Overview Key Features Specifications Resources

With Engage3D’s interactive user interface and real-time preview, gridded surface creation has never been easier. Use any of the numerous surface utilities and appearance controls for truly advanced visualisation and analysis.

Send any map window view into 3D at a constant Z-level or drape it over a gridded surface, then create and playback fly-through animations to give presentations an exciting extra dimension.

In addition to a powerful 3D capability, Engage3D provides an extensive range of 2D tools that make it the must have productivity boost for MapInfo Professional.

Create Surfaces (Grids)

Create continuous surfaces from point or polygon data for advanced data visualisation and analysis.

Engage3D grid creation includes:

  • Interactive user interface with real-time preview
  • Simultaneous gridding of multiple input fields
  • Optimal parameter selection
  • Data conditioning and coincident point options
  • Advanced statistical analysis of input data
  • Breakline support (some algorithms)
  • Smoothing and clipping options

Grid Utilities

Use the extensive range of powerful Engage3D grid utilities to alter, repair and analyse your gridded surfaces. Classify, clip, convert, create RGB images, calculate curvature, edit cell values, fill holes, flip, merge, stamp in vector values, resample, reproject, rotate, shift, vectorise, compute volume and calculate view-sheds, all via an interactive user interface with real-time preview of results.

Upgrade to Engage3D Pro

Upgrade to Engage3D Pro to harness the power of ultra-detailed LIDAR topographic data on your desktop, such as for flood or fire risk analysis. Interpolate very large topographic grids from multiple input data files, such as LIDAR LAS, ASCII, TAB point and contour files.

Engage3D Pro allows the user to accurately digitise, model and experiment with their interpretations directly within the 3D environment. The user is therefore able to model and extrapolate pollution volumes, potential extensions and ‘what-if?’ scenarios.
