New 360 degree imaging software from Arithmetica provides an easy way to combine 360 degree video trails with maps, plans and layouts to produce a fully immersive and interactive view.
Arithmetica’s SphereVision Project Builder features a more refined and streamlined workflow, enabling users to easily bridge the gap between 360 degree content and site or location specific information. An improved interface intuitively guides users through the creation of 360 degree routes and hotspots, while a new Measurement Module enables iSTAR panoramic camera users to capture measurements directly from within a spherical image.
SphereVision Project Builder will be on show at INTERGEO 2016, the world’s leading conference and trade fair for geodesy, geoinformation and land management which takes place from 11-13 October in Hamburg, Germany.
“Over the past year SphereVision has been evolving, culminating in the launch of SphereVision Project Builder,” commented Mark Senior, Business Development Manager at Arithmetica. “SphereVision Project Builder enables users to easily and quickly create 360 degree environments with links to documents, plans, and layouts as well as additional visuals and audio. This detailed information can then be viewed and shared with colleagues and clients. In fact, we are so confident in the latest version of SphereVision that we are giving potential users the chance to try before they buy.”
SphereVision Project Builder imports 360 degree content from a wide range of camera and sensor systems. The intuitive interface guides the user through the creation of 360 degree routes with hotspots to provide greater awareness of a project area or journey. Users can integrate aerial imagery, maps and floor plans, for example, giving a geographical or locational base for the project. Additional rich media can be added, including high resolution photographs, video and audio clips, survey data and documents, to further enhance the interactive experience.
For users of the industrial grade iSTAR panoramic camera, there is also brand new functionality for capturing measurements from directly within a spherical image. The new Measurement Module is the result of a partnership between Arithmetica and NCTech. It has applications including forensic evidence collection, built surveying, asset management and construction.
SphereVision Project Builder users can distribute finished projects, alongside the free Viewer for Windows, for colleagues and clients to see. At INTERGEO, SphereVision will also be demonstrating the soon to be released HTML5 version of the Viewer.
A 30 day free trial version of SphereVision Project Builder is available for a limited time from www.spherevision.com/software/spherevision-project/, where you will also find links to a range of sample projects and YouTube tutorials.
