Object specific configuration (KB-AP034)
By configuring your object layers, you choose how objects appear in the vGIS app. There are four different object types, each of them with specific configuration fields:
Configuring Area Objects
Areas can be used to highlight property coverage and large-scale objects in the vGIS app. With the right configuration, your area objects can highlight flat surfaces or be extruded as 3D prisms.
For more information on the area object configuration settings please follow this link.
Configuring Line Objects
A line object requires you to select one of two object sub-types, you can choose either Pipe or Line. Pipes will appear as 3D cylinder objects in the vGIS app, while Lines will appear as flat 2D objects.
For more information on the line object configuration settings please follow this link.
Configuring Point Objects
A point object can be any object in the real world, such as manhole covers, inlets, street lamps, fire hydrants, etc.
For more information on the point configuration settings please follow this link.
Configuring 3D Model Objects
vGIS can upload complex 3D models, such as buildings and cut-and-fill models, into its AR environment. 3D Model objects will keep the visual configuration from its source and do not need further configuration settings in the Admin Portal.
Please note: 3D models might require elevation settings to be configured correctly. For more information on elevation settings, please review the second section of this document.
