Attention!

This project was moved in plate-tectonics.

A brief history:

  • we originally created pyplatec as the python bindings of platec
  • we since then forked platec as plate-tectonics, because the project was not maintained. Pyplatec became the python bindings of plate-tectonics instead of platec
  • we decided it makes more sense to have a single project containing the library and the python bindings. That project is plate-tectonics](https://github.com/Mindwerks/plate-tectonics). This project (PyPlatec) is kept only as a reference for existing users.

PyPlatec

Travis Build Status AppVeyor Build status

Plate simulation for python (wrapper of an existing C/C++ library).

Take a look at the simulation at work: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bi4b45tMEPE#t=0

The original project is here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/platec/ . That project is part of a Bachelor of Engineering thesis in Metropolia University of Applied Sciences, Helsinki, Finland. The thesis is freely downloadable from http://urn.fi/URN:NBN:fi:amk-201204023993 .

Kudos to the original author: Lauri Viitanen!

Requirements

Supported versions:

  • Python 2.6
  • Python 2.7
  • Python 3.2
  • Python 3.3
  • Python 3.4

Compile

python setup.py build

Usage

The library is quite simple:

p = platec.create(seed=3)
while platec.is_finished(p)==0:
    platec.step(p)
hm = platec.get_heightmap(p)
platec.destroy(p)

Or if you want more control:

p = platec.create(seed=3, width=1000, height=800,
                  sea_level=0.65,erosion_period=60,
                  folding_ratio=0.02,aggr_overlap_abs=1000000,
                  aggr_overlap_rel=0.33,cycle_count=2,num_plates=10)

Enjoy!

Projects using it

I created this wrapper for using this fantastic piece of code in worldengine

Supporting windows wheels

Through AppVeyor we build the binary distributions for windows (several python versions, both win32 and win64). However they need to be downloaded from AppVeyor and uploaded to Pypi manually.
