6.1 View tab - overview
The View tab have tools for viewing prepared/loaded data and adding different types of background information for QA or more easy navigation.
6.2 General tools (e.g print screen)
- Clear info panel: delete everything from the info panel.
- Save image: make a screenshot (copy) of the map (not the surroundings) which can be pasted in another software.
6.3 Viewing grids/topography
Tools for viewing the attached grids (e.g. DEM, DIR, ACC/UPA, WTH, SLC etc).
- Viewing a DEM file under "Type" (A)
- "Show Legend" is used (B)
- The grids can also be shown with more transparancy (C)
- The color style can be changed (several choices) (D)
- The button "query" give you the grid values of the pixel you click at in the map and its neighbours (after activation).
- The box "show outline" will hide the pixel information and just show you the outline/borders of the grid you are showing. This can facilitate navigation if the grid is large or has very high resolution.
6.4 Viewing created subbasins, main river basins, flownet
See Terminology for some explanation about the words.
- "Aros" will show the loaded subbasins (1.& 2.)
- "Selected" will hide all subbasis except the selected (3.)
- "Outlines" will hide the outlines (4.)
- "Haros"" (+ unchecking "Aros") will show the main river basin outlines (5.)
- "Transparant" will make the subbasins transparant and you will be able to see underlying information (e.g. grids) (6.)
- "Show id" will show the SUBID of the selected subbasins (7.)
- "Flow" and "Flownet" will show the flowlines/flownet (8.& 9.)
- "no def. target" will show flowlines also to default targets (sinks, coasts etc) and can be good to uncheck if it disturbs the visulaisation. The default is checked.
- "View data" + "Colormap" make it possible to give the different subbasins colors according to attached attributes (e.g mean elevation, uparea, etc) (10.)
6.5 Viewing external data like Open Street Map (OSM) or shapefiles with reference data
First, go to the tab VIEW up to the right. Then you will see this further down to the right.
Useful tools for quality checks and navigation on the map.
- "Show shapefile" provide a way to view a shapefile in the background (e.g. gauging station location, hydrological features as reservoirs, river networks, etc)(1.)
- "Background map" make it possible to view e.g. Open Street Map in the background (2.)
- "Show in browser" will open Google maps in your browser and zoom in to the region you have on your WHIST display.
