View and navigate in the 3D interface

Tip: use your GPU in Chrome to make sure the 3D point cloud interface runs smoothly.

Pan/move the camera

Hold the hotkey (Ctrl/cmd by default) and click and drag, or simply click and drag the right mouse button.

Key panning (only in the perspective view)

Use hotkeys (w, a, s, d, Shift + W, Shift + S by default) to move the camera.
Change the key pan speed in the 3D interface settings.

Panning modes

By default, map panning is enabled, which means the camera pans along the ground plane. E.g. when you pan up by clicking and dragging, or press w, the camera moves forwards.
When screen panning is enabled, the camera moves along the screen (i.e. along the camera plane). E.g. when you pan up by clicking and dragging, or press w, the camera moves up.
You can change the panning mode in the 3D interface settings.

Rotate/orbit the camera in the perspective view

Hold the hotkey (Shift by default) and click and drag.

Change the rotation center point

  • The rotation point is initialized at the center of the point cloud.
  • If you zoom to an object, the rotation point will move to the center of that object.
  • You can manually set the rotation point by middle-clicking on any point of the point cloud. The changed rotation point will then be visible for a short time.

Zoom in/out

Mouse wheel

Scroll using the mouse wheel to zoom in/out.

Double-click (only in orthographic views)

  • Double-click in the viewer to zoom in.
  • Press the hotkey (Shift by default) + double-click in the viewer to zoom out.
