Geoinformation Systems: Online 3D Viewer BS Contact Geo gets certification for US Navy
Peter Schickel: " The certificate is an important Step for Bitmanagement in the US Market / Viewer technology convinces being faster than comparable software / BS Contact Geo the software for interactive geo-referenced 3D applications(PresseBox) (Berg, )
Due to the continious enhancements BS Contact provides in its 7.2 version the decisive functions for the visualization of Geo data in the internet, like earth viewing projects, navigation applications in motor cars and city mapping.
These functionalities the user and developer can integrate in its application:
- Standalone or browser plug-In
- OpenGL / direct X
- VRML/X3D (all X3D Geo nodes,), CityGML, Collada, Google kmz
- Globe View, map view, city view(LoD), street level view, interior view
- interactive Audio and Video application
- interactive navigation in the viewer (moving, zooming)
- Fly over function as well as "6 degree of freedom" input device.
The visualization component BS Contact Geo which can be adapted in OEM concepts has a small size for downloads and is supported by BS Tiler and BS SDK for data preparation and data reduction. BS Tiler is a tool for automated optimization of data for fast rendering in BS Contact Geo of elevation models, vectors, point clouds and satellite image textures, automatic triangulation and generating tile and LoD structures. BS SDK Package includes documentation and tools for integrating the software in third party products and user applications.
Among the most important applications - beside the military defends sector - are the environmental protection , archeology, marketing for a number of branches like tourism, realestates, city planning, as well as desaster protection and disaster management.
