This page provides links to download the latest (2021-01-08) cross-platform, 64 bit compliant, web enabled versions of the Dynamic Digital Map of the Springerville Volcanic Field, Version 2 (DDM-SVFv2). Dominantly basaltic, and late Pliocene to Pliocene in age, the field encompasses ~3000 sq. km., located in east-central Arizona on the southern edge of the Colorado Plateau. Comprised of over 450 cinder cones and associated lava flows, contained within 503 recognized volcanic units, it typifies distributed volcanism in a continental setting. The DDM displays nine thematic geologic maps of the field, 244 images and QuickTime movies (many aerial and from NASA's World Wind satellite), over 640 major and trace element whole-rock chemical analyses, mineral chemistry for 31 units, paleomagnetic polarity data from ~250 sites, ~ 40 K-Ar and, 4 Ar40-39 dates, and Sr, Nd and Pb isotopic analyses, all linked to sample sites located on the maps and in some of the photos. The DDM also includes three articles, each with numerous hyperlinks to the maps and images. The first introduces the geology of the field, the thematic maps and mapping conventions. The other two are field trip guides. The first, a modified version of the 1989 IAVCEI field trip, concentrates on the petrology of the field; it contains hyperlinks to icons of field trip stops, displayed on the lithologic map. An updated version of this guide, revised for the Chapman Conference on Distributed Volcanism, which has been postponed to May 2021, will be incorporated in the DDM soon. The second guide focusses more on the volcanologic and tectonic features of the field. This 2021 version 2 of the DDM displays the entire field in each of the 9 thematic maps each as a single image, concatenating what previous versions showed in three separate but overlapping parts. It also includes a high definition (HD) version of each of those maps at twice the resolution of the previous maps.
Go here to see what DDMs are and how you can make them; be aware as of this update I need to revise the ddm-template to reflect the changes since the date on the ddm-template webpage.
These downloads are standalone apps that run without other software. The programs access their data [maps and images (in jpeg/tif/png/heic format), and movies in MP4 format] from my file server using the web, thus requiring fast internet connections. All DDMs can also access data from flash or hard drives, if the data are available in those locations. Computers with less than one GB of free RAM will run these programs very slowly at best. PLEASE NOTE: I am still working on converting QuickTime Virtual Reality movies to MP4s as well as other selected movies. Most movie files have alternative still image equivalents, so look for them in the Index of Images, usually by the same name, with an extension of .jpg. I am also in the process of revising the Correlation of Map Units (COMU) charts, and have revised charts for two of the geographic subdivisions to reflect placement of unit corresponding to the Geomagnetic Instability Time Scale of Singer, 2014 (Morgan Mountain and Yellow Jacket Cienega areas). Also note I created these 64 bit DDMs on a Mac using LiveCode 9.6.1 and found them stable, however my tests of them on my Windows 10 PC has resulted in occasional shut-downs of the DDM (with no other systemic problems); for a stable but dated version see http:/ddm.geo.umass.edu/ddm-svf. I amm hoping the next release of LiveCode will mitigate that problem, and thus live up to their goal of ‘complete cross-platform compatibility’.
DDM-SVFv2-2021-01-08.exe- A Windows 64 bit compliant version (sent as a Zip archive). Still a bit glitchy with occasional shutdowns of the app (see notes above) .
