You can use the menu or toolbar to do the following:

Create Scenario map

You can create scenario maps by freely drawing features such as points (icons), lines and polygons on the map.
Each feature can have a link as a photo or HTML file. In the Web Geoscience Library, this link will pop up when you click a feature.

"Create Scenario layer" dialog and scenario map layer

Create Subject map

you can create subject map layer.
In the current version, two types of subject maps can be created: "geological map" and "hazard map".

"Create Subject layer" dialog and subject map layer (geological map)

In order to create a geological map, geological boundaries must be drawn using geological topography.

The "Geolib3" plug-in has a function to automatically draw the strike line calculated using the measured strike/dip or 3-point method (use "Draw Strike Line" menu).

Export to "Web Geoscience Library" site

Created scenario maps and subject maps can be exported as a data file processed into a format that can be displayed in the "Web Geoscience Library".
