Uploading NavVis Datasets

If you have processed your data with the NavVis Desktop Processing Software, you can upload the following files to NavVis IVION:
  • Individual datasets: You can upload individual .nvd datasets from the datasets_web folder.

  • Alignment .xml files: If you want to include control point information in your site, you can upload alignment .xml files generated in the datasets_web folder during processing.

  • Bundle files: You can upload bundle files in .xml or .json format from other instances generated in the datasets_web folder during dataset alignment.

Follow these steps to upload processed NavVis datasets to your site:

  1. Go to Site Setup > Dataset Management.
  2. Click Upload bundle or dataset.
  3. Select the file(s) you want to upload from your computer.
    Individual datasets will be listed under Datasets Without Bundle. Bundle files will be listed under Alignment Bundles.

Adding Datasets to the Database#

After you have uploaded datasets to NavVis IVION, you have to add the datasets to the site's database.

Follow these steps to add datasets to the database:

  1. Go to Site Setup > Dataset Management.
  2. Find the dataset(s) that you want to add to the database. If you uploaded datasets individually, they will be listed under Datasets Without Bundle. If you uploaded datasets as part of a bundle, they will be listed under Alignment Bundles.
    Tip: You can tell which datasets have been added to the database by looking at which action is available for them. A + button means the dataset is not in the database and can be added, while a - button means it is in the database and can be removed.
  3. Click on the + button next to the dataset you want to add to the database. A dialog opens asking you to choose the coordinate system for your dataset.
  4. Select Site coordinate system to import the dataset into the previously defined coordinate system.
  5. Select Pick location on map to choose a new location for the dataset.
    1. Click Next.
    2. Pick a location for the dataset on the map. Search for an address or coordinates and, if necessary, adjust the location of the location picker.
  6. Click Import.

Removing Datasets from the Database#

Follow these steps to remove datasets from a site's database:
  1. Go to Site Setup > Dataset Management.
  2. If the dataset is part of an alignment bundle, click the pencil button next to the bundle and remove the dataset.
  3. If the dataset is not part of an alignment bundle, click the - button next to the dataset.

Deleting Datasets from the Database#

Follow these steps to delete datasets from a site's database:
  1. Go to Site Setup > Dataset Management.
  2. If the dataset is part of an alignment bundle, click the pencil button next to the bundle and remove the dataset.
  3. If the dataset is not part of an alignment bundle, click the - button next to the dataset to remove it from the database.
  4. Click the bin button next to the dataset to delete it.
