Legend Manager

SADA allows users to modify the legends that control the color range of data and result output. Two types of legends are permitted.


This legend is an unbroken color band that ranges from dark purple through a spectrum to bright red. Continuous legends can be customized by manually stretching or compressing a subset of the color band.



Categorical legends permit the user to break the legend into a series of ranges or categories with set names and colors. Note: SADA comes with 2 additional Categorical legends, Risk Scale and Geobayesian Scale. These are just samples of what may be created; they may be edited or deleted as necessary.


To control and create new legends, access the Legend Manager by one of these ways:

   Select the Edit button next to Legend Manger in the Parameters Window when Format Picture is selected in the Steps Window.

   Right mouse clicking on the legend itself.

The Legend Manager window appears.


At the top of the Legends window, a drop down box appears containing the default legend types and any user-defined types already created. Select a legend in this box and press the Apply button.

To create a legend, select (New Continuous Palette) or (New Categorical) from the drop down box. SADA responds with the following window.


All new legends are based on a existing legend. Type the name of the new legend in the top entry box and select the legend it will be based on in the lower drop down box. See Customizing Continuous Legends or Customizing Categorical Legends for further instruction.
