Spatial Aspect Explorer
The Spatial Aspect
Explorer is targeted for exploring comprehensive amount of spatial data in form of
interactive maps. The data for such representation includes both raster data
and vector data. Primary design of the product directed for exploring big
amount of spatial data, such as global coverage with any desired level of
details with high speed of operability over the data from side of user. For
meet the target, the program utilizes same pipeline as used in Spatial Aspect
Viewer, which is other product of author, used for working with raster data
only. More than, it reuses the entire pipeline for raster data from the former
product for render its background layer with all respective features of
customization from side of user.
profiles of work for background: DEM, Global Land Cover Characteristics
(GLCC), Monochrome Bitmap Image, plain BMP-file and a solid color.
modalities for background, originated from Goddard SFC Image Files:
altitudes, counting, roughness, sloppiness and albedo.
background management in respect of colorizing elevations with dynamic
background management in respect of shading slopes for different
color legend for GLCC background, kind of Olson Global Ecosystems (OGE),
for near to natural appearance with keeping distinguishing abilities.
ratio attraction by using canvas, which keeps extents of region over its
navigation with smart cursor, including smooth zoom.
commands, including small step zoom by mouse wheel.
with assigned regions of interest.
from selected record in database of layer.
searching records of interest in database of layer with sorting over
identification by simple double-click on its label or symbol.
projections: Cylindrical and Polar Stereographic for all terrestrial
planets and Moon.
of direct projection components and interpreted values of raster data in
projection indication for maps in Polar Stereographic projection in status
layer appearance in respect of borders, interior, labels and centered
symbols of shapes.
overlapping policy for labels and symbols over all layers, including
different sorting of shapes.
policy for evaluation and restriction Levels of Details (LoD) per layer,
including script processor over a language, having a number of
string-based functions and operators for heuristic filtering.
data from compressed vector files and their collections of different level
of optimization in respect of LoD, which are in proprietary formats of
data from standard shape-files (.SHP) of ESRI with number of limitations.
data from files of all raster formats and their collections, supported by
Spatial Aspect Viewer, with only restriction against loading them in case
of violation of supported set of projections.
rendered result to PNG-files.
- User manual included.
Requirements for installation:
- Any Windows OS for desktop or laptop computer, XP
recommended for higher speed, although Microsoft does not support it.
- Graphics accelerator is not required.
- At least 1GB of memory recommended.
- Some space on disk should be reserved for data
collections thyself. For currently existed collections 27GB will be enough, but
better if you have more. Also you can have less for case of using only
