Hexagon Unveils M.App X 2020
22 january 2020, Apeldoorn, The Netherlands – Latest release delivers 3D display modes and accelerated visualization and analysis for Enhanced Imagery Intelligence.
Hexagon’s Geospatial division, a world leader in location intelligence solutions, has launched M.App X 2020, the latest version of its cloud-deployable enterprise solution for imagery intelligence. It features new capabilities that enable users to more quickly display critical information and view the same map in 2D or 3D for better analysis.
M.App X equips defense and intelligence organizations with tools that make imagery easier to interpret, create intuitive maps for actionable information and centralize geospatial data for instant access across an organization. The latest version adds Hexagon’s LuciadRIA, a high-performance browser solution, as its mapping engine to improve hardware performance and support 2D and 3D displays of the same map.
“For defense and intelligence organizations, the ability to quickly and easily exploit imagery and create imagery-based products is critical to mission success,” said Mladen Stojic, president of Hexagon’s Geospatial division. “With the addition of LuciadRIA, M.App X users can better support mission planning and operations through accelerated imagery visualization and analysis, including in 3D.”
LuciadRIA is a mapping engine that supports 2D and 3D display modes and takes advantage of a system’s graphics processing unit (GPU) for faster and more powerful visualization capabilities. With M.App X 2020, users can now quickly and easily switch between map space, image space and 3D, which increases efficiency and reduces analysis time. In image space, users can present images with the greatest fidelity, while map space enables the application of orthocorrection on the fly (if needed) to display pixels aligned to an earth coordinate system. With 3D, users can drape imagery over the globe, using a terrain model if available.
We are IMAGEM. We are translators and location intelligence is our domain. We translate geospatial data and information in knowledge and insight. With this we will help governments, citizens and stakeholders alike to make the right choices and decisions to have a better grip on the future.
