Spatial Indexing - Beta Feature

By default, pano icons are loaded in progressive order within SiteView because pano information is loaded progressively as well. If SiteView has thousands (ie: tens of thousands) of panos, user will see this as panos loading on the reference plan sequentially. This results in a long time to load the panos on the reference plan in SiteView.

Spatial indexing pre-records all pano spatial information so when a SiteView is initialized, panos appear on the reference plan almost instantly.

Access Spatially Indexed SiteView

To open a spatially indexed SiteView:

  1. From the Project Center, navigate to SiteViews > Click SiteView name > SiteView Info Menu
  2. Scroll to the bottom and click Open with Indexed Capture.

If any edits are made to an area in a SiteView (ie: a capture is moved to a different level or capture), the SiteView will need to be re-indexed with the updated information.

Note: Spatial indexing is currently a Beta feature. Please note that due to this feature being in development, sometimes errors in re-indexing SiteView panos may occur. At this time, do not use spatial-indexing on critical projects.


Note: Both Admins and users can access and re-index SiteViews.

Re-index a SiteView

You can re-index the SiteView either through the project center or by opening the SiteView.

From the Project Center

To re-index a SiteView in the project center:

  1. From the Project Center, navigate to SiteViews > Click SiteView name > SiteView Info Menu
  2. Scroll to the bottom and click Reindex Capture Data.

From the SiteView

To re-index a SiteView by accessing it:

  1. Open the spatially-indexed version of the SiteView, and Rebuild Spatial Index window will automatically appear.
  2. Within the Rebuild Spatial Index window, click Rebuild and reload.

Whichever method you use, the CupixWorks server will re-index all pano data, and the updates will be applied immediately.
