In this article, you will learn about the three options that you can find in the viewer (the cube, the map and the performance indicator).


First, open the Options menu by clicking on the 6 dot icon.

The cube :

By default, the cube is not displayed, click on the cube icon to show / hide it.

The cube lets you know from where you are looking at the point cloud, it also allows you to easily navigate around it, just click on one of the faces of the cube, you can also click on the edges and corners .


The map :

By default, the map is displayed in the viewer, you can toggle it using the map icon.

The map allows you to locate yourself within the project, you can see a blue point in the middle representing your position and 5 yellow lines representing your field of vision. You also have a top view of your point cloud. The point cloud is cut at the level of your camera, this allows you to see exactly where you are if you are in a building for example. You can change the size of the map by dragging its edges and you can zoom in / out using your scroll wheel while having your mouse over the map.


The performance indicator:

By default, the performance indicator is enabled and displays your FPS rate (frame per second), a good FPS rate allows you to navigate smoothly in the viewer, a low value is often a sign of a device in difficulty. In this case you may have to reduce the number of points and their quality in order to regain performance. For more information on viewer settings, see the article on appearance settings.


If you click on the performance indicator, you will be able to see other values such as your ping (response time between your computer and the server), your memory usage and your internet speed (experimental, the data may not be be very precise).


You can save the state of these options by going to the settings menu and saving the viewer's settings. This means that every time you come into this project, you can decide which options you want to display by default, these options are saved for each project and is personal to each account, 2 different users can save 2 different settings for the same project regarding their needs.


In case of problem or difficulty, do not hesitate to contact the platform team.
