LuciadRIA: Situational Awareness in the Browser


LuciadRIA is the answer to today's demands for powerful, lightweight applications in the browser. Driven by today’s most advanced web technologies, LuciadRIA uses WebGL, HTML5, and JavaScript to deliver desktop-like performance to your web applications.

With LuciadRIA, you can expect high performance and complete accuracy, with desktop-like visualization of satellite and other imagery, vector-based data, and dynamic content, such as tracks. Connect to your data via OGC web services or drag and drop common file formats. Data can be explored in a 2D or 3D map view or vertical intersection view. Combine with a timeline view for 4D analysis.

Focus on Customizability and Integration

LuciadRIA allows you to integrate other Rich Internet Application technologies, such as Google Web Toolkit (GWT) and SharePoint. You can easily develop for networked and cloud-based environments, and LuciadRIA's clean design allows for straightforward creation of interactive browser-based user interfaces, including editing of content and map annotations.

From 2D to 3D with the Click of a Button

Clean design matters. LuciadRIA is the only web-based geospatial solution that allows users to go from 2D to 3D with a simple click, using the same code and the same data, while providing you with a beautiful, intuitive interface.

Fully Leverages HTML5 Technology

Using the full capability of HTML5, LuciadRIA gives users high performance imagery visualization alongside vector-based data and dynamic content such as tracks. You can also rely on the Luciad Portfolio's world-scale precision for visualization, transformation, and calculation of any data.

Accelerated Visualization Done Right

LuciadRIA supports 3D and advanced visualization capabilities thanks to hardware acceleration with WebGL technology. Through a single API, LuciadRIA provides users with the capability to develop applications for software 2D, hardware-accelerated 2D, and hardware-accelerated 3D.

Why Choose Luciad Portfolio's Browser Solution?

These are just a few examples of what users have accomplished with LuciadRIA:

  • Build a standards-based, interoperable web-based solution that handles 2D and 3D.
