VCT shows footprints of all maps and images that are available on your network on either a World Map, CADRG or CIB background. The VCT is used to easily locate and select data to load in to the geospatial tool for further exploitation or production.

  • SOCET for ArcGIS
    SOCET for ArcGIS is the modern, rigorous approach that enables GIS practitioners who need accurate and complete features to work in the ArcMap environment, with stereoscopic viewing of imagery and full 3-D capabilities, while the photogrammetric operations go on behind the scenes.
