Skyline Software Systems Releases TerraExplorer for Desktop 7.1

Herndon, VA – Skyline Software Systems Inc. announced today that it has released TerraExplorer™ for Desktop 7.1 as part of its robust suite of 3D geospatial mapping solutions. This latest update contains enhancements and features that include improved integration with CityBuilder™, more powerful analytics capabilities, and support for VR technology.

“Our users will be so excited to get the new version of TerraExplorer. With major upgrades in visualizing LiDAR classification layers, and asset tracking over time along with VR integration, users have even greater resources at hand to immerse themselves in their work,” stated Bob Peters, President & CEO.

Swipe 3D Mesh Layers – New comparison tool supports enhanced spatial and visual analysis, allowing you to carefully compare between two mesh layers, e.g., to contrast between the state of an area before and after a disaster or visualize changes over time.

The new TerraExplorer release vastly expands its mesh layer capabilities to include greater integration of CityBuilder’s 3DML classification tools, which eases incorporation of BIM data and enables quicker editing capabilities for building features and attribute classification. More powerful analytics include a new time swipe tool allowing users to easily see changes taking place over time, and the elevation difference tool highlights changes in elevation or volume. The new volume analysis tool helps speed up analysis of storm damage and debris removal, and the buffer tool allows users to quickly assess buffer/safety zones. VR support is also now available via integration with the Oculus Rift virtual reality system. This integration allows users full immersive experience within Skyline’s actionable 3D environments providing new perspectives and advanced capabilities for data use. View the TerraExplorer 7.1 release notes.

New Elevation Difference Tools – New tools analyze the elevation difference between 3D mesh layers or between elevation layers in a defined polygonal area, allowing you to carefully compare between two layers, e.g., to contrast between the state of an area before and after a landslide or volcano, or to evaluate restorative efforts following mining activity.

Skyline Software Systems will be featuring the new release at the GEOINT 2019 Symposium in San Antonio TX, June 2 – 5. Attendees can learn more about TerraExplorer by visiting booth #747 and requesting a demo.

Interested customers can learn how to upgrade, or purchase by visiting the TerraExplorer for Desktop product page.

TerraExplorer allows users to view and build realistic 3D visualizations by overlaying the terrain with unlimited data layers, 3D models, virtual objects and more. TerraExplorer Is part of the SkylineGlobe software suite which also includes PhotoMesh™, and TerraBuilder™. This powerful suite of mapping solutions enables an enterprise to build, edit, navigate, query, and analyze realistic 3D environments, and rapidly and efficiently distribute them to users.
