Introduction
What does PaleoMac do?




Basically, PaleoMac handles 3 categories of data
 Directionnal data (DIR type) on the sphere. These maybe paleomagnetic vectors distributions, but any distribution of [Dec, Inc] of lines, or [Strike, Dip] of planes, with various parameters, can be handled as well
 Paleopoles data (VGP type) or any point on the Earth. Jointly, the application handles plate contours and rotation parameters, to produce paleoreconstructions.
 Demagnetization data (PMD type), which are typically sets of {X,Y,Z} magnetization components as a function of demag. steps.








Computations:








Graphics and graphic output in 2 formats: PICT and PostScript compatible with Adobe Illustrator (tested versions: 3.2, 5.5, 6.0 and 8.0).
 on DIR type data:
 on VGP type data:
 Earth projections (equal area, stereographic, orthographic, Mercator, Mollweide, HammerAitoff, Cylindrical Equivalent and Rectangular)
 Map zooming (equal area, stereographic, Mercator, and Lambert conical conformal projections)
 on PMD type data:
