3-D Geologic Tour of the Grand Canyon
Pictures cover the entire 280 miles of the Grand Canyon
(Pictures are computer generated images)
The links below give an end-to-end aerial geologic tour of the Colorado
River in the Grand Canyon. Sequencing through them simulates a nearly
300-mile trip starting with Glen Canyon Dam at Page, AZ, and continuing
past the Grand Wash Cliffs to Lake Mead.
All 3-D pictures were generated with DeLorme's Topo USA version 3.0
program. Each picture used:
Zoom = 12
Magnification = 50%
Vertical Exaggeration = 1
Pitch = 30 deg.
Thus, all pictures use a standard field of view. Contour intervals are
50 feet for all pictures.
