Lesson 2 - Using the Map Wizard

Now that we have saved the data file, we will use the Map Wizard to create a grid and a map with contour and post layers. The Map Wizard steps through the map creation process from raw data to a map with one or more layers. The Map Wizard is useful for creating multiple map types from a single data file. The Map Wizard can use a data, grid, or boundary file as an input file.

  1. If you have the worksheet window open, click on the Plot1 tab above the worksheet window. Alternatively, you can create a new plot window with the File | New | Plot command.

  2. Click the Home | Wizard | Map Wizard command.

The Map Wizard opens to the first page, the Select Your Data page. The remaining topics in Lesson 2 will step through the pages of the Map Wizard.
