1. In the CPAS backend, a line between two points is defined as the geodesic on a sphere; however, it is visualized as a straight line on the Mercator projection map. Users are encouraged to insert points that span less than ten degrees.
Q: I have a lot of mesh specifications. One or more Mesh Specifications previously created do not appear on the “My Specs” page. What can I do to see them?
A: The web interface shows the 50 most recently edited mesh specification. Please export unneeded mesh specifications and delete them on CPAS to make older mesh specifications appear.
Q: When editing my mesh specification, I would like to delete a small region that is totally covered by another region. However, I cannot select it after clicking the delete button.
A: Drag one vertex of the small region outside the largest covering region. Then the small region can be selected and deleted.
Q: What is Max Resolution Gradient (km/km)?
A: It is the steepest allowed rate of change of resolution with respect to distance, which acts as a limit for resolution transitions. This ensures that there are no abrupt change of mesh spacing. The default value 0.0833 = 1/12 km/km means that a maximum 1km-resolution change is allowed for every 12km distance.
Q: The map panel sometimes appears broken.
A: There may be file loading synchronization problem or slowness. Try refreshing the browser.
