The PALEOMAP Project illustrates the plate tectonic development of the ocean basins and continents, as well as the changing distribution of land and sea during the past 1100 million years. The reconstruction of paleoclimates is also discussed. Maps are viewed as animations where the time component can be user-manipulated. Included are a variety of background materials which supplement the animations. ... Full description.

This page offers two pieces of software that produce visualizations of seismicity, volcanic activity and wave propagation. The Seismic Waves program displays waves propagating out from the epicenter simultaneously on three-dimensional and cross-sectional views of the earth. These two views are synchronized with actual event waveforms so that as a particular phase arrives at a seismic station, one ... Full description.
