The Dynamic Digital Map (DDM) of Clark Brothers Orchards is an interactive map of the farm. The DDM includes two types of maps (topographic and orthophoto), camera icons for more than 100 pictures of the farm (many of them aerial obliques), and two QuickTime panoramic movies, one made with images from Nasa World Wind and one made with 3-D topographic maps from Mass GIS. The program supplies a "FIND" feature that will center the map on the location of a selected feature. Several articles tell different aspects of the history of the farm and the Clark family, and there is an article with some general information about apples and links to related websites.
The downloads below are standalone programs that run without other software. Simply unzip the zipped file sent, open the resulting folder, and start the program from within the folder. From the start up screen, use the "WEB Access" button. Because the programs access their data (maps, images, figures, and movies) from a file server at UMass, and because they are using the web, they require a fast internet connection to run. All DDMs can alternatively access data from a CD, DVD or hard drives, if the data are available in those locations. To view any included movies, both Windows and Mac computers must have the latest QuickTime Player installed (free from Apple for both platforms, at www.apple.com). Linux computers must have an application that will play QuickTime movies, such as VLC, Xine or Mplayer. Please be sure Windows computers have their latest video drivers installed! Computers with less than 512 MB of free RAM will run these programs very slowly at best.
