You can view the results of location analytics in a three-dimensional (3D) environment. The 3D view gives the user an improved understanding of results, especially with multiple floor paths or when dwell times are calculated throughout a multistory building. The 3D environment presents the same information as the 2D version and is primarily for alternative visualization. The 2D view is currently obtained by enforcing a bird's-eye view in the interface control.
5.4.1 Configuring 3D
As of Cisco MSE Release 7.4, location analytics supports 3D only for building representations using WebGL. This advanced feature requires graphics capabilities (later releases will introduce 2D views based on OpenStreetMaps).
Not all browsers support WebGL on all devices. Check devices and browsers by following these setup suggestions:
Step 1. Test your browser for suitability at http://get.webgl.org/. If the test is successful, you should see a WebGL rotating cube. If the test is not successful, you may be able to update your video driver.
• For Firefox, choose Help >Troubleshooting Information and then scroll down to Graphics and WebGL Renderer. Here you will see whether your system can support WebGL, and if it cannot, what is recommended.
• Other web browsers such as Maxthon have also been successful in running WebGL.
Ideally, the hardware should have a 3D graphics card to help ensure compatibly with WebGL. Most current Macs have graphics cards sufficiently configured to work with Safari. On PCs, the Chrome browser has been the most successful.
5.4.2 Exploring Location Analytics 3D
Follow the steps listed here to use Location Analytics 3D tools.
Step 1. Before exploring location analytics 3D tools, be sure that your system meets these criteria:
• The location analytics feature is installed and configured.
• Sufficient points and devices are present in the device and path database.
