How do I insert a Salmonscape map into a Word document?

There are a couple of different ways to approach this problem.

If you are using Microsoft Windows, you can capture an image of the SalmonScape window in the copy/paste buffer using the ‘print screen’ key on your keyboard and then using the ‘paste’ tool on the Word toolbar to insert the image in your document. This can produce a reasonably useful product particularly if the legend is displayed.

A second approach involves using SalmonScape’s ‘Print Map’ tool selected from the Tools pulldown menu.

On the Print Map output, the map frame and the legend frame are separate ‘GIFs’ or images and the disclaimer and date stamp are text strings.

To capture the map frame, position the cursor over the map frame, right click your mouse, and select ‘COPY’, open your Word document, and then use the ‘Paste’ tool on the toolbar to insert the image in your document. Repeat this process to capture the legend.

To capture the disclaimer, use your mouse to highlight the text, copy the text to the copy/paste buffer by pressing ‘CTRL V’ (hold the ‘Ctrl’ key down and at the same time press the ‘V’ key), open your Word document, and then use the ‘Paste’ tool on the toolbar to insert the text in your document. Repeat this process for the date stamp.

You should always include the date stamp and cite the source of the image as “Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife’s SalmonScape Web Application” in your Word document. You may also want to consider including the disclaimer.
