From HolcombeCoughlinOliver: GEOrient is a simple application to analyze stereographic projections and of geological structural data, copied and pasted from other applications or read from text files. Wind rose options include plotting mean wind data (wind speed, wind frequency, or wind energy). GEOrient plots orientation diagrams (equal area, or equal angle stereographic projections, and rose diagrams) as shown in the composite image above. Data is entered either by pasting from the clipboard from other applications, or from ASCII text files, in a wide range of file formats, and using a range of orientation conventions. The prime purpose is for the plotting of geological structural data but the plots may be applied to a variety of spatial or orientation data, including wind data. Data can be copied and pasted, for example, from external spreadsheets and databases. Using this system orientation data from tables displayed in a map in a GIS map databases (such as MapInfo) can be copied and pasted easily into GEOrient.
