Purpose of the Software:
The software is intended to be used to produce profile images.
This is how I would like the output to look.
Some items that the software application should include…
Icons and Fonts:
- I would like to be able to place icons/fonts and label them on the profiles to show where certain features are such as water sources, shelters, and stores, etc.
- These icons are currently a font set that I have on my computer and can provide this font to you if needed.
- I would like to be able to change the size of these fonts or icons.
- I would like the option to be able to place the icons/fonts where I want them to display. By this I mean, I would like to be able to pick whether they are displayed above the profile or below the profile. For example, see the attached sample.
- I would like the output the same as the attached sample image that I have included. If there is a way to present the information that looks better than what attached, I am open to review.
- I do not want jagged edges and points in the profiles. I would to the look more like mountains and landscapes. The edges can be a little rounded to improve the appearance.
- I want them in 30-mile lengths/increments.
- I would like to have the output break it down into 30 mile increments from 0.0 to 2193.0.
- I would also like to be able to pick the 30 mile increment that I would like as an output.
- I would like one-mile increments (vertical lines) within the lengths. I would also like there to be 5-mile increments in the lengths. See the attached sample. If you have a better idea, let me know.
- Besides wanting them in predefined lengths, I also want them labeled in 5-mile chunks but in one-mile increments (This is what I was trying to explain in the previously statement). I have attached an image of what I would like them to look like. I am open to ideas and suggestions on this also.
- I would like to be able to have it output as a PNG file or PDF.
- I would like to be able to pick what resolution of the file output. I want a good high resolution image.
- I would like to be able to set the size of the output file and have them remain proportionate. For example, I am currently using 5.25 x 3 for my image size. I would like that to be proportionate. You can see the sample I sent earlier.
- Would like the program to be able to use all mileages and there elevations to come up with a more accurate profile.
- However, I do not want all descriptions to be used. I would like the option to be able to pick and choose what descriptions are used or displayed. By this I mean, the plot with be used but I can decide if I want the label to be displayed or not.
- Would like to be able to bold text in the descriptions individually or the whole text.
Import and Export options:
- I would like to be able to import and export my excel file.
- I would like to also be able to export the information as an excel file.
- Editing data could be inside of excel.
How data file/spreadsheet will be used.
This is just an idea, I am open to suggestions.
Column A, will be northbound mileages, you will base the profile mileages off this.
Column B, will be the icons that are used. Don’t use this column.
Column C, will be Descriptions. Don’t use this column.
Column D, will be elevations. You will base your elevations off this.
Column, E will be the southbound mileages. Don’t use these.
Column, E will be left empty.
Column, G will be for icons. You will use the icons from this is not using imported icons.
Column, H will be another description. You will use this description.
