SummaryOperating InstructionInstruction for Initial OperationTroubleshooting


3D program which is used at this page is called "Geonova," and operated by mouse and keyboard. Initial view is from the sky, but you can change the view to anyway as you want to see by the simple operating system by mouse and keyboard.

Operating Instruction

Put the mouse on the map, and drag it to the direction where you want to move. A mark shown on below would indicate the direction to move the map.
The speed of move would be controled by the distance between the mark and mouse. Wider would be faster, and vice versa.
By typing "PageUp (PageDown)," view point would become higher (lower).
By typing the arrowhead keys, the direction of view can be cahnged. If the mouse has wheel, it can be done the same thing by the wheel.

Showing the logo as below, but does not start.

In this case, display has to be downsized, or used color has to be limited. See following instruction how to do those.

How to change the setting of display

In the case that the 3d display does not move smoothly or the program does not start, go to "Start"→"Setting"→"Control Pannel"→"Display". On the property of display, limit the number of color used on the display from the selection of 16bit, 24bit, and 32bit. (16 would be sufficient to solve problems)

If there is still problems to operate,
Change Render Engine.
