    SIGGIS’ Cyclo Mapping tools

    INTRODUCTION SIGGIS has integrated the use of Cycloramas within

    the Esri ArcGIS software. The resulting toolkit is

    called Cyclo Mapping tool.

    Cycloramas are 360 degree panoramic photos taken

    at street-level and are created by CycloMedia

    Technology BV. These photos are made available

    through web services1. Many national institutes,

    regional and local governments, water management

    administrations and utility companies are already

    using Cycloramas. All of these organisations value

    the wealth of visual information. The imagery can be

    used quickly and at the same time allow detailed


    The SIGGIS’ Cyclo Mapping  tool goes even one step further. SIGGIS has integrated the

    GlobeSpotter API from Cyclomedia Technology BV with the Esri ArcGIS software. Thanks to this

    development you can now use the full potential of Cycloramas from within this commonly used

    GIS2  platform. The software allows you to not only survey, but also measure and capture all

    visible elements in the public domain, e.g.:

    -  frontages,

    -  bridges,

    -  trees,

    ... and any other point, line or surface.

    With the Cyclo Mapping tools you will be able to prepare and greatly simplify your fieldwork,

    thus saving on time and distances travelled.

    The toolkit is available as a low-cost extension for ArcGIS Desktop 9.3.1 and 10 and as

    standalone application based on ArcReader.


    Flemish water distributing companies have carried out research in 2010 on the accuracy of

    measurements via Cyclo Mapping tools. The research results confirm that, all while keeping in

    mind some basic principles, the measurement accuracy attained is at least 10 centimetres. This

    toolkit is therefore ideal for applications that involve measuring tree heights and frontages or formaking inventories of parking spaces and public parks.

    Cyclo Mapping / Cyclorama functions

    Retrieving Cyclorama positions

    Taking any street map, the user can request to retrieve the positions of the Cycloramas, which

    typically have an intermediate distance of 5 meters.

    Cyclorama locations displayed on a map. Select two cyclorama placeholdersto view and use the corresponding

    panoramic photos.

    Using two panoramic photos to measure an object

    Select in each photo two identical points. Next the measure tool will calculate the distance

    between the two.

    The window displaying the Cyclorama also allows the user to:

    -  Rotate the view 360°

    Zoom in and out of the panoramic image

    Choose a central or panoramic perspective (ie. Fish-eye or cylindrical respectively)

    -  Print the picture in its original dimensions or scaled

    Save the current view or the full scale picture to a bitmap file (BMP)-  Request meta-information about the currently displayed photos

    Using two panoramic photos to make an asset inventory

    By selecting an identical point in both frames, the application will calculate the geo-coordinates

    of the mutually selected object. The resulting point will subsequently be displayed in the map.

    The coordinates (in ao WGS84, National Grid, RD and Lambert72) and corresponding attributes

    are stored in a Geodatabase of your choice.

    Display your GIS data in the 360° panoramic pictures

    From within ArcGIS, you can now also display your GIS data, such as utility network or

    development plans, within the panoramic photos. This will provide an accurate and natural

    perspective to your data.

    The Cyclo Mapping tools are comprised of several applications.

    The Cyclo Mapping Editor Extension is available as an extension for the Esri ArcGIS Desktopapplications ArcView, ArcEditor, ArcInfo and  ArcGIS Engine. It comes in a Viewer and Editor

    version. Both versions allow the display of Cyclorama images as well as the measurement of any

    visible object in the public domain. Additionally the Editor-version allows you to directly store

    points, lines and polygons in x-y-z-coordinates into your Geodatabase. The visualisation of GIS

    data within the Cyclorama is also possible in the Editor version.

    In addition, SIGGIS offers a standalone (SA) version based on ArcReader, a free application of

    Esri. The Cyclo Mapping Viewer SA provides measuring capabilities, while the Cyclo Mapping

    Editor SA also allows you to define coordinates in x-y-z-coordinate terms and save these in a

    standardized Access databank.

    ArcView, ArcEditor and ArcInfo

    The Cyclo Mapping extension is available as an extension for ArcGIS Desktop 9.3.1 and 10. It canbe used under three license levels; ArcView, ArcEditor and ArcInfo

    With ArcGIS Desktop, you can create maps and alter them. You can view spatial data and then

    edit, analyse and query this data to gain an advanced perspective of how the data interrelates.

    With ArcMap, a component of ArcGIS Desktop, you have the possibility to denote and display

    this data in many different ways. You can generate graphics and reports to share conclusions

    with other interested parties. Additionally, ArcMap has a WYSIWYG3  interface that allows map

    layout adjustments. Finally, ArcGIS Desktop can integrate a wide array of data formats, such as

    shape files, coverages, tables, CAD-drawings, rasters and TINs. For more information about

    ArcGIS Desktop, please visit: 

    ArcGIS EngineThe Cyclo Mapping extension is also available for ArcGIS Engine. ArcGIS Engine is a collection of

    GIS components and developer resources that can be embedded, allowing you to add dynamic

    mapping and GIS capabilities to existing applications or build new custom mapping applications.

    Developers use ArcGIS Engine to deploy GIS data, maps, and geoprocessing scripts in desktop or

    mobile applications using application programming interfaces (APIs) for COM, .NET, Java, and

    SIGGIS can assist your organisation with the integration of any Esri software, including ArcGIS

    Engine. Please check out our company profile at the end of this document and do not hesitate to

    contact us with further inquiries.

    ArcReaderThe Cyclo Mapping standalone is based on ArcReader, a free application of Esri, as well as on

    9.3.1 and 10. ArcReader is a free, easy-to-use desktop mapping application that allows users to

    view, explore and print maps and globes. Anyone with ArcReader can view high-quality

    interactive maps authored by a high-level ArcGIS Desktop product and published with the ArcGIS

    Publisher extension.
