3-D Geologic Tour of the Grand
Pictures cover the entire 280 miles of the Grand Canyon
(Pictures are computer generated images)
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.
