render magma – for the evil geniuses out there

MAGMA GIS simulation software Underworld

I have absolutely no need to calculate anything about magma. But it holds a sacred place in my mind and while fighting with RMagik gems I found a few helpful notes on the underworld site (like sub-surface GIS people, not the Mafia. Sheesh.)

Thus I recommend you check out just how far the open source community has come in terms of GIS and ESRI including subsurface water simulation, magma and much more. Check it here: http://www.underworldproject.org/models.html#Magma
