Overview    

See Getting Started for a quick overview of the Jules Verne Voyager map tool capabilities.

For items specific to voyaging PaleoEarth, continue to read this PaleoEarth Features Help page.

To learn how to use the grd, gmt, geo, lbl, vel, mon, msc, and/or opt codes to customize a starting view, see Advanced Help: URL customizing.


Voyager PaleoEarth features     All images for PaleoEarth were kindly provided by Dr. Ron Blakey, Professor Emeritus Northern Arizona University, Geology; see also Dr. Blakey's web site on paleogeography for background on the dataset and references. The default image starts at the current epoch, and goes back to 600 million years ago to the late Precambrian.

The texture underlay grids available in the [Features:] menu of Voyager: PaleoEarth are:
