You can find Geomview in several locations, including Sunsite. However, the home of Geomview is the anonymous ftp site ftp.geom.umn.edu. The Linux port can be found at pub/software/geomview/geomview-linux.tar.gz (3.1 MB). Source code, geomview-src.tar.gz, is available in the same directory.
If you have Netscape or Mosaic, I strongly recommend that you visit Geomview's World Wide Web site, which is located at www.geom.umn.edu/software/download/geomview.html. At this site you will find not only executable code, but also an on-line tutorial for OOGL file formats, an FAQ, and introductions to other software. (While you are there, be sure to check out their Interactive Web Applications at www.geom.umn.edu/apps/.)
After Geomview is unpacked, it will occupy approximately 8.3 MB on your disk, including about 1 MB of documentation and 2.2 MB of examples. Unzipping and untarring will result in a new directory called Geomview. Change to this directory, read the README, and type install. The install script will ask you questions about where you want to install the executable, the manual pages, etc. At the end of the script, it will ask if you mind that the install script mails a registration to the Geometry Center. If you do not mind and have a mail facility set up on your machine, install will register you and place you on a very quiet mailing list (So far I have received only the registration confirmation).

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
