Converting GMT to PLT

The GMT format is associated with Generic Mapping Tools, an open software package consisting of tools for handling geographical and Cartesian data, designed for use via command-line. The most recent version of the GMT format was optimized to support more geometry types and attributes. Such files can be used for producing complex PostScript illustrations of detailed maps, with a wide range of applications in geospatial science, as well as biology, physics, medical research etc.

PLT is a vector image format representing the HPGL standard language developed by Hewlett-Packard for printing line drawings. HPGL is supported by AutoCAD and other CAD software programs. PLT files represent plotter images that can be printed using a computer printer specialized in vector graphics (called "plotter"), which renders images as lines not as dots.
