3D PDFs allow for sharing & collaboration without software keys
Chesapeake Technology, Inc., (CTI) is pleased to announce a new capability for its flagship product SonarWiz that allows users to easily share 3D views of their datasets with clients and the public.
The new 3D PDF exporting feature enables users to harness the capabilities of the PDF standard to help visualize the extents of their dataset. No longer will simple screenshots suffice when a client can zoom in, out and navigate through an interesting sonar feature simply by interacting with a PDF – and without needing a software key. Subbottom, sidescan, and bathymetry data can all be visualized in the 3D PDF. This feature is available on SonarWiz past version 05.06.0064. An in-depth tutorial about the new feature is available through Chesapeake Technology’s website here.
“This new 3D pdf export functionality enables and encourages true collaboration for our SonarWiz users and their colleagues. We’re quite proud of the feature and have seen a lot of adoption already,” said John Gann, lead developer and co-founder at Chesapeake Technology, Inc.
Chesapeake Technology Inc. is committed to ongoing improvements to its SonarWiz mapping software and has several new releases monthly. The new 3D PDF feature and many others are the result of customer requests. The new release of SonarWiz is free to all customers who have an extended maintenance agreement.
