Welcome to the Spinal Cord/Brainstem Interactive Atlas Maintenance
This page was designed by the website
author to assist with the maintenance of the site. As you may be aware, this
atlas requires a large number of files to allow it to be "Interactive". The
number of individual html files that compose this atlas stands at 287. Finding
the particular file you wish to edit could be time consuming. With this page
you should be able to find the file you need relatively quickly.
As we all know there are 27 plates
in this atlas. However, there are actually twice that many html files
(54 for you non-math majors) that are called plates. This is because the
"ZOOM" feature of the site simply links to another plate with a larger image.
The large image is also a clickable image which greatly increased the difficulty
of making updates to this site during it's creation, and which could cause
problems when making corrections to plates.
The standard plate files
are named "platexsm.html" with x indicating the number of the plate. For
example plate VI is "plate6sm.html". The sm here indicates it is the small
version. The large version of this plate is "plate6.html". Please note that
the default plate is always the sm version. Even when viewing a large plate,
clicking on the next or previous arrow or clicking the plate number menu,
the visitor will be advanced to the small version.
The popup windows themselves
are individual web pages (html files) that are caused to "pop up" when a
structure is clicked. There are 226 files that are intended to be viewed
in a popup window. The best service this maintenance
web page provides is a way to quickly determine the file name
of one of these 226 files to allow additions and/or corrections. CLICK HERE to jump down to the locator below.
The size of the popup
hidden at the top of the plate files NOT in the individual popup html files..
The files are named using
the first letter of each portion of the named structure. In this manner the
"dorsal longitudinal fasciculus" description is the file "dlf.html". This
naming convention works fairly well, however a significant number of structures
share initials, therefore some html files were given a slight variation.
Look below to find a specific popup window file name.
The popup windows for the "level
of section" image on plates 5 - 27 are separate from the plate files.
That is, if you need to change a popup from the level of section image be
sure to locate the file listed below for this
image map. The naming convention used for these files was the first four
letters of the name of the structure (with only two exceptions).
Window file locator
The name of the structure appears on the right with the corresponding html
file name located on the left. Click the structure name on the right to bring
up the actual popup window for review. To edit the window, make note of the
html file name and open it in a word processor or web creation software.
