Blom announces the release of version 3.2 of the BlomDESKTOP Viewer, a desktop application for geospatial data.

The main features of this new version of BlomDESKTOP Viewer are based on enhancing the user experience with new datasets such as the spherical imagery of BlomSTREET and high resolution LiDAR models.

To enhance the capability of the BlomSTREET product, BlomDESKTOP Viewer 3.2 now provides a complete integration with the Cyclomedia API offering full measurement capabilities of points, lines, heights, areas and volumes as well as year filtering, export, print and vector reprojection capabilities.

BlomDESKTOP Viewer LiDAR features have been developed to allow our users to work with continuous LiDAR models online, retrieving new data from the servers as needed and minimizing the needs to manually load new areas when moving to different sections of terrain. A powerful terrain profile tool is also included. It is now possible to define terrain profiles over the maps or imagery and extract the data from the LiDAR datasets to perform on-the-fly detailed measures of objects.

Featuring additional enhancements to the user interface (help messages, tooltips, north compass, metadata information on-screen, etc.), there is also a new way of geocoding address points using locally-stored shapefiles. This includes the ability for the user to define fields to be used in the geocoding process.

BlomDESKTOP Viewer continues providing a complete showcase of Blom online geoservers capabilities, BlomURBEX and BlomURBEX 3D, in terms of functionality and available datasets, including access to third party geospatial data from Blom partners and Blom’s unique database of BlomORTHO, BlomOBLIQUE and Blom3D datasets.

Applications for BlomDESKTOP Viewer are vast including exporting imagery for evidence reports or presentations. The software can be easily used throughout an organization with minimal installation effort and a small amount of training time.

BlomDESKTOP Viewer will update itself to version 3.2 when launched.
