TerraLens Creator™ is an advanced map styling and packaging toolkit which allows users to identify a geographical area or operational theatre, and quickly assemble all of the map data and assets required to display appropriately populated maps of the area at the desired level of detail.
In addition to assembling map data, TerraLens creator allows operators to fully customize the presentation and styling of the maps, and to add additional mark-up and symbology.
The Asset Library Browser built into TerraLens Creator makes it easy to find and manage map assets. The application includes integrated tools to search and catalogue assets locally and remotely. When working with vector maps with multiple layers, map features are automatically listed and displayed. TerraLens Creator also includes a preview window that previews map assets – making it easy to evaluate assets at a glance. All metadata related to map assets are catalogued and stored in the TerraLens Creator Library Database for future retrieval.
In addition to styling and packaging map assets, you can use TerraLens Creator to add metadata to map data, and link images, documents and videos to map entities. TerraLens Creator allows you to assemble these assets as part of your application package.
Once you are satisfied with the operational map data you have assembled and customized, TerraLens Creator makes it easy to deploy a playlist-style application package, or “mission pack” of maps, either as a locally-stored repository for use on mobile devices, or for consumption via a map tile server like TerraLens Server.
TerraLens Creator also lets you to define multiple themes or configurations for the same maps and assets, so the same assets can be visualized with “day” and “night” styles or with and without terrain elements.
The Rules interface gives operators control over the presentation of virtually every stylesheet-accessible display attribute for maps and map assets, in an easy-to-use visual interface.
The TerraLens Creator Rules system also allows operators to share, import, and export rules – making it easy to implement uniform standards for map display.
