How to use the applications#

The Geodynamic World Builder is in its core a code library which can be used by other codes. To use it, you need to write a program. The GWB apps provided are small programs that allow users to directly use the GWB. Two apps currently come with the GWB: gwb-dat and gwb-grid. The first application allows users to provide a World Builder file and a .dat file, which is a space-separated value file with some extra options, to query individual points of interest in the World Builder world. The second application allows users to use a .grid file to create a grid output (.vtu) of a whole domain which can then be visualized in a program like Paraview.
