PaleoDataView

PDV Logo

PaleoDataView (PDV) is an open-source software tool for the management and maintenance of larger paleoceanographic data sets. The toolbox is currently developed by Michael Langner and Stefan Mulitza and funded through the German PalMod Project.

Please send your bug reports or other comments you may have to smulitza(at)marum.de

The current version of PDV provides

  • tools for the import and export of proxy data from/to Excel and text files,
  • an import helper for text files downloaded from Pangaea,
  • a zoomable map interface to quickly explore the availability of data in specific regions in the main window,
  • calibration of radiocarbon dates against IntCal13 (Reimer et al., 2013), taking custom or modelled (Butzin et al., 2017) reservoir ages into account,
  • visual alignment against standard reference curves (i.e. Lisiecki and Stern, 2016),
  • a map interface for the fast visualization modern ocean atlas values for core sites and the global ocean
  • a direct interface to BACON Age modelling (Blaauw and Christen, 2011).

Release notes

-to install a PDV collection from an external source (i.e. PANGAEA), copy the main collection folder to the "PaleoDataView" data folder under "Applications" (Mac) or "Documents" (Windows) and select the collection folder in PDV under Menu->Data->Change Collection->Change Working Directory

-Mac-users: Ensure that you have full writing and reading rights on the “PaleoDataView” folders and the files it contains, otherwise PDV or parts of it might not work properly

-Mac users: We strongly recomment to delete older version before installation of a new version.

-Version 0.9.5.25 includes the World At­las of late Qua­tern­ary Fo­ra­mi­ni­fe­ral Oxy­gen and Car­bon Iso­to­pe Ra­ti­os (please cite the original sources when using the data)
