Map Window: Overview
The Map Window in the Results Viewer lets you create Maps to help you analyze your Results Scenarios. Similar to the Chart Window, the Map Window allows you to compare spatial data from multiple Scenarios at the same time, including results of spatio-temporal Monte Carlo simulations.
Map Window Layout
Note that the Map Window is divided vertically into two child panes:
The pane on the left is the Criteria Pane. You use the Criteria Pane to choose the Variables you want to see in your Maps.
The pane on the right is the Map Pane. This window contains the Map and all of its Map Panels.
Map Panel Layout
The layout of the Map Panels is as follows:
- Each Variable is displayed on a separate row.
- Each Timestep is displayed in a separate column.
- Multiple Scenarios will have separate horizontal groups of Variables and Timesteps.
- Maps can only be viewed one Monte Carlo Iteration (i.e. realization) at a time.
Using the Toolbar
You can use the Toolbar at the top of the Map Window to set the Timesteps, Iteration, along with the number of Rows and Columns of Panels visible at the same time. The Toolbar also contains buttons to set Info mode or Pan mode, and buttons to Zoom in and out of the Maps.
The Iteration, Timestep, Rows and Columns controls require you to click the Apply button for your changes to be reflected in the current Map. For example, if you change the Timesteps you must click the Apply button for those changes to take effect. The other controls will immediately update the Map if appropriate.
