Files contained in this repository

  1. *.gpml files at top level: These are collations of paleoshoreline estimates in GPlates-compatible format.
  2. Global_Paleoshorelines_[Golonka|Smith]: These directories contain:
    1. Global_Paleoshorelines_[Golonka|Smith].shp: A shapefile containing all timesteps (same as the *.gpml file but you can load/alter it in QGIS/ArcGIS)
    2. A subdirectory called [Smith|Golonka]_Timesteps_geojson: This contains a *.geojson file of each timestep and can be pre-viewed using GitHub's automatic rendering of geojson files
    3. A subdirectory called [Smith|Golonka]_Timesteps_shp: This contains sets of Shapefiles for each timestep (same as the *.geojson ones).
