iGMT is a Tcl/Tk software I developed with Alexander Braun and stands for "Interactive Mapping of Geoscientific Datasets". iGMT provides a graphical user interface for the generic mapping tools (GMT). Our program is used world-wide to map geoscientific data and to teach GMT. The most recent version of the software is available under a modified GNU public license here:

We accept bug reports, but the development is frozen, and the main iGMT project web site is outdated. However, it has a lot of additional documentation, data, and such.

A reference for iGMT is:
