse, e.g., 0.95 for 95% confidence ellipse. Fontsize sets the size of the text in points. The ellipse will be filled with the color or shade specified by the -G option [default transparent]. The arrow and the circumference of the ellipse will be drawn with the pen attributes specified by the -W option. Parameters are expected to be in the following columns: 1,2 longitude, latitude of station (-: option interchanges order) 3,4 eastward, northward velocity (-: option interchanges order) 5,6 uncertainty of eastward, northward velocities (1-sigma) (-: option interchanges order) 7 correlation between eastward and northward components 8 name of station (optional). -Snbarscale. Anisotropy bars. Barscale sets the scaling of the bars This scaling gives inches (unless c, i, m, or p is appended). Parameters are expected to be in the following columns: 1,2 longitude, latitude of station (-: option interchanges order) 3,4 eastward, northward components of anisotropy vector (-: option interchanges order) -Srvelscale/confidence/fontsize Velocity ellipses in rotated convention. Vscale sets the scaling of the velocity arrows. This scaling gives inches (unless c, i, m, or p is appended). Confidence sets the 2-dimensional confidence limit for the ellipse, e.g., 0.95 for 95% confidence ellipse. Fontsize sets the size of the text in points. The ellipse will be filled with the color or shade specified by the -G option [default transparent]. The arrow and the circumference of the ellipse will be drawn with the pen attributes specified by the -W option. Parameters are expected to be in the following columns: 1,2 longitude, latitude, of station (-: option interchanges order) 3,4 eastward, northward velocity (-: option interchanges order) 5,6 semi-major, semi-minor axes 7 counter-clockwise angle, in degrees, from horizontal axis to major axis of ellipse. 8 name of station (optional) -Swwedge_scale/wedge_mag. Rotational wedges. Wedge_scale sets the size of the wedges in inches (unless c, i, m, or p is appended). Values are multiplied by Wedge_mag before plotting. For example, setting Wedge_mag to 1.e7 works well for rotations of the order of 100 nanoradians/yr. Use -G to set the fill color or shade for the wedge, and -E to set the color or shade for the uncertainty. Parameters are expected to be in the following columns: 1,2 longitude, latitude, of station (-: option interchanges order) 3 rotation in radians 4 rotation uncertainty in radians -Sxcross_scale gives Strain crosses. Cross_scale sets the size of the cross in inches (unless c, i, m, or p is appended). Parameters are expected to be in the following columns: 1,2 longitude, latitude, of station (-: option interchanges order) 3 eps1, the most extensional eigenvalue of strain tensor, with extension taken positive. 4 eps2, the most compressional eigenvalue of strain tensor, with extension taken positive. 5 azimuth of eps2 in degrees CW from North.
No space between the option flag and the associated arguments. -A Arrow_width/Head_length/Head_width Size of arrow in inches. [Default is 0.03/0.12/0.09]. -B Sets map boundary annotation and tickmark intervals; see the psbasemap man page for all the details. -D Sigma_scale can be used to rescale the uncertainties of velocities (-Se and -Sr) and rotations (-Sw). Can be combined with the confidence variable. -Ffill Sets the color or shade used for frame and annotation. [Default is 0/0/0 (black)] -Efill Sets the color or shade used for filling uncertainty wedges (-Sw) or velocity error ellipses (-Se or -Sr). [If -E is not specified, the uncertainty regions will be transparent.] -Gfill Specify color (for symbols/polygons) or pattern (for polygons). Set the shade (0-255) or color (r/g/b) [Default is 0/0/0]. Optionally, specify -Gpicon_size/pattern, where pattern gives the number of the image pattern (1-90) OR the name of a icon-format file. icon_size sets the unit size in inches. To invert black and white pixels, use -GP instead of -Gp. See pspatterns for information on individual patterns. -H Input file(s) has header record(s). If used, the default number of header records is N_HEADER_RECS. Use -Hi if only input data should have header records [Default will write out header records if the input data have them]. Blank lines and lines starting with # are always skipped. -K More PostScript code will be appended later [Default terminates the plot system]. -L Draw lines. Ellipses and fault planes will have their outlines drawn using current pen (see -W). -N Do NOT skip symbols that fall outside the frame boundary specified by -R. [Default plots symbols inside frame only]. -O Selects Overlay plot mode [Default initializes a new plot system]. -P Selects Portrait plotting mode [Default is Landscape, see gmtdefaults to change this]. -U Draw Unix System time stamp on plot. By adding just/dx/dy/, the user may specify the justification of the stamp and where the stamp should fall on the page relative to lower left corner of the plot. For example, BL/0/0 will align the lower left corner of the time stamp with the lower left corner of the plot. Optionally, append a label, or c (which will plot the command string.). The GMT parameters UNIX_TIME, UNIX_TIME_POS, and UNIX_TIME_FORMAT can affect the appearance; see the gmtdefaults man page for details. The time string will be in the locale set by the environment variable TZ (generally local time). -V Selects verbose mode, which will send progress reports to stderr [Default runs "silently"]. -W Set pen attributes for velocity arrows, ellipse circumference and fault plane edges. [Defaults: width = 1, color = 0/0/0, texture = solid]. -X -Y Shift plot origin relative to the current origin by (x-shift,y-shift) and optionally append the length unit (c, i, m, p). You can prepend a to shift the origin back to the original position after plotting, or prepend r [Default] to reset the current origin to the new location. If -O is used then the default (x- shift,y-shift) is (0,0), otherwise it is (r1i, r1i) or (r2.5c, r2.5c). Alternatively, give c to align the center coordinate (x or y) of the plot with the center of the page based on current page size. -: Toggles between (longitude,latitude) and (latitude,longitude) input and/or output. [Default is (longitude,latitude)]. Append i to select input only or o to select output only. [Default affects both]. -c Specifies the number of plot copies. [Default is 1].
