Change Summary

Some bugs were fixed reading various input formats.

    Features

  • Demagnetization type can not be applied to all loaded specimens by clicking the thermal or alternating field demagnetization buttons while control is held down.
  • Added input format for the Geophysical Survey of Finland (GTK).
  • Added Cenieh regular importing.

    Fixes

  • Fixed graph scaling for very small intensities.
  • Fixed bug reading BGN2G input format (PGL Beijing, University of Barcelona) where some lines were dropped.

Change Summary

New features were added to Paleomagnetism.org!

    Features

  • Added option when saving a new collection from data to normalise directions (normal, reversed, flip).
  • The map in the geography portal now supports loading and displaying of simple literature data distributions for plotting (confidence parachutes).
  • Added University of Rennes input format to the interpretation portal.
  • Added University of Montpellier input format to the interpretation portal.
  • Confidence ellipes in the statistics portal are now not-flipped to antipodal positions by default. You can re-enable this setting in the settings tab.

    Fixes

  • Fixed UTF-8 exporting of combined PDF graphics.
  • Fixed issue in BCN2G routine with broken input (see #72).
  • Fixed field headers in the MagIC exporting portal.

Change Summary

A bug in the Utrecht format where the intensity was not corrected for the sample volume was fixed. This error does not affect directional statistics. Specimens with this problem will be marked but may at a later stage be corrected.

    Features

  • Added information page that decribes how Paleomagnetism.org 2.0 implements the FAIR principles.

    Fixes

  • When reading Utrecht format files the sample volume was ignored in the intensity calculation. It is now calculated correctly for newly loaded specimens, and correctly displayed in the interpretation portal for old specimens. Specimens in the data library with input format UTRECHT and below version 2.0.1 are in Am^2 and should be divided by the sample volume and brought to µA/m.
  • Fixed regression introduced by commit 94fa96dbda1742b0104e79feae548fed43dc8496 where the last step in Utrecht format for every specimen was not read.
  • Loading files from the Paleomagnetism.org 1.0.0 format now correctly sets the sample volume.
  • The y-axis of the intensity diagram was changed from µA/m to fraction when normalization is requested.
  • Fixed non-ASCII characters in exporting of single charts in PDF. Unicode support is not available for combined charts. We recommend exporting combined charts as SVG.
  • Intensity diagram is redrawn when option normalize intensities in the settings tab is changed.

Change Summary

Some new features were added for user convenience. Minor bugs were fixed.

    Features

  • Added window to add some metadata to collections in the statistics portal. This can be used when exporting .pub files for sharing for literature data that cannot be submitted to the data library.
  • Added satellite imagery to the geography portal (#53).

    Fixes

  • Added new paper (Koymans et al., 2020) to the references page.
  • Fixed JSON exporting in statistics portal mean directions tab.
  • Fixed reading of input files in reversed order. The order is now as expected.
  • Intensity plot in the interpretation portal now uses categories instead of numeric values.
  • Size of charts in the interpretation portal has been increased.
  • The PalPole description on the miscellaneous portal has been updated.
  • A warning is now shown when the application is run in to beta mode.
  • Map width in the geography portal has been reduced and bounds were removed (#51, #52).
  • Fixed GPlates rotation files for plate ID "0" which is the same as "000" (#54)
  • Fixed accidental swap of latitude, longitude in publication preview map.
  • Fixed CTMD test not working for reversed directions.
  • Added Remasoft (RS3) file format.
  • Data library author information is now taken from DOI by default.
  • Added age and generated country based on lat, lng to data library.
  • Prevent linking to statistics/geography portal when no interpreted components are available.

Change Summary

The release of Paleomagnetism 2.0.0 exists in parallel with the old application. The old version may have some additional features in the statistics portal that were removed in this version. This version of Paleomagnetism.org focuses on raw demagnetization data and its provenance, and may therefore be more limited in what it allows.

    Features

  • General redesign and improvement of the application has been completed.
  • Added option to drag files in to the Interpretation, Statistics, and Geography portal screens for loading.
  • Possible to easily switch between groups in the interpretation fitting tab.
  • Different groups saved from the interpretation portal in a single file are split in to different collections.
  • Added option to stabilize parametrically sampled directions by bootstrapping.
  • Metadata in the interpretation portal is now collected on the specimen level.
  • Added stabilizing function to parametric sampling through a bootstrap.
  • Added MagIC portal where Paleomagnetism.org 2.0.0 files can be converted to MagIC files.
  • Added support for reading MagIC files in the interpretation portal.
  • Implemented keyboard shortcuts for A95, a95 confidence and switching between coordinate reference frames.
  • Support for extended metadata (e.g. specimen location, lithology) per specimen.
  • Map & APWP module from the statistics portal were moved to the geography portal.
  • Magnetostratigraphy tool was moved to the geography section.
  • The magnetostratigraphic column is now rendered automatically from the polarity of the inclination.
  • Added option to upload custom plate rotations from a GPlates .rot file.
  • Added option to add APWP from a csv file.
  • Core and bedding parameters can now be changed within the application.
  • In the statistics portal coordinate frame can now be switched between using the key 8.
  • Confidence ellipse can be toggled between A95 and α95 using keyboard key 5.
  • Added option to copy to clipboard, delete, and save a collection using keys e, q, and s respectively.
  • Added a data library where demagnetization data can be added.
  • Demagnetization data from the Paleomagnetism.org 1.0.0 format can be loaded.
  • Support for better data management practises. Only curated data with a clear provenance can be used and published using the application.
  • Added DOI for particular each software version release (see bottom of page or references).
  • The application is only accessible through HTTPS.
  • Added HTTP API to query data from the library at https://api.paleomagnetism.org.
  • Added new table under interpretation portal showing interpreted components.

    Fixes

  • PGL Beijing importing is now handled by the same routine as University of Barcelona.
  • Zijderveld diagram now shows true angle and axes are scaled by chart width/height ratio.
  • Declination correction for BCN2G format is now handled by adding the value to the core azimuth.
  • Fixed exporting of compiled figures with multiple charts.

    Other

  • McFadden and McElhinny CTMD test has been removed in favor of a coordinate bootstrap.
