Mapping biomes

Question

Based on part descriptions (M700 scanner etc.) it seems like the stock scanners find resources, not biomes. It also seems like they don't create a permanent map to refer to, at least not the narrow band scanner. Is there a way to permanently scan and map biomes and resources in the stock game or do you need that SCANsat mod for that? Basically I want to scan kerbin first, and find all the biomes for research purposes, then do the moons and other planets after getting all the easier, local science.

 

Thanks!

Resource maps are permanent, and you have to use the M700 scanner to get them.

For a biome map, you use KerbNet and a decent quality probecore (at least an OKTO2). You don't need to do any scanning.

If you just need a quick reference to try to find a biome there's also a stock mode in the Alt-F12 cheat menu to make biomes visible in the map view.  There are biome maps available online.  There is also KerbNet as stated above.

The ScanSat mod is also fun to use, and has a lot of capability to make permanent maps and export them.  But I'd urge any player to master the stock tools before using mods, personally.  If you ever find that stock gameplay is getting boring or tedious, then the world of mods awaits...
