Download | Installation | Registration | Limitations | Academic use | Disclaimer


The software is specific to Microsoft Windows. (Users have reported that it does not install under Windows emulations on Macs)

GEOrient opens initially in its unregistered form, displaying an unregistered notice and inviting registration. The unregistered form of the program has all features enabled except that the maximum number of plot windows that can be opened simultaneously is restricted to 3, and the opening registration notice will continue to be displayed on startup. Registration (paid) removes both these restrictions and initially sets the default maximum number of plots at 10. (This number can be then be changed from within the Preferences dialog accessed from the View… menu).

*ACADEMIC USE: GEOrient packages can be used freely in their unregistered form by academics (teachers and students) for teaching and non-commercial research purposes, but please acknowledge the author in any publication or figure arising from its use. However, academic users who wish to use the registered version, which removes the plot window restrictions, must also purchase registration.
For commercial users the unregistered download version can be used for evaluation purposes only, and must be registered for continued commercial use after a reasonable evaluation period that must not exceed two months.

Although every effort is made to rectify bugs as they are recognised, the author cannot guarantee that these packages are without error, and assumes no responsibility for their use, or for interpretations based on their use.
Frequent field work commitments may occasionally delay my ability to handle email queries promptly
