9.1Overview of Mapping
You can access the some of the mapping capabilities in BenMAP by going to theTools dropdown
menu, and choosing theGIS/Mapping.
In addition to theTools menu, BenMAP provides several places where you can map the input
data that you are using for a particular analysis. Below, we provide examples of both types of
mapping. First, we discuss the display options and taskbar buttons which can be used in both
After choosing the file or data type that you want to map, you must select the variable you want
to map, and how you want it displayed. Double-click on the layer name on the left-hand side of
the window. A small box will appear with theDisplay Options for the layer.
This box allows you to set the following options:
Variable.The drop-down menu lists all of the variables contained in the layer you chose. Select
the variable that you want to view. Note that each layer can only show one variable at a time.
Start Color and End Color.These are the colors that represent the gradations in the selected
variable. BenMAP uses 10 equal-sized increments for the variable, with a gradual transition
between theStart Color and the End Color. To change either color, click on the colored
square and select a new color.
Default Color.This is the color is used for values that fall outside of the range of the Min
Valueand the Max Value.
Min Valueand the Max Value. These options define the range of the selected variable and are
automatically set to the minimum and maximum of the variable. However, you may wish to enter
other minimum and maximum values, such as in the case where there is one outlier that is
dominating the color scale. For example, some urban grid-cells such as those in Los Angeles
have extremely large values. Since BenMAP creates 10 equal-sized increments between the
minimum and the maximum, it is not uncommon to have most of the grid values in just a few of the
increments. If you change the minimum and/or maximum values to exclude outliers from the color
scale, the outliers will then appear in theDefault color.
