This latest version includes new functionality:
that allow users to save and reload GPlates sessions
A kinematics tool
that can be used to create graphs of velocities and to export both tables and graphs.
for import and export of GeoJSON files.
Experimental release: 1.5+ Hellinger-tool
A tool to calculate the Hellinger best-fitting rotation pole for segmented magnetic pick data has been added to an experimental release of GPlates that can be downloaded with all other 1.5 functionality. The tool uses a Python implementation of the FORTRAN program (Chang and others) and can import FORTRAN compatible data files.

Launched in late 2014, the Portal offers GPlates visualisation using your web browser. The tool was developed using Cesium opensource software. Recently added interactive datasets include the SRTM 15 Plus Topography dataset with adjustable scaling of terrain as well as the published magnetic isochron pick database (GSFML). PyGPlates powers some of the Portal functionality and some demonstrations are available on the site.
