How to Navigate the Plan Viewer

How to Navigate the Plan Viewer


In SiteView, Reference Plans are displayed in the Plan Viewer. 

Note: If you need to open several Reference Plans, you can add more Plan Viewers:

  1. Click on Manage viewers.  
  2. Click on Add Viewer
  3. Click on Plan Viewer.


Panos and Viewports

  • The location of each photo captured (called a pano in SiteView) is marked with a light blue dot  on the Reference Plan. Click on a blue dot to view a pano in a specific location.
  • The pano being displayed in each Capture Viewer is highlighted in orange, pink, green or lighter blue (depending on the amount of Capture Viewers shown).

  • The highlighted pano also has a viewport spreading out from it. This represents the level of zoom selected using the mouse scroll wheel. 

  • The viewport faces the direction you are pointing, and the span of the radar shows the field of view (FOV) of the displayed photo.

  • The viewport rotates as you turn in the pano, and the view becomes smaller or larger as you zoom in and out of the pano, respectively.

  • You might also see Sketch drawings shown in the form of text, polylines, symbols and Room (Sketch or Revit) locations. These graphics are used to make finding and identifying specific 3D spaces easier.

Changing the Reference Plan

To change the reference plan to a different one:

  1. The lower left corner displays the name of the image you are currently using as the reference plan. Click the image name. 
  2. Select the reference plan you want to use from the drop-down list.
