VentusAR 5.4 Released

Today we released VentusAR v5.4 into the app stores.

The release includes many new features, bug fixes and performance improvements across Wind, Grid, Solar and Building domains.

These include 3D building data from Open Street Map now available for alignment in MyView and the addition of ellipses to turbines to help visualise wind turbulence for wind projects (available in FlyThrough)

3D Building data from Open Street Map

3D building data can now be added to MyView for improved alignment process. A new switch has been added to the Right panel to turn on and off 3D building data. When turned on the data is loaded from Open Street Map (and cached on the device for offline usage). The building data responds to opacity and calibration settings.

Ellipse to show turbulence areas around a Turbine

An additional option has been added to show an ellipse around the turbine base to represent the area of turbulence caused by the turbine. The option is available in the Fly Through (by choosing the Show Turbine Ellipses switch. The Ellipse follows the terrain and moves as the turbine moves.

Icelandic and Canadian Projects

New projections have been added to the portal to allow creation of projects in Iceland (using the ISN2004 / Lambert 2004 projection) and in Canada (using NAD83 / Alberta 10-TM (Forest) projection).

As there is no national terrain data available for Iceland and Canada, please contact us if you want to try out these countries.
