The larger image produced is between 600 and 900kb in size and is an average resolution for the image produced by the FootPrints application.

Larger or higher resolution monitors produce larger images. Single map images exceeding 5 Mb in size are not unusual.

The FootPrints V2 interface allows you to size your mapping window to fit your needs. Full screen, small enough to allow multiple windows or anywhere in between the choice is yours.


This Mapview shows an example of Geology and Contour mapping on the Black Canyon City FootPrint.

The Geology layer for the Black Canyon City FootPrint includes Geologic Mapping at a resolution of 1:24,000. Query the database to get detailed descriptions of rock type and age.

Contour Maps help us to visualize the terrain of an area, tricking our eyes into seeing things in 3D. The Contour layers are unique and created by Miner Diggins specifically for the Black Canyon City FootPrint.

Exclusive to FootPrints !

In this example we have selected the following layers;

  Contours 200 ft
    Contours 40 ft
  Shaded Elevation

Because of the extreme elevation changes in the terrain within the Black Canyon City FootPrint, we selected 200 ft and 40 ft and 10 ft Contour layers to visualize the terrain. At a higher zoom level adding 10 ft Contours would be appropriate.

These Contour layers can be applied over any base map. By overlaying contours on an Ortho we can see the actual terrain in 3D.

A Compass and Scale bar appear on each map displayed and printed.
