Functional Specifications
Below is a high-level, non-exhaustive overview of the components available in LuciadRIA. You can use the functionality of these components either out-of-the-box or extend them to meet your advanced requirements.

Model any data format, load big data intelligently, load data asynchronously (Ajax), and represent complex geodetic object geometries with their metadata. Supported geometries include points, polylines, polygons, circles, ellipses, circular arcs, elliptical arcs, circular arc bands and buffers.

Visualize data in a multi-layered view. Apply flexible styling (icons, line styles, fill styles, transparency...), and create extremely versatile labels, with options for multi-line and multi-style labels, label graphics, and decluttering. High-performance imagery rendering, using multi-leveling and tiling techniques, is integrated in the view. User navigation direction is available.

Ready-to-use controller functionality includes standard controls (zoom, pan, select), freehand drawing, editing, multi-touch support (including Microsoft Pointer events and Gesture events) and snapping. You can easily create other controllers for custom interaction.

Perform on-the-fly map transformations in the browser. Visualize data in any EPSG map projection. Visualize accurate geodetic lines.

Data Connectors
Access both raster and vector data through common data exchange standards (see ‘Formats & Standards’).

Display ICAO symbology and dynamic tracks. Optimize the performance and bandwidth usage of your web applications.

Grid Layer
High performance support for the display of a longitude / latitude grid on the map.

Vertical View
A Cartesian view with the ability to display any kind of quantitative data (e.g., altitudes, distances, speed values). This view can be configured with a reference that displays these quantities in a certain unit of measure (e.g., flight level, meters, nautical miles). A wide range of customizing options is available for the annotation of the view axes. A concrete example of this view is provided in the form of a vertical view.

Optional Components

Military Symbology
Client-side creation, visualization and editing of all tactical graphics from the MS2525 and APP-6 standards, with configurable and customizable symbol styling and graphics stroking.

In addition to this component, LuciadRIA offers many application capabilities. These are ready-to-use implementations for developers of common use cases in your domain. These application capabilities are supported by LuciadLightspeed-based services. Below is a non-exhaustive overview:

  • Gazetteer search
  • Real-time track display
  • Annotation drawing and sharing
  • Flexible UI widget system (Dojo)
  • Application state store and restore
  • Google Web Toolkit (GWT) integration
  • LuciadLightspeed data support through GeoJSON services
  • LuciadLightspeed symbology service for military icons
  • LuciadLightspeed track service

LuciadRIA’s visualization and analysis capabilities are data-agnostic and complementary with any data format. Through LuciadLightspeed, all data formats supported by LuciadLightspeed are available for applications based on LuciadRIA. In addition, the following data formats, services and standards are supported natively in LuciadRIA:
