In our previous blog we introduced the VentusAR cumulative data service and described just how big the dataset is. Now I guess you’re now wondering how you get access to it? It’s simple, and can save you time, effort and money in your everyday work. As a VentusAR customer, you already have the tools to
Another useful feature, that is often overlooked, is the ability to switch on and off terrain masking when in the wireline view. Terrain masking causes objects that are behind hills or other terrain features not to be shown (as they would not be visible!). This makes sense as, if you are at a viewpoint, you would
As part of a license for VentusAR, users have access to our national coverage terrain services. The Ordnance Survey provides the DTM data for terrain services in the UK under the Open Data license. Currently these include OS Terrain 50 and Panorama. However, when assessing a wind project, you may want to use a more detailed
One of the new features we introduced in VentusAR 2.0 was the ability to produce a PDF file to download. The creation of a document makes it easier to share and save the visualisations created by VentusAR. As I have just been out to a viewpoint with VentusAR, I thought I would share the process
VentusAR, like many visualisations systems, uses a bare earth terrain model. This gives some advantages (compliance with SNH guidelines being a big one), but provides a few challenges too. One of the biggest challenges is that you can end up producing visualisations that don’t look right because there are trees between you and the turbine.
Continuing in our posts about the new and important features of VentusAR, the next feature we would like to cover is static renders and their uses. A render is a single shareable image of the visualisation you are seeing on screen. A Better Screenshot tool Pre VentusAR 1.8, we recommended that users took screenshots of the app running,
We thought we would take a few features of VentusAR and provide some detail on how they work and what they can be used for. The second feature we would like to cover is the ability to use Reference Markers, to have confidence that the wireline and camera feed shown on the iPad screen are correctly aligned.
We thought we would take a few features of VentusAR and provide some detail on how they work and what they can be used for. The first feature we would like to cover is reloading altitudes of your objects for display. If you are setting up a project quickly, Terrain50 is available for you to
