Menu bar Provides buttons to control FindSurfaceWeb's behavior.
WebGL canvas Visualizes point clouds and geometries.
Information panel Prints geometries' information such as size, position, orientation.

Buttons in the menu bar

Open Point Cloud Data

Open Opens a point cloud file. You may select one of the preset data, which our server provides, or choose your own file (.xyz or .obj) to upload it to the server.
Reset Scene Removes all works done and initializes the point cloud.

Manipulate the view

Normal Disables user mouse events on the WebGL canvas.
Rotate Enables user mouse events on the WebGL canvas, so you can drag your mouse cursor to rotate the point cloud.
Zoom Enables user mouse events on the WebGL canvas, so you can drag your mouse cursor horizontally to zoom in/out the point cloud.
Move Enables user mouse events on the WebGL canvas, so you can drag your mouse cursor to move the point cloud.
Top View Sets the camera to the top view (the camera is located at a point on Y axis).
Front View Sets the camera to the front view (the camera is located at a point on Z axis).
Side View Sets the camera to the side view (the camera is located at a point on X axis).

Info Shows information about this web application.

WebGL Canvas

Unit Frame (Top-Left side of screen) Visualizes the axes of reference frame in model-space coordinates.
Ruler (Bottom-Left side of screen) Provides a visual cue to help users to assume length of the object in a screen to estimate how long it is in a real life.
Geometry mesh A geometry model's mesh that is found by FindSurface.
Geometry inlier points The points that are included by a geometry model.

Information Panel

This panel shows you geometry items that are found by FindSurface. Users can click an item to show the information of the item.

Item Actions

Color Palette Allows users to change the color of a geometry's mesh or inlier points.
Visibility Allows users to show/hide a geometry's mesh or inlier points.
Remove Allows users to remove the mesh and inlier points of a geometry.
