Welcome to the Spinal Cord/Brainstem Interactive Atlas Maintenance Page
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.


Site Basics
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 window, and it's postion on the screen, are determined by the javascript 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).

Popup 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.

Scroll down the list or select the first letter of the structure to jump down.
