Viewing the Capture Detail Page



From the Capture Detail Page, you can:

  • View a table showing all of the captures for a specific project.
  • View capture areas on a reference plan exactly as they were marked in the Capture App.
  • See the capture method used, number of panos, processing status, and the SiteView settings (publishing, measurement readiness) for each area.
  • Publish each area and enable measurement readiness in SiteView quickly from one location.
  • Select specific areas to open and edit within the Capture Editor. 
  • Upload image files as new Areas to a capture.

To view detailed information on a capture area:

  1. Navigate to the Project Center, and click Captures.
  2. Double-click the name of the capture you want to view.

This will open the Capture Detail Page, which displays the following information:

  • A Reference Plan showing the Capture App-specified locations of each area at the top
  • The Area List at the bottom
  • The Area Properties Menu on the right

Change Capture Date

If you started a capture on one date but finished on another, the capture date at the top of the column will show the older one. To change to the newer date:

  1. Click on the capture date at the top of the table.
  2. If not already enabled, click on the Info about the selected item icon  .
  3. Click on the Edit button.
  4. Click in the date field, then change the date as needed. Optionally, add a Label.
  5. Click on the Save button.

Delete and Move Capture Date

If you need to combine captures from several dates:

  1. Click on the date you want to move and delete so that it is highlighted in green.
  2. Click on the Delete selected item icon  at the top right.
  3. Click on Move all areas in this capture to another capture first.
  4. Click on the Capture Date you want it moved to.
  5. Click on the Confirm button.

Reference Plan Overview

The reference plan occupies the top of the Capture Detail Page. Areas uploaded from the Capture App or with Capture App data are shown as icons located at the initial position of the capture, as they were marked on the reference plan in the Capture App. Areas that are not captured using the Capture App will not be displayed on the reference plan.

Using the Reference Plan

This reference plan behaves similarly to the reference plans displayed in the Capture and Level Editors and SiteView. You can perform the following actions on the reference plan to gain a better understanding of the area locations:

  • Pan the reference plan by clicking and dragging.
  • Reset zoom using the Reset Zoom button in the bottom right.
  • Zoom in and out using the mouse scroll wheel or the + and - buttons in the bottom right of the reference plan.
  • Resize the reference plan window by clicking and dragging the divider at the bottom of the reference plan.

Change Reference Plan

To view a different reference plan for the current level:

  1. Click on the drop-down menu in the bottom left of the reference plan.
  2. Select the name of the reference plan you would like to display.

Area List

The area list is located below the reference plan and tabulates all areas on the currently selected level within this capture. These areas include those created and uploaded from the Capture App, and areas created from images and videos taken without the Capture App and directly uploaded to the capture.

Viewing Areas or Reality Captures

Areas and point cloud files are further separated. To switch between the area and point cloud lists, click the List areas created from panos or List reality captures uploaded from the Cloud Connect desktop app icons at the top of the area list next to the Level drop-down.

Area List Overview

The area list displays the name of the area, the capture mode used (including Capture App Not Used), the recording size /number of panos within the area, the team member who created the area, the date and time of upload, and the processing status.

Each area's SiteView publication status and measurement readiness are also directly shown with colored toggles on the right. When the toggle is in blue, the area is published or set to 'Measure Ready' in SiteView, and when the toggle is grey, the area is not published or set to 'Measure Ready'.

Clicking on an area in the area list will display this information in the area properties menu on the right. In addition to this, each area's unique ID is displayed below the Measure Ready toggle in this menu.

Open Area Properties Menu

If the area properties menu is not shown on the right, you can display it by clicking the Info about the selected icon button in the upper right.

Edit Area Information

You can edit an area's name, level, and associated capture. To do so:

  1. From the reference plan or area list, click the icon or row corresponding to the area you want to change to open the area properties menu on the right.
  2. In the properties menu under the Info tab, click Edit.
  3. From the Edit Properties menu, you can type in a new name and select a different level or capture from their corresponding drop-down menus.
  4. Once you are finished with your changes, click Save.

SiteView Settings

CupixWorks allows you full control over specific areas to display in SiteView, as well as which areas SiteView users can take measurements from. In the Capture Detail Page, you can publish areas to make them available in SiteView, and you can set them as 'Measurement Ready', which allows SiteView users to take measurements within those areas. These SiteView settings can also be quickly disabled from the Capture Detail Page.

To enable or disable Publish and Measurement Ready for each area:

  1. From the reference plan or area list, click the icon or row corresponding to the area you want to change to open the area properties menu on the right.
  2. Click the toggles next to Publish and Measure Ready to enable (blue) or disable (grey) them in SiteView.
Note: Areas created in Single-Shot Mode do not have the option of being set to measure ready. To take measurements, an area needs to have more than one pano in the same space. Single-Shot areas only have one pano each, and the ability for the user to position them on the reference plan means the CupixWorks algorithm does not process the spatial location of the single pano relative to other panos in the same capture.

Changing the Level

To view a different level within the current capture:

  1. Click the Change Level button above the area list.
  2. Select the level you would like to view.

Uploading Areas

To upload 360° image or 360° video files to create a new area within the current capture:

  1. Click the Upload Image Files button above the area list.
  2. Type in the name of the new area, then click Next.
  3. Select the level to upload the new area to, then click Next.
    Note: If the area that you are uploading is on a different floor from the currently displayed Capture Detail Page, you will need to switch to the new area's floor after your upload to view the area.
  4. Click Choose Files, select up to 400 pano images, or one 360° time-lapse video with up to 900 frames.
  5. Click Next.
  6. Make sure name, selected level, and number of files for the new area is accurate, then click Upload.
