Navigating the Reference Plan

When you first load SiteView, the reference plan is displayed in a small pop-up window located in the lower left hand corner of the screen.

Understand the Reference Plan

  • The location of each photo is marked with a gray ring on the reference plan. These are called pano rings. Click on a pano ring to view a photo in a specific location.
  • The 360° photo that is displayed in the viewer is highlighted in orange on the reference plan.

  • The orange pano ring also has an orange radar on it.

  • The cone radar faces the direction you are viewing, and the span of the radar shows the field of view of the displayed photo.

  • The radar rotates as you turn in the 360° photo, and the radar becomes smaller or larger as you zoom in and out of the photo, respectively.
