Nakai's Southwest Ridge Route...

Nakai's Southwest Ridge Route TOPO 3D.
The Onahu Creek Drainage on left and the Tonahutu Creek Drainage on right.

Can't help the somewhat fuzzy look here, but I think the image serves a purpose.

Pretty neat.

How did you get the 3D effect ? It's pretty neat.

Re: Pretty neat.

Thanks, I purchased the 3D enhancement for the TOPO! program. The problem resides in creating a jpeg image because the program won't let you. The 3D program splits the screen in half, the left half showing the 3D and the other showing the actual topo.

So you have to "Print Screen" and drop the image in a photo editing program. Next, make it a jpeg and crop it, eliminating the topo part and keeping the 3D part. When you use "Print Screen" and crop it in half you get a very suspect image to post, thus the fuzziness. I wish I knew a better way to transfer the image to SP.

Re: Pretty neat.

It's beyond my limited talents with a computor. Good job though. You put up alot of really excellent, useful stuff.

Re: Pretty neat.

The software is called Terrain Navigator put out by a company called Maptech. I prefer National Geographic's TOPO software but I use Maptech's TN for the 3D effect.

Kane, thanks for the lesson. I always forget about the "print screen" option. That's a great idea.
