Author Topic: Missing graphics?

 - posted November 29, 2002 03:09 PM      Profile for vjwilliams           Edit/Delete Post 
When I clicked on a particular graphic tag (i.e. G123), a sign appeared saying "Not available."

There are 5 or 6 graphics in the program (out of several hundreds) that are not completed, and thus show up as "Not available" when selected. We apologize for this inconvenience. Because of the versatile and extensive manner in which the materials are inter-linked, and because of the large extent of the content, it was much simpler to install "place holders" for these, rather than leave them out completely.

To view any of the hundreds of graphics in the program, use the special Graphics option available in the menu bar under Tools. From this you can view any of the pictures directly, or even search for all pictures on a particular subject. The caption of each has been elaborated upon to facilitate this search function. Search for a subject, then just click the graphic title to view it. It is like flipping through a book, just looking at the pictures.

Missing graphics now online.

Until we have the chance to rebuild the program and include the missing graphics, we will offer here the opportunity to see these missing pictures.

There are several figures referenced in Article 2 on Why the wind blows. These can be seen and printed here:

Article 2 graphics. This is a 23 kb pdf file.

The other pictures that are not in the program are these, although you may not run across reference to all of them. Weather Trainer is a big program, and you may not get into all corners of it right away. If you do find a picture missing, it can be seen here if the link is hot... we will add the missing ones as soon as we can find an appropriate graphic.
