SpacEyes 3D Plugin & SDK

Integrate SpacEyes3D technology in your applications

Develop customized 3D visualization interfaces, integrate 3D real time display in your GIS applications, perform a 3D Web cartographic portal… SpacEyes3D SDK allows to use all the SpacEyes3D technology to perform innovative 3D solutions!

3D Web Portal: Basic API allows to integrate SpacEyes3D Plugin in a web application by customizing the interface with a specific graphic chart

Touch screen 3D interactive terminal: Basic API allows to develop an interface completely customized with an ergonomics adapted to the touch screen technology.

Wiki 3D: Pro API allows to develop advanced 3D web applications integrating tools of selection, creation and edition. The functions of synchronisation allows to coordinate the data in real time with a centralized server of spatial data.

Spaceyes 3D Plugin & SDK in Details

SpacEyes3D Software Development Kit (SpacEyes3D SDK) allows to develop third party applications based on the component SpacEyes3D Plugin.

SpacEyes3D Plugin

SpacEyes3D Plugin is a component based on SpacEyes3D Viewer technology, and is made to include SpacEyes3D technology in a desktop application or in a Web application.

SpacEyes3D Plugin is made to open and to visualize 3D projects made with SpacEyes3D Builder under SpacEyes3D SDKlicense.

SpacEyes3D Plugin can be integrated in two forms:

  • An ActiveX component that can be embedded in any Windows application supporting this technology independently of the programming language (for example C#, C++, Visual Basic, Python).
  • Plug-in dedicated to Internet browsers (Internet Explorer, FireFox, Chrome) that allows the integration in a Web application (JavaScript).

Spaceyes3D Plugin includes an API (Application Programming Interface) that allows to develop customized applications based on SpacEyes3D technology.

Basic API and Pro API

SpacEyes3D Plugin offers two levels of API according the chosen license: Basic API and Pro API.


Basic API allows to develop customized applications of 3D vizualisation thanks to simple functions to control SpacEyes3D projects: layer management, access to thematic views, scene management, selection of 3D objects…

Pro API allows to develop advanced 3D applications thanks advanced functionalities to control SpacEyes3D projects:  acquisition and drawing of 3D markers, extraction of GIS data, synchronisation with spatial database servers, SQL requests…
