“The ArcGIS Pro plug-in opens a complete new world to all ArcGIS Pro users”, says Peter Bonne, CEO of Orbit GT. “It provides access to massive 3D resources available in 3D Mapping Cloud or from your on-premise 3DM Publisher right into your favorite desktop application. In one effort, you can now access terabytes of point clouds, spherical imagery, oblique imagery, UAV data and more with a single add-in. An add-in per data type has instantly become history.”
The Orbit GT add-in for ArcGIS Pro is built using the HTML5 based 3D Mapping Cloud Viewer SDK and has equal capabilities as the 3D Mapping Cloud web-based Viewer. At the same time, this SDK also accesses the many installed on-premise 3DM Publishers. So a single add-in provides access to public and private resources.
3D Mapping Cloud is Orbit GT’s SaaS platform designed to host, process and share massive volumes of LiDAR, Imagery and other reality capture data, however, it has been collected. It supports high-resolution Mobile Mapping as well as aerial Oblique mapping, dynamically fused, each with fully automated adapted viewer behavior. Data can be shared informally using a 1-click Bookmark, or via a formal nicely setup Publication.
