Scan Positions
All scan positions are shown by an icon. Its color varies and can either indicate the elevation of the device that made the scan, or the time that the scan was made (You can set this in the Scan Colorization section of the settings). Below each icon, a label with the scan's name is shown. Because the width of the label is limited, longer names are truncated. You can hover over the label to get a tool-tip with the complete name.
Scan groups
Depending on the resolution in which the Overview Map is shown, scan markers may be merged to groups to keep the Overview Map uncluttered. Groups of scans are shown by a group icon. The color of the icon depends on the height or age of the scans (from red to blue) in the group. If the Individual option is selected in the Scan colorization settings, the average age and height of the included scans is used.
The number in the icon shows the number of scans in the group.
Each scan can be seen by zooming in or selecting the group icon.
When zoomed out, moving the mouse pointer over a group highlights the scan area if Create Scan Overlays was enabled when the SCENE 2go data was created.
Clicking on the scan icon displays the radial menu with a preview

Scan colorization
In this mode, the scan points that the scan contributed to the Overview Map are colored. This feature is only available if it was activated in the project data creation dialog in SCENE.
The color is either based on the recording date of the scan, or on its Z coordinate (elevation), and can be changed in the Overview Map Settings.
Returning from Panorama View or 3D View to the Overview Map
When you return to the Overview Map after viewing a scan in the Scan View, the scan position icon and its label are displayed in orange and a blue triangle shows the angle of view you had before you left the Scan View.

Scan clusters
Depending on the resolution in which the Overview Map is shown, scan markers can be merged to clusters to save space and to keep the overview map uncluttered. Clusters of scans are shown by anicon. The color of the icon depends on the height or age of scans (from red to blue) in the cluster. If the Individual option is selected in the settings, the average age and height of the included scans will be used.
The number in the icon shows the number of scans in the cluster.
Each scan can be seen by zooming in or selecting theicon. When zoomed out, moving the mouse pointer over a cluster highlights the scan area.
You can create:
Point annotations
