(Deprecated) Load a table of ocean ridge points for the entire world as a pandas.DataFrame.
Deprecated since v0.6.0. This function has been replaced with
load_sample_data(name="ocean_ridge_points")and will be removed in v0.9.0.
This is the
@ridge.txtdataset used in the GMT tutorials.
The data are downloaded to a cache directory (usually
~/.gmt/cache) the first time you invoke this function. Afterwards, it will load the data from the cache. So you’ll need an internet connection the first time around.
data (pandas.DataFrame) – The data table. Columns are longitude and latitude.
