Adding Markups

Markups allow you to annotate screenshots of the digital twin by using built-in drawing tools such as text, arrows, and shapes. Markups are a great way to clarify issues and annotations in SiteView.

Add Markup

Markups are organized within annotation groups, which are folders that contain annotations, forms, and other markups related to the same issue. To add markups, make sure there is an annotation group available. Annotation groups will be listed in the Annotations menu on the left of the SiteView window.

Add Annotation Group

If there is no annotation group, or you would like to create a new one:

  1. Click Add Group.
  2. Give the annotation group a name and click Done.
    Note: Due to changing site conditions, an annotation group is not displayed or accessible from captures taken on other dates or levels within the SiteView.

Add Markup

To add a markup to a group:

  1. Click the group name.
  2. Click the Add Annotation icon > Markup.
  3. Type the name of the new markup and click Next.
  4. A screenshot of what is currently shown in the 360° photo viewer will be displayed in the markup wizard.

    From the toolbar at the bottom, you can add text, shapes, arrows, and freehand in different colors, line types, and line weights.

  5. Once you are finished editing the photo, click Save in the upper right corner to finalize your markup.
    You will see the saved markup image displayed over the digital twin viewer, and the markup information will be displayed on the Annotations menu.
  6. Click the X next to the annotations search bar at the top or click Close at the bottom to close the markup and return to the Annotations menu.

How Markups are Displayed

Markup information, including the markup creator and update time, will be displayed in the left hand Annotations menu.

In the 3D digital twin, your markup will be displayed as a gray pin with a markup icon at the top. The markup pin will be viewable and accessible from the 360° photos surrounding the location where the markup was created. Markups are also displayed on the reference plan as a gray markup icon at their location of creation.

Note: Markups are not displayed or accessible from captures taken on other dates or levels within the SiteView.
