The latest release delivers faster and more powerful 3D visualization and analysis capabilities.
Luciad 2020 is a significant update to its platform for building advanced location intelligence and real-time, situational awareness applications. It delivers even faster and more powerful 3D visualization and analysis capabilities. It also extends the portfolio with LuciadCPillar, an API for C++ and C# developers to incorporate advanced geospatial visualization and analysis into their applications.
Hexagon’s Luciad portfolio allows developers to create powerful, high-performance applications that leverage data from any source for visualization and analysis in 2D and 3D. Combining static, dynamic and real-time data, including moving tracks, Luciad-powered applications support defense, aviation, infrastructure and other critical sectors.
For the 2020 release of LuciadRIA, which is used for building browser-based solutions, Hexagon has added interactive model placement, interactive mesh operations and additional capabilities for viewing and analyzing infrastructure in 3D. The seamless 3D experience is powered by a new 3D tiling engine that has been added to LuciadFusion, the server solution, and LuciadLightspeed, which is used for building desktop and on-board applications. The tiling engine turns models and large 3D datasets into streamable 3D tiles.
The release contains other new features requested by customers, including a new dedicated LuciadLightspeed view for JavaFX for an optimized development experience, Multinational Geospatial Co-production Program support and Significant Weather Data visualization for aviation.
