Presagis application programming interfaces (APIs) are a quick and easy means of accessing and extending OpenFlight's geometry, attribution, and palette information. The API also facilitates the development of specialized tools and utilities to augment the set of powerful general-purpose modeling tools in Creator. Levels and highlights of the OpenFlight API include the following:
OpenFlight Read/Write API
Read, write, convert, or load OpenFlight data in a native, consistent, and efficient way.
OpenFlight Extensions API
Extend the nodes or palettes of the file formats in OpenFlight to support IG-specific and application specific features.
OpenFlight Tools API
With OpenFlight Tools API, you can register and plug-in code for your unique tools or algorithms. In addition, plug-in code can take advantage of the 3D rendering, GUI, database tools, and other features in Creator.
