Abstract: We developed 3D MHD simulations of the large scale response of the ISM to a spiral perturbation. We tested our results by generating synthetic maps of the sky and comparing them with real observations. We then turn the procedure around. By placing an imaginary observer inside this galaxy, we found the characteristics that he/she might deduce from the observations, and compared them with the real behavior of the gas in the simulations.
