Useful Software & Other Links
McGill Enhanced is a browser extension that makes life at McGill infinitely easier and includes features such as:
One-click course registration from VSB
Quick links to VSB, Minerva, & more
Crowd-sourced course averages
& a ton of other useful stuff
Check crowd levels on campus
See how crowded it is in the libraries before you trek across town when it's -18 C.
A open educational resource virtual microscope for the earth sciences so you can practice online. Super useful in mineralogy and petrography!
This site is the holy grail of rock & mineral identification info. Each page consists of two parts, descriptive (an exhaustive explanation of the mineral phase) and visual (high-resolution photographs); the information contained on the pages are taken from various university textbooks and scientific papers, cited throughout the text.
Can't get into the class you want? Sick of refreshing VSB? Use seat alert to find out when a spot opens in the class of your dreams.
Matlab is a EPS student's bread & butter for creating colourful graphs, figures, & anything else you could need or imagine (such as boring stuff like data processing). In short, it's a programming language for the geosciences.
Just generally useful and lots of fun to play around with when you're bored in class.
