View Modes

This page explains the View Modes of the Orbit 3DM Viewer and how to use them.

A view is a part of the Workspace in which the available 3D and/or image resources can be visualized. There are four types of views - dependent of the available resources:

  • 3D View mode
  • Spherical View mode
  • Planar View mode
  • Aerial Oblique View mode

For every view, its field of view is represented in the Reference View with an indication of the ID of the view. How the views are arranged, can be chosen in the Workspace Sidebar.

The viewing of a View can be adjusted by zooming in/out and clicking and dragging the view around. See More Menu for the Quick Navigation Guide.
