What’s new in Oriented Imagery 2.5
Oriented Imagery 2.5 includes a variety of enhancements across the solution—
The Oriented Imagery add-in for ArcGIS Pro now includes:
- Support for viewing your oriented imagery in a 3D scene (ArcGIS Pro 2.6+)
- The option to click on an exposure point to view the image
- The ability to add an oriented imagery catalog to your map from the Catalog pane (ArcGIS Pro 2.6+)
- A default minimum viewing scale set to exposure points and the coverage map (if it’s not set manually)
With the Oriented Imagery 2D and 3D web apps, users now have the option to:
- Click on a photo location to view that image
- View exposure points as the coverage area if no coverage map exists
- Use a coverage map that has a minimum scale set by default
