How To Use TerrAvion's Adjustable Thermal Color-map

The TerrAvion Dynamic Color-map allows users to focus their thermal images to bring out more detail and variability. While the thermal data remains constant for any particular image, altering the thermal color-map for that image can change the way that data is illustrated in the image you see. Follow the directions below to learn how to manually adjust your thermal color-map.
