The SPARC Portal maps offer a split-screen view option. By default, the maps interface will display only one map. The split-screen feature can be utilised in order to view multiple maps in one display.
Working through this step-by-step guide will help you learn the split screen feature.
The multiple map view can be set up by clicking the Open new map icon in the bottom left corner. Note that this currently can only be done while viewing the AC flatmap.
Step 1: While in the AC flatmap, click on the Open new map in the lower left corner. Clicking on either of the first three options will change the main display to the desired map (e.g. Open FC Map will change the display to the FC map).
Note: Accessing a new map will prompt a dropdown menu in the top left corner, as shown in Figure 2. Maps and scaffolds that have been opened can be accessed here.
Step 2: Click on the Open Sync Map option. This will open a new map/scaffold in split-screen with the currently displayed map. By default, the Rat Body 3D Scaffold will open, as shown in Figure 3.
A: Independent control toggle. Toggle to control both maps either simultaneously or independently.
B: Split screen setup. The split screen can be modified to the desired view. Figure 4 shows the available options.
Step 3: In order to change the current map(s) being viewed, click on the Open new map icon or open a new scaffold as described in the Viewing scaffolds documentation. This may revert the display back to single view. The split view can be achieved by repeating Steps 1 and 2 or by utilising the split-screen icon, as shown in Figure 4.
The dropdown menu will allow switching between all opened scaffolds and maps, as shown in Figure 5.
