  • Menu bar entry: The standard Menu bar items and an extra item.
  • Toolbar: The standard toolbar and some extra buttons specific to the rayCloud and the Volumes view.
  • 3D View: Displayed in the main window. It is a simplified version of the rayCloud 3D View. Displays in 3D the different elements.

  • Selected Coordinate System: Displays the selected coordinate system of the point.
  • Position: Displays the (X,Y, Z) coordinates in meters [m] / feet [ft] of each point of the 3D View when passing the mouse over any element. When passing the mouse over the displayed elements, the coordinates change.
Important: In the Volumes, the coordinate system is the output coordinate system.

By default the output coordinate system is the same as the GCPs coordinate system if GCPs are used. Otherwise, it is the same as the image geolocation coordinate system. If the coordinates system is WGS84, the output is given in UTM. If less than 3 images are geolocated, and less than 3 GCPs are defined, the output coordinates system is set to "Arbitrary".
