1) PLEASE CITE US
- Since a lot of time and effort went into the development of SG2PS, please cite the following publication if you use SG2PS for your own research: Sasvári, Á. and Baharev, A. 2014: SG2PS (Structural Geology to Post Script Converter) – A graphical solution for brittle structural data evaluation and paleostress calculation. Computers and Geosciences 66, 81-93.
2) SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
- If you can edit Excel documents and you can view PDF files then you can skip this point and jump to Download.
- You need a spreadsheet application installed on your machine to enter or edit your input data. Most users already have Excel installed. If you do not have Microsoft Office installed then we recommend Apache OpenOffice.
- You also need a PDF viewer to read the manual of the software and to view the results (stereonets and rose diagrams). How can you check whether you have a PDF viewer installed? Most likely you already have one. After installing SG2PS, just hit the Manual icon to check. If SG2PS brings up the manual, everything is OK, you have a PDF viewer. If the manual doesn't show up, SG2PS will help you and offer you to download Adobe Reader.
- Windows installer (free software, licence GNU LGPL; third party Ghostscript licence GNU GPL). Installer comes with manual and demo data set. If you do not have rights to run self extracting archives, a zip file with the same content is available here.
- For former versions, please see History.
4) THIRD PARTY SOFTWARE LICENSE
- A third party free software, the Ghostscript interpreter converts the PostScript files to PDF format. By downloading SG2PS you also accept the licence of Ghostscript.
5) ONLY FOR C++ PROGRAMMERS
- Source code of the main application: the heavy lifting is done by the back end, the command line application sg2ps.exe, written and maintained by Ágoston Sasvári. SG2PS source code is available on GitHub.
- Source code of the Graphical User Interface (GUI): the graphical front end is written and maintained by Ali Baharev and is based on Qt. SG2PS Qt GUI source code is available on GitHub.
