Leica Geosystems GIS & Mapping LLC announced IMAGINE Virtual Delivery, an add-on product to IMAGINE VirtualGIS. IMAGINE Virtual Delivery expands the reach of the desktop 3D scene generation and viewing tool by converting IMAGINE VirtualGIS scenes and accompanying data into a web-optimized format. Browser-based clients can view published 3D scenes in a fully customizable browser interface without acquiring additional software. IMAGINE Virtual Delivery is available in three tiers: personal, departmental and enterprise. Capabilities unique to IMAGINE Virtual Delivery include: real-time interactive web browsing of geographical relationships and large-scale 3D visualization; GIS layer support enabling the creation of scenes using Digital Elevation Models (DEMs), draped rasters and vectors, annotation layers and other elements; and exploration and analysis tools such as navigation with mouse or keyboard, overview map detailing camera position and orientation, distance measurements along 3D surface, custom animations and automatically predefined "fly to" points.
