Mobile Mapping Top and Side Toolbar

This page describes all the functions and icons of the Mobile Mapping tab top toolbar and Mobile Mapping view side toolbar.

Viewing and using complex mobile mapping resources requires lots of tools and functions directly available to operate efficiently.
The Mobile Mapping tab has a top toolbar,always visible, and a sidebar on each opened view.

Top Toolbar

Tabs > Mobile Mapping

Open View
The leftmost “Open View” button activates the function to open one or more mobile mapping views by clicking on the Map 2D.
It is one button, but it can be used in different ways to open on the most efficient way the view you want :

The “Focus” button activates the function to focus (pan / heading) all opened panorama views (not 3D views) to the specified Map 2D location by clicking and dragging on the Map 2D.

Close all
A single click on the “Close all” button will close all opened views.

The pan button (hand) activates the mobile mapping pan function to navigate on an opened image or 3D view.
It is one button, but wit a lots of possibilities to navigate smooth and easy on images and in 3D :

Brightness slider
The slider on the right adjusts the image brightness for all opened image views.
This slider will be useful when using pictures taken by changing weather condition or varying illumination.

Side Toolbar

Tabs > Mobile Mapping > Open View

View Reference and Close View
Reference or link with the panorama position on the MapCanvas.
When moving the mouse cursor above the reference number, the reference number will change to a close icon.
A single click will close the current Panorama view.

3D View shortcuts
The 3D view shortcuts can be combined with the <Ctrl> button. A normal click will adjust the zoom using all visible data in the Mobile Mapping view as reference. Combined with <Ctrl> the 3D viewpoint (XYZ) will be retained, only tilt and heading will be adjusted.

  • Get topview : tilt -90°
  • Get oblique view : tilt -45° but retain heading
  • Get streetview : tilt 0°

Make Snapshot
Copy exactly the current Panorama view to the clipboard and paste the snapshot in another application.
The visibility of overlays (photo positions, vector objects, attribute measurements, photo and view information) on snapshots is a generic mobile mapping view setting, available via the setting icon in the sidebar of the leftmost mobile mapping view.

Play / Walk-through
Auto play through panoramas. Continuously the next panorama within the panorama field of view will be displayed.
Field of View and Tilt will remain unchanged.
Once the play function is started the stop icon will appear. A single click will stop the auto play function.

Open Measure Window
3D Measurements
Open the mobile mapping measure window to perform any supported measurement using point cloud or via triangulation.

Open Vector Overlay Window

Group of parameters related to the presentation of vector overlays on all mobile mapping views.

Point Cloud Legend and Restrictions
Point Cloud Legend and Viewing Restrictions
Group of parameters related to the legend and restriction of the point cloud resource on all mobile mapping views.
A point cloud must be available for at least one of the opened views to enable the option. This icon will be grayed out if no point cloud is available for any of the opened views.

    Heading and Field of view are also nicely represented in the pie-slice alike representation for each selected
    panorama on the MapCanvas.
    • Heading : Orientation for the center of the image (north = 0).
    • Tilt : deviation from horizontal view in DEG.
    • Field of View : Width of the viewing angle in DEG.
  • Include Overlays on Snapshot : Visualize overlays (point cloud, measurements, dataset objects and panorama information) on the snapshot,
    created using the second panorama side icon.
