In response to LandView® user queries, the LandView staff has occasionally developed methodology, using inherent LandView functionality, to meet the users' needs. Users, too, have identified innovative uses of LandView/MARPLOT® material. LandView feels it important to share these Unique Solutions with our users in the hope that they meet the needs of others with the same concerns or catch the imagination of our users.

- Thematic Mapping of Multiple Variables [PDF]
LandView's Thematic mapping utility is designed to create a thematic map examining the spread of data values within a single data variable. Pathways are available to explore multiple variables in LandView and to display the variation in properties in MARPLOT.
- Subsets of Latitude/Longitude Values from Polyline or Polygon Map Objects [PDF]
In MARPLOT, polyline or polygon objects are defined by a series of latitude/longitude pairs connected by line segments. It can be of value to create a new map object formed by a sub-set of these values. An example could be that portion of a state's boundary that is a coastline and fronts an ocean.
- Bringing Internet Data into LandView User Files [PDF]
The Internet is a valuable source of GIS data, yet such data is frequently available only in higher order GIS applications. This article, by Jerry McFaul-USGS, demonstrates how the GIS data available on the Web may be shared with LandView/MARPLOT users. This article was originally written in support of the LandView 5
application. Screen shots and references to files names refer to that application. Similar LV6 files replace all files referenced as LV5.
- Other Population Searches Defined in MARPLOT [PDF]
LandView has automated searches for populations at a radius around a point. Population searches in a defined map area, a polygon, require additional user input. Several methods are discussed.
- Creating and Organizing New MARPLOT Layers [PDF]
User created layers in MARPLOT add significantly to LandView MARPLOT functionality. The article provides insights in using this utility more effectively.
- Notes on LandView Installation Procedures [PDF] or [HTML]
This Help article was written to supplement Help file associated with installing LandView and MARPLOT data on Networks and local drives. Additionally, it provides insights to users who want to better understand the structure of the LandView program.
