Follow these instructions in order to run this app:
- 1. Downloaded this application in your PC.
- 2. Enter in our file manager https://www.onworks.net/myfiles.php?username=XXXXX with the username that you want.
- 3. Upload this application in such filemanager.
- 4. Start any OS OnWorks online emulator from this website, but better Windows online emulator.
- 5. From the OnWorks Windows OS you have just started, goto our file manager https://www.onworks.net/myfiles.php?username=XXXXX with the username that you want.
- 6. Download the application and install it.
- 7. Download Wine from your Linux distributions software repositories. Once installed, you can then double-click the app to run them with Wine. You can also try PlayOnLinux, a fancy interface over Wine that will help you install popular Windows programs and games.
Wine is a way to run Windows software on Linux, but with no Windows required. Wine is an open-source Windows compatibility layer that can run Windows programs directly on any Linux desktop. Essentially, Wine is trying to re-implement enough of Windows from scratch so that it can run all those Windows applications without actually needing Windows.
DESCRIPTIONThe main purpose of the software is to calculate the crustal strain rates using the least-squares collocation method. The software is able to simultaneously determine the signal and noise of the velocities at the observation points with the best possible removal of the observation errors, or at any other position with no velocity observation. Furthermore, the software can calculate strain and rotation rate tensors at points of interest, including observation points, grid points or points along a fault line. The advantage of the software is that it can optionally consider the effect of vertical velocity on the strain rates that is principally important for an area, where the vertical velocity is the major signal compared to horizontal velocity.
- No limitation on the number of input stations
- Two different types of covariance functions namely Gaussian and rational functions for fitting to the variance-covariance points
- Using two methods for making the histogram of the covariance sample points and interactive editing of the points
- Possibility to save or load coefficients of covariance functions and covariance sample points
- Several options to estimate the strain rates at points of interest
- Filtering velocity data at the observation points and interpolating them at points of interest other than the measuring points
- Calculating the normal and shear strain rates on the fault lines
- Visualization of the input data and output results
- Exporting the stations and strain rates data as text, Google Earth, and ESRI shape files
