3D Mapping Resources

1)
Orbit vector tiled : export only, an ovt file cannot be edited.
2)
Ascii text file : Text files are no GIS vector resources but can contain a list of coordinates and attributes to be imported via import and geocoding.
3)
FME Resource Library, separated FME license required.
4)
ArcSDE : Read only for geometry and attributes, not available for Asset Inventory
5)
Sid : Drivers and support on Windows only. Dependency on the Visual Studio 2017 runtime.
Sid of 1st, 2nd, 3th and 4th generation are supported.
6)
ECW : Drivers and support on Windows only. Dependency on Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package
7)
JP2 : Drivers and support on Windows only
8)
TIFF reading : Support for Baseline, Tiled, Multiresolution and BigTIFF. Support for commonly used compression methods (G4, JPEG, LZW and Packbits).
If a tiff file cannot be read properly, contact Orbit support.
9)
TIFF writing : Support for Baseline, Tiled and Multiresoltion. Support for JPEG compression only.
10)
e57, Writing : Point cloud content only. Imagery and recording positions are not exported.
11)
LAS : Variable Length Records (VLR) header information is supported to define resource coordinate reference system.
12)
LAS, Reading : Support for LAS version 1.2, 1.3 and 1.4
13)
LAS, Writing : Support for LAS version 1.2 only.
Export includes XYZ, Intensity, RGB if available RGB and GPS time if avaialble. The CRS WKT string is included as VLR (2112).
14)
LASzip : Supported using laszip libraries.
Drivers and support on Windows and Unix only. Currently no support on Mac and Linux.
Laszip libraries are included in Orbit installation. Dependency on Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package
15)
LASzip, Writing :
Export includes XYZ, Intensity, RGB if available and GPS time if available. The CRS WKT string is included as VLR (2112).
