Image Viewer is Z/I Imaging’s low-cost, high-powered solution for displaying
orthophotos and other preprocessed (for instance, map-registered) binary, gray
scale, or color raster imagery. Image Viewer provides several easy-to-use image
viewing and management tools for MicroStation® and MGE users who require
economical and efficient image backdrop display for screen-based digitizing and
Image Viewer, a true MDL application, provides full vector graphics and
raster image integration with MicroStation. Available on Microsoft Windows, it
runs in standalone mode with MicroStation; as a modular image display component
alongside Intergraph’s Modular GIS Environment (MGE); or with other Intergraph
and third-party scanning, utilities, civil engineering, and mapping products.
Orthophoto Viewing and Exploitation
Image Viewer is an ideal imaging platform for heads-up digitizing and map
creation or revision, using digital orthophotos, orthorectified satellite
imagery, scanned maps, or other map-registered continuous-tone raster files.
With its sophisticated tiled data structure, which includes image pyramids and
image compression support, and flexible input of industry-standard raster
formats, Image Viewer easily and rapidly quickly and manipulates even the
largest of image data sets.
Standalone Image Display
Image Viewer, combined with MicroStation, provides a complete standalone
image display and vector/map editing platform. With Image Viewer’s tools for
importing and enhancing raster imagery and MicroStation’s vector graphics
capabilities, you have everything you need for integrating raster imagery and
As a component of a larger distributed imaging solution, Image Viewer
provides a low-cost-per-seat, MicroStation-based image viewing platform. In this
environment, preprocessed imagery (produced using image processing or digital
photogrammetry production platforms) can be efficiently disseminated and
exploited across an entire imaging or GIS/automated mapping department.
