Geotouch is a 3D GIS (Geographical Information Systems) for geology and geophysics.

It is a program for exploratory data analysis in three and four dimensions. Interactive communication between diverse datasets is stressed as the main gestalt of the Geotouch program. The primary kinds of data include point, vector, raster and wireframe data sets, in addition to specialized forms such as focal mechanisms and ellipsoidal information. The software includes methods for cutting cross sections at arbitrary angles, spinning objects in three space and animating time series of punctual data, such as hypocenter series and volcano eruptions. The program is written in POSIX compliant C using X-windows for Unix systems and has been ported to Linux.
