Exercise 8A: Identifying Factors for Your Colony -- The
following resources may be useful in selecting a location for your colony:
to view a movie of Painted Canyon, where contours are draped over topography
(it's a big file and takes a little bit to load). This will especially
help when designing a road, aqueduct, or dam. Click
and drag sideways to spin and up-down to tilt the view.
Click on the maps button to the left, and look
at any of the maps showing slopes.
Click on the overviews button or panorama button to get a
3D perspective of different areas of Painted Canyon, including whatever area
you select for your colony.
