Hexagon Unveils Luciad 2020

20 April 2020, Apeldoorn, the Netherlands – Latest release delivers even faster and more powerful 3D visualization and analysis capabilities

Hexagon’s Geospatial division has launched Luciad 2020, a significant update to its platform for building advanced location intelligence and real-time, situational awareness applications. Luciad 2020 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.

The Luciad 2020 release is a major enhancement, providing significant new capabilities for viewing and manipulating 3D data. And with the addition of LuciadCPillar, we have opened up these tools to an entirely new developer community – one that serves the mission-critical needs of the defence industry and others.

Mladen Stojic, President at Hexagon’s Geospatial divisie

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.
