GeoVill: MECANISMO FOCAL: Como dibujar un mecanismo focal en 3D utilizando LaTeX

:Tags: 3D; Earth Sciences ; Geophysics; Seismology :Author: Cyril Langlois :Source: Adaptation for LaTeX of a figure proposed in P. Shearer's book 'Introduction to Seismology'. It shows the focal sphere with the fault plane and auxiliary plane (which can not be discriminate), limiting compression and dilatation quadrants, the first movement of the rock through the sphere, and the Pression and Tension axis. The figure is based on the sphere drawing's code proposed by J. \end{comment} %%%%%%%%%%% %% helper macros %: Styles for XYZ-Coordinate Systems %: isometric South West : X , South East : Y , North : Z \tikzset{isometricXYZ/.style={x={(-0.866cm,-0.5cm)}, y={(0.866cm,-0.5cm)}, z={(0cm,1cm)}}} A Carefully Selected List of Recommended Tools on Datavisualization.

When I meet with people and talk about our work, I get asked a lot what technology we use to create interactive and dynamic data visualizations.

A Carefully Selected List of Recommended Tools on Datavisualization

At Interactive Things, we have a set of preferred libraries, applications and services that we use regularly in our work. We will select the most fitting tool for the job depending on the requirements of the project. Sometimes a really simple tool is all you need to create something meaningful. On other occasions, a more multifaceted repertoire is needed. Explore Data Visualizations.

La marcha napoleónica de Charles Minard (1869) En junio de 1812, la Grande Armée de Napoleón cruzó el río Niemen en dirección a Moscú.

Los cinco incunables de la visualización de datos

No era una visita de cortesía. El Ejército más grande y mejor preparado del mundo invadía Rusia mientras las tropas del zar Alejandro I retrocedían dejando un sendero de humo y destrucción, su famosa táctica de tierra quemada. Cuando los franceses llegaron a Moscú, los generales rusos se habían marchado pero no sin antes prenderle fuego. El 19 de octubre, después de seis semanas esperando una capitulación que no llegaba en una ciudad defenestrada donde no quedaba ni comida para los soldados, ni pasto para los caballos ni refugio contra el invierno, Napoleón emprendió la vuelta a casa.

De los 422.000 hombres que empezaron la campaña, sólo 100.000 llegaron a Moscú. Graphic detail. Science On a Sphere - SOS NOAA. Science On a Sphere® (SOS) is a room sized, global display system that uses computers and video projectors to display planetary data onto a six foot diameter sphere, analogous to a giant animated globe.

Science On a Sphere - SOS NOAA

Researchers at NOAA developed Science On a Sphere® as an educational tool to help illustrate Earth System science to people of all ages. Animated images of atmospheric storms, climate change, and ocean temperature can be shown on the sphere, which is used to explain what are sometimes complex environmental processes, in a way that is simultaneously intuitive and captivating. Science On a Sphere® extends NOAA's educational program goals, which are designed to increase public understanding of the environment.

Using NOAA's collective experience and knowledge of the Earth's land, oceans, and atmosphere, NOAA uses Science On a Sphere® as an instrument to enhance informal educational programs in science centers, universities, and museums across the country. The top 20 data visualisation tools. Beautiful web-based timeline software. XML/SWF Charts. XML/SWF Charts is a simple, yet powerful tool to create attractive charts and graphs from XML data.

XML/SWF Charts

Create an XML source to describe a chart, then pass it to this tool's flash file to generate the chart. The XML source can be prepared manually, or generated dynamically using any scripting language (PHP, ASP, CFML, Perl, etc.) XML/SWF Charts makes the best of both the XML and SWF worlds. XML provides flexible data generation, and Flash provides the best graphic quality. Features: Quick generation of charts and graphs from static or dynamic data (any scripting language) Full updates and data streaming without reloading the web page.

Testimonials I just wanted to pass along how well your script worked for our stock performance page. Good work! This is amazing software. Just want to thank you for this wonderful upgrade. I purchased your product a couple days ago and first had time to sit down and work with it this morning. Wow, you are the best! Thanks for your great script.
