Digital Elevation Model -- 3-D View

Module by: John Janovec. E-mail the author

Summary: A 3d digital elevation model of the los amigos conservation area.

Figure 1: An overlay of the Landsat TM 2000 image on the DEM creates a most striking birds-eye view of the Los Amigos landscape. Here you view down the valley of the Los Amigos River (2) and the smaller watershed of the Amiguillos (3). The biological station (yellow outline) sits on a high terrace near the mouth of the Los Amigos River, overlooking the Madre de Dios basin.

Definition of a lens

Lenses

A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

What are tags? tag icon

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.
