STP Ground Based Instruments Database Browser
The applet provides access to the Ground-Based instrument database via a map.
You are able to control the area of the map to view, and which types of
instruments should be shown.
- Selecting an item from the scrolling list of instrument types marks on
the map the sites of all instruments of that type. Clicking on a marked
location then opens another browser window containing details of the
instruments at that site.
- Clicking on the 'Remove Selections' button clears all the selections in
the list and removes the marks on the map.
- Dragging the mouse creates a 'zoom rectangle'. Having created such a
rectangle, clicking the 'Zoom' button enlarges that rectangular portion of
the map to fill the viewing window, and the 'Unzoom' button returns you to
the full map.
- The 'Show Stations' button will display details of all marked
instruments within the zoom rectangle in another browser window.
