Overview of the EarthScope Voyager Jr.

The Jules Verne Voyager Jr. is an interactive map tool developed by UNAVCO for the study of global-scale geodynamic processes.

Base Maps : The JVV Jr. opens with a map of the world displayed. You can change the map by selecting another map in the Select a Base Map list box (a thumbnail view appears to the right).

Add Feature(s): You can add one or more features to the basemap, such as volcanoes, plate boundaries, and earthquakes..

Add Velocities: You can overlay velocities on your base map, showing the direction and rate of plate movement. The velocities can be from models, observations, or both.

Make changes: Once you've made your selections, you must click on the Make Changes button to activate them. (Pressing the Enter key may work on some systems.)

Zooming on: You can zoom in on an image by clicking directly on it. Four zoom levels are currently available.

Zoom out: Once you have zoomed in on a world map, the Zoom Out button moves you out (up) a level.

Panning: Clicking near the edge of the map may pan (move you) to a neighboring region.

World map: This button redisplays the world view of the map that you have chosen, with the selected features and velocities still displayed.

Legend on / off: This button opens the Legend window, which displays your curent selections and has an interpretative legend for each selection.

Big / small maps: The maps come in two sizes, the default being the larger size. (The smaller version is intended for those with smaller monitors or slow internet connections. )

See in JVV: Clicking this buttons displays the current map and overlays in the Jules Verne Voyager , the high precision interactive map tool developed by UNAVCO , from which the JVV Jr. imagery was taken. Voyager was developed to help scientists better visualize the inter-relationships of geophysical and geologic processes, structures, and measurements with high-precision GPS monument data and solutions on Earth. It has since been extended to include other planets and moons and is expected to have data for most major bodies of the Solar System.
