Arkit “Sina”

March 7, 2016 Software Update

This update, nicknamed "Sina", introduces some exciting new mapping capabilities for an even better view of your projects.

Updated maps and styles

We're always working to make Arkit faster and more powerful, and with this release, we've focused on improving our core mapping technology. Project and site maps are now smoother and more responsive as you explore, pan and zoom. We've also added a new control to let you switch between map styles - aerial and road - at any time.

Export site map images

A common features request (we love the feedback, keep it coming!) has been to allow easy downloading of site maps and images. With this release, now you can! When viewing any project, in one click you can export your view of the site map, complete with site drawings, and save it as an image file for use outside Arkit.

Upload custom site imagery (Beta)

Sometimes a project requires custom or extra detailed imagery of a location, and starting with this release, we're excited to share this feature in beta with select users. When viewing any project, you can now upload a GeoTIFF image (.tif, .tiff), and Arkit will process the file to georeference it with the site map. Use the Layers panel in the map toolbar to upload and view custom site imagery. Note that GeoTIFF images for this feature must be less than 50 MB in size, and smaller than 10,000 x 10,000 pixels.

As with all our software updates, there will be new articles added to the Arkit User Guide to explain the new features in more depth.
