3.12.6 Doing more with GIS Data
  1. Create a three pane view. Show the Topography Background Image in one pane. Load in the DEM data we viewed earlier and create a Color Shaded Plan View in the second pane. Create a 3D Surface/Topography display in the third pane.

    Add Data Transect displays for the DEM data in each of the 3 display windows. Turn on sharing in each of the 3 Data Transect displays with the Edit->Sharing->Sharing On menu item. Move the transects around in the display.

  2. Load in a topographic map background and the roads and stream shapefiles for your own county. Look around to see how they match up.
  3. Look at hot spring in Colorado. Select the NGDC/Thermal Springs WMS image. Turn on county maps in the Background Maps and load in the location file: Displays->Locations->State Locations->C->Colorado->Water Features->Spring
