This is a MFD built to use a satellite in orbit to update a base map of Droo. The MFD will detect satellites in orbit with 'Map' in the name (This can be edited to a custom string with a variable found in the program), and display the orbit of the selected sat on a equirectangular map.

The Mapper

The MFD has 3 mapping modes. These are a slope map, a height map and a basic visual map. Each map has a group of settings that can be edited to give different results. The MFD will by default also map underwater terrain, which can be turned off with 'Edit Map'. Basic information about the satellite used for mapping is displayed, and the selected satellite may also be changed.

The Slope Map

The slope map will get the average slope at a pixel's position, with red being the steepest slope, and green the gentlest slope on land, blue the gentlest slope on water. The slope that is displayed as pure red, and the size of the square around the point of land used to calculate can be edited with 'Edit Map'

The Elevation Map

The height map will display height with black being the lowest and white the highest. The lowest elevation given the white value, and the colour given to 0m ASL, can both be changed with 'Edit Map'.

The Visual Map

A basic map showing the colours of the terrain shaded with elevation. The colour intensity given to 0m ASL and the height of maximum colour intensity may also be edited.

Note: Several more options can be edited using variables present within the Vizzy, such as map resolution and the satellite path resolution. The MFD has been edited to allow for a horizontal resolution of 360 pixels.

    @ARXSPACE
    If you're talking about the initial map loading, cannot get around it. If you want satellites that can cover large areas of ground, go with a polar orbit

    How can I speed up the map loading?
    For me,it took like 40 years to upload😂
    with a cluster in equitorial orbit and another cluster of satellite in a 60°....
    Could you suggest any ideal type of orbit for better map loading?
