View your spatial data using the free CARIS viewer. Easy View allows users to view spatial data from a wide range of file types without the need for specialized software.
Easy View gives users control of the data. Users can open and interact with any number of sources including DTMs, raster images and charts, point clouds, variable resolution surfaces and vector data sources such shapefiles and Electronic Nautical Charts (ENC). The order they are drawn can be adjusted, and the display parameters for each layer can be customized. Users can also make selections and query layers in both 2D and 3D for additional analysis of the data.
Using the 3D visualization engine, users can effectively inspect data from every angle using various visualization, surface draping and filtering techniques. While navigating through the data users can record fly-throughs and export the recordings as movie files.
With Easy View users can easily view, analyze and share their spatial data.
New Features in version 6
Here are the top new features in the latest release of Easy View
Flexible Interface for Organizing and Interacting with Data
