Trimble has announced that its browser-based Clarity viewer is now available as a stand-alone web application that the company says will encourage collaboration between geospatial professionals and other end users.
The new release allows users to use and share 3D point cloud data, models and meshes via a web browser, which can be viewed on desktop and mobile devices.
“Trimble Clarity enables users to easily share and view rich 3D point clouds without having to transfer, copy or mail large data sets,” said Tim Lemmon, marketing director of Trimble Geospatial. “By leveraging an intuitive, browser-based experience, stakeholders can easily visualize and understand project data, enabling greater collaboration and informed decision making.”
The company says the Trimble Clarity web application provides the ability to easily use and share 3D data with clients or project stakeholders, extends the value of rich 3D data, promotes services and generates new revenue streams.
Users can generate private or public web links to share project information, providing secure control over access to the data.
Trimble Clarity supports data from Trimble products, such as the Trimble SX10 Scanning Total Station, Trimble TX Series 3D scanners and Trimble MX9 Mobile Mapping System, as well as data from non-Trimble sources.
With the upcoming version of Trimble Business Center office software 5.20, users can publish their 3D data directly into Trimble Clarity, creating a seamless integration and workflow between both platforms.
By viewing the 3D data as a location-based project, the company says users are able to more quickly understand the context of the data and significantly improve the ease of use compared to traditional folder-based approaches.
