  Validation & Verification


In addition to the 2-dimensional animation, which is generated by PedGo, PedView provides the opportunity to visualize the simulated process 3-dimensional. The information of each person is saved in the PedGo-format *.3dl. The advantage of this format over conventional AVI-files is, that they need lower disk space. So these files are much easier to handle. The viewer consists of a standalone executable file and does not need an installation. Furthermore the viewer is very efficient concerning to memory and CPU usage.

The PedView window. The perspective can be easily varied via mouse control.

The handling of PedView is similar to the handling of a mediaplayer. There are, among other things, the functions play, stop, forward und rewind, which let the 3dl-file be treated like a video. During playback it is possible to change the layer and within the layer the perspective is continously adjustable. PedView also allows you to make single screenshots or screenshot series for an additional documentation.

The three-dimensional visualization helps you to keep the overview of a project. To get a better view it is also possible to place and remove external lights.
