This page provides links to download the latest (2023-06-07) cross-platform, 64 bit compliant, web enabled versions of the Dynamic Digital Map of the Springerville Volcanic Field, Version 2 (DDM-SVFv2, a third generation descent of the app published by the Geological Society of America (Condit 1995a, 1995b). Dominantly basaltic, and 2.1 to 0.3 million years in age, the field encompasses >3000 sq. km. (1200 sq. mi.), located in east-central Arizona on the southern tip of the Colorado Plateau. Comprised of over 450 cinder cones and associated lava flows, with 501 recognized volcanic units, it typifies distributed volcanism in a continental setting. The DDM displays four thematic geologic maps of the field, 251 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 248 sites, 40 K-Ar and four 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, and the thematic maps and mapping conventions, adapted from the USGS maps MI-1993 (Condit, 1991) and MI-2431 (Condit and others, 1999). 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. The second, adapted from a 1995 New Mexico Geological Society guidebook (Crumpler and others, 1995) focuses more on the tectonic features of the field.
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 at UMass 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. 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 21 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 9.6.8 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: remember the keys control-shift-delete to bail out on Windows freezes? ;^). For a stable but dated version see http:/ddm.geo.umass.edu/ddm-svf. I am hoping the next release of LiveCode will mitigate that problem, and thus live up to their company goal of complete cross-platform compatibility.
