MiraMon Map Reader

MiraMon Map Reader ®



MiraMon Map Reader The MiraMon Map Reader allows to visualize raster data (orthophotographies, thematic maps, digital elevation models, ...), vector data (contour lines, topographic maps, ...) and alphanumerical databases with links to any file type which can be opened from a Windows-based application (e.g. spreadsheets, databases, sound and video files, URLs, ...).

Data that are shown below are stored in the MMZ file format, which is the compression format for MiraMon data. This file format allows a rapid download from the internet (files forming a graphical layer are highly compressed in a single file). Once the file is downloaded it is decompressed in the client computer without necessarily being connected to internet.

A simple CLICK on the hyperlink to the MMZ files will show you the data with the MiraMon Map Reader.
You only need to have previously installed the MiraMon Map Reader

Digital Elevation Model
MiraMon Map Reader Digital Elevation Model (45 meters)
  • File: MDE.MMZ (179 Kb)
  • Data: Digital Elevation Model with a pixel size of 45 meters. In the case of a DEM the height variable is represented in a raster. This variable presents a continuous variation over space.
  • Data source: Cartographic Institute of Catalonia - ICC.
  • Recommendations: Data values are in integers and meters.
    • You may see the legend with the F11 key. Note all the legend classes.
    • CLICK on the map (query by location) and note the information provided by the system
    • You may want to make a query by attributes (Where are ...?). You can ask the system to show you all heights between 443 and 556 meters. You can also know the extension of this height range ? (Statistics) Realitzeu una consulta per localització (On és.... ?). Demaneu on es troben les alçades entre 443 i 556 metres. Quina superfície ocupa aquest rang d'alçades? (Estadístiques) Query by attributes
    • Note the presence of volcanic cones in this area.

VECTOR Data
For
MiraMon Map Reader Vectors of POINT type with links to databases
  • File:Punts.MMZ (367Kb)
  • Data: Ecological and Forest Inventory of Catalonia (IEFC) with symbology according to the tree species.
  • Data source: CREAF.
  • Recommendations: This vector file has a linked database which has alphanumerical information for each point.
    The background image is the vegetation map with only two classes (urban areas / rural areas).
    • You may want to query each point and see all the information from the linked database that the system provides you with.
    • The field named "Fototgrafia" is an HYPERLINK to a Windows bitmap file (BMP). If you click on it the system launches the application associated with this file type in your computer and opens it. Hyperlink
    • This type of link can be pointed to any file type which can be opened with any application in the Windows operating system, included an URL address, an e-mail address and many others.
    • You can query both the vegetation map (raster) and the inventory points (vector) by simply switching with the F9 key.
1:5000 Topographic Map
MiraMon Map Reader Vectors of LINE type with arc-node topological structure
  • File:Linies.MMZ (1.2Mb)
  • Data: 1:5000 Topographic Map with several layers: roads, rivers, contour lines,...
  • Data source: Cartographic Institute of Catalonia - ICC.
  • Recommendations: This vector file has a linked database with alphanumerical information related to each linear graphical object.
    • You may want to query on the lines and see the information from the database that is shown.
    • You can also change the vertical order of the layers (which is on top, below, etc.) and you can make them active or not depending on the visualization conditions. You can do this with the tool for layer control of the MiraMon Map Reader. Layer control
    • You may want to add the 1:25000 color orthophotography Orto25.MMZ (367Kb) to this map.
      MiraMon Map Reader will prompt you for the program session in which you want to load the image. You can choose the same session that has the topographic map opened.
