- Drag and drop interfaces
- No code connections
- Bidirectional communication
The DiSTI Map Toolkit is a plug-in for the GL Studio editor that allows the development of real-time moving map display applications. The toolkit provides the capability to combine multiple geo-referenced map imagery formats and user defined symbology across multiple layers to produce a single real-time 2D map view. Numerous map imagery formats are supported and new formats are easily added using the plug-in reader architecture.The map imagery dynamically loads into memory as needed, and the toolkit supports various real-time manipulation functions including:
- Layer Visibility
The DiSTI Map Toolkit has full DTED support to enhance the user’s application. DTED data can be used for terrain map viewing or as an overlay to other map types. This feature’s contour lines allow terrain elevations to be easily viewed with overlays. Elevation banding displays safe areas to fly and the threat intervisibility feature alerts the user to where threats lie within the surrounding terrain.
The Data Director seamlessly connects multiple data sources, such as math models or simulation data, to user interface objects with no programming. This tool is ideal for the Human Factors and Prototyping communities because of the ability to quickly connect instrumentation to physical data models in an easy to use GUI environment.The Data Director Toolkit is comprised of a library of common instrument types for out-of-the-box integration, interoperability modules serving as the bridge to connect the properties in the instrumentation, and standard data converters to manipulate data values passing through the tool.
Not only does GL Studio allow users to create Reusable Software Objects (RSOs) proficiently, it offers the ability to integrate those RSOs and other content into the VR-Vantage visual solution. In essence, GL Studio RSOs provide the graphical interface, including graphical overlays and heads-up displays, to MÄK’s Vantage IG. In turn, VR-Vantage seamlessly integrates the display and interaction of RSOs into the rest of a simulation.Various applications use this integration process due to the simplicity of each step. In fact, a GL Studio user can integrate an RSO to VR-Vantage in only a few short steps. By adding a model definition, attaching the RSO to an entity type, viewing the RSO and finally adding simulation data to a heads-up display, the integration is complete.The compatibility between GL Studio and VR-Vantage gives our customers the flexibility and high fidelity that they demand.
