High Resolution Imagery and Elevation Layers for Globe Projects
TerraBuilder 7.2 supports the loading of higher resolution layers with a units per pixel (UPP) limit of 1.8 cm, a significant resolution improvement from the previous limit of 7.46 cm. TerraBuilder 7.2's support for higher resolution imagery and elevation layers, including high-resolution Orthophoto, DSM, and DTM produced by PhotoMesh, enables the creation of higher quality globe MPT databases.
The new TerraBuilder now utilizes the GDAL v3 engine for improved raster layer support.
TerraBuilder plug-ins allow TerraBuilder to read an extensive range of imagery and elevation formats and reproject data to a vast number of coordinate systems. The 7.2 plug-in updates are critical for reducing security vulnerabilities, ensuring compatibility and fixing bugs. Many of the plug-ins utilize the updated GDAL 3.0 library for reading data formats.
SGS Custom Authentication
TerraBuilder now supports a login to SkylineGlobe Server that uses a fully customized authentication and authorization system. This release also includes fixes to the SkylineGlobe Server login mechanism.
TerraBuilder 7.2 API supports the loading of layers from SGS using the project.layers.InsertLayer method.
Bug Fixes and Improved Stability
This release improves overall stability and performance, and provides several bug fixes including the following:
- Better error handling for coordinate systems
- Prevent infinite call loops to server for blocks with errors
