Wasmer Consulting NMPlot User's Guide List of NMPlot Files
The following files are distributed as part of the NMPlot installation package.
NMPlot.exe - The NMPlot application.
NMPlot_VersionHistory.txt - A text file containing a record of the released versions of NMPlot.
Sample Grid - Airport Noise.grd - A sample grid of aircraft noise levels, expressed in decibels (dB), around Holloman Air Force Base, New Mexico. This grid is displayed by some of the sample plots.
Sample Grid - Airport Noise plus 3 dB.grd - A grid created by using NMPlot's grid modification capability to add 3 dB to all data points in the grid Sample Grid - Airport Noise.grd. This file is used to demonstrate the overlaying of two sets of contours.
Sample Grid - Wright-Patterson.grd - A sample grid of aircraft noise levels, expressed in decibels (dB), around Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio. This grid is displayed by some of the sample plots.
Sample Plot - Contours.nmp - A sample plot that demonstrates the contouring capability of NMPlot. The plot is of 60 through 80 dB noise level contours.
Sample Plot - Map Overlay.nmp - A sample plot that demonstrates NMPlot's ability to display plots over background maps. 60, 70, and 80 dB noise level contours are displayed over a map of Holloman Air Force Base, New Mexico.
Sample Plot - Transparent Contours.nmp - A sample plot that demonstrates the transparent contour fill capability of NMPlot. The plot is of 65, 75, and 85 dB noise levels contours at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. The contours are displayed over a georeferenced bitmap map of the area surrounding the base.
Sample Plot - Annotations.nmp - A sample plot demonstrating NMPlot's ability to draw geographic annotations. Flight tracks (the paths that airplanes follow as they fly patterns near Holloman Air Force Base), navigational aids, and points of interest are shown. 60, 70, and 80 dB noise level contours are also displayed, demonstrating NMPlot's ability to draw contours filled with solid colors.
Sample Plot - Color Gradient.nmp - A sample plot demonstrating the color gradient capability of NMPlot. The grid Sample Grid - Wright-Patterson.grd is plotted with smoothly varying transparent colors indicating noise levels.
Sample Plot - Contour Overlay.nmp - A sample plot demonstrating NMPlot's ability to overlay contours from two or more grids. This plot is of the 65 and 80 dB contours from two grids: Sample Grid - Airport Noise.grd and Sample Grid - Airport Noise plus 3 dB.grd.
*.nmplot_legend - Legends that you can select from when printing plots. See Legends for more information.
Default.MapFormattingScheme - Controls the colors, line styles, etc. used to display Digital Line Graph (DLG) maps. See Map Formatting Schemes.
SampleMapData\*.* - The SampleMapData subdirectory contains map data for both Holloman and Wright-Patterson air force bases. The Holloman data consists of 1:100,000 Digital Line Graph (DLG) files downloaded from the United States Geological Survey (USGS) web site. The Wright-Patterson data consists of a bitmap map in JPEG format, accompanied by a world file containing georeferencing information.
Documentation\*.* - The Documentation subdirectory contains the NMPlot User's Guide, stored in XML format.
The following files are not included in the NMPlot distribution package, but may appear after running NMPlot.
NMPlot.cfg - Contains application-wide NMPlot configuration information. An example of the type of information stored in this file is the last size and location of many dialog boxes. If this file is deleted, all options will return to their default values.
NMPlot.log - Log of debugging, error and warning messages from the last time NMPlot was run.
NMPlot Fatal Error Report.txt - A report containing debugging information for the last fatal error experienced by NMPlot. This file may contain information allowing the cause of the error to be determined.
