Introduction to the Display Interface

This tutorial is an overview of the user interface for the display process that is common to TNTmips, TNTedit, and TNTview. It introduces basic concepts, controls, and operating procedures that you can use while displaying any type of geospatial data.

We suggest new users read Getting Started with TNTmips, TNTedit, and TNTview first. Next go through this one, Introduction to the Display Interface, followed by the companion tutorial Displaying Geospatial Data, which will be rewritten to cover techniques specific to particular data layer and display types.
