A Publication is an organized and formal way to share Resources with a large number of users. It is a user-friendly way of sharing resources with co-workers, other organizations, or the public at large. It is an easy to use alternative to the sharing of individual Resources with Named Users. Publications are much faster to get started. They give access to all relevant resources at once, so it is never needed to select each individual resource again.
Publications are a well-prepared combination of one or more Resources and an adapted user interface.

First, a Publication must be created. Next, a range of setup parameters can be specified and last, set up to share the Publication.
Publications can be created and managed by Resources Managers only.
Once a Publication is created, it is possible to set Guest User preferences and limit the Viewer capabilities to create a simplified user interface.
Edits are saved and applied immediately. The list of Setup parameters will grow over time.
Once a Publication is set, it is ready to be shared with Named Users and Guest Users or Teams.
Each Publication has a unique URL formed by the prefix “https://3dmapping.cloud/publication/” and a unique Token.
Tokes are especially useful when sharing Publications with Guest Users and accessing Publications from the SDK. The Viewer embedded via SDK provides a specific Token entry field to directly launch a Publication. A developer can also Preset the Token for a specific implementation.
