Geospatial data sets are massive and growing – satellite/aerial/UAV/terrestrial, imagery and orthophotos, maps, digital terrain models, LIDAR and point clouds, GIS dataset and meta data, photos, videos – the list of possible maps and 3D models that can be visualised today are seemingly endless. But many end users never actually see them, or are limited to viewing 2D screen shots, PDFs, FTP or blind cloud sharing as they don’t have the skills, software or computing power to view or interact with rich 3D data.
But easily viewing this data is now possible with the release of 4DMapper, an open and flexible sharing platform for geospatial data providers and users. 4DMapper allows data of many types to be easily shared via URL with customised views and real-time collaboration. Click here to use the free online viewer– no sign up or program downloads required.
4DMapper is a fully browser-based application meaning data can be viewed quickly and easily. It is designed for use with data acquired from sources such as UAV photogrammetry, GNSSS survey, filed sampling, laser scanning and traditional survey, enabling data officers, managers and executives to access data. This rich data can then be brought to life with customised display formats, embedded onto imagery or base map data and integrated with multimedia such as photos and videos.
Data types supported by 4 Mapper:
- Terrain: DTMs, DSMs, DEMs
- Orthophotos: Geo tiff, ECW, TIF/TFW, JPG 2000, JPG/JGW
- Photos: Single image JPG photos, vertical plane ortho photos, Geotagged JPG photos
- Videos (MP4/WEBM/OGV/FLV)
- Point cloud data: LAS, LAZ, E57, XYZ
- Shape files
- WMS (Web Map Service)
- Over 4000 coordinate systems / projections supported
- ArcGIS server (coming soon)
- 3D city models (coming soon)
