Exercise 8A:  Identifying Factors for Your Colony -- The following resources may be useful in selecting a location for your colony:

  • Click HERE 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.
