How to publish cloud project


To make cloud project available for visualization in web-interface it is necessary to publish it. Publication is a process of converting processing results from internal Metashape formats to the formats  for 3D visualization in web-interface. The publication is only available for georeferenced .PSX projects. Each publication takes up storage space.


If the Publish results option is checked on when scheduling the first processing of the project in the cloud, results of further processing for the same project will be published automatically. For more information about setting up cloud processing in Metashape refer to: "How to process a project in the cloud" article. 


If the Publish results option is checked out when scheduling the first processing of the project in the cloud, it is possible to publish results via web interface, by selecting Publish option from the project drop-down menu on My Projects page.



Note that 3D models large than 1 GB are not publish because of potential performance issues in web browser. Please build Tiled Models for large datasets visualization in web interface.


Please note that when publication is started, the cloud version of the project is locked and it is not possible to start new processing of the project in the cloud until publication completion.



How to work with the web viewer


When the project is published it is available to view processing results in web-interface, use View button to inspect project results.




How to control processing results visibility


When open the project the active chunk is visible by default. Visibility of single chunks and processing results can be turned on and off by clicking the Eye button in the Layers user interface section.




How to change the base map

To change the base map, click the Map Settings button and select one of available base map. 


 


How to change the view mode


Two view modes are available: 

  • Earth view mode - allowing to view both 3D data and 2D data along with global terrain and base map.
  • Model view mode - allowing to view 3D data.

To change the view mode click the Map Settings button and select one of available view mode.

 



How to work with project cameras


By default project cameras visualization is switched off, click the Eye button near the Cameras object in the Layers user interface section to turn on cameras visualization. Note, that only aligned cameras may be visualized.


To access project photos click on the Cameras object in the Layers user interface section, the Cameras properties interface section containing both with both aligned and not aligned project photos will expand. 


When clicking on the photo thumbnail in the Cameras properties user interface section or on the corresponding camera in the 3D scene, a preview of selected photo with it's parameters appears. To access the source photo in full screen mode, click on the Full Screen button on the photo preview, click the Full Screen button again to exit the mode.
