Seen this Tongue Map before?

Trying to navigate the sense of taste with a map of the tongue labeled with regions sensitive to four kinds of flavor would be like trying to drive cross-country with a map that did not show the Interstate System. Follow this link if you would like to read more about this….

So, what has the tongue map got to do with this blog? Well, everything and nothing…. The only thing common is around the term “mapping”.  Numerous people have suggested that I post a mapping of the PTC Visualization products and writing this blog post reminded me of the tongue mapping article I had seen a while ago…

CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm announces a new white paper examining PTC’s enterprise solution for validation and review, PTC Creo View.


Once the private domain of design and manufacturing engineers, digital data content has become an essential factor in the interactions and decision-making of a broad range of enterprise-wide product contributors. PTC Creo View technology, which is the basis of a comprehensive Enterprise Validation and Review solution, supports visualization of and interaction with product models. It delivers a scalable visual collaboration and digital mockup capability for product data that can be deployed throughout the enterprise. Dr. Versprille states that “Product visualization gives all stakeholders access to the product’s single source of truth.” CIMdata reviews the capabilities of PTC Creo View and its ability to pair mechanical and electronic product data for full product visualization and interaction. Highlights include PTC Creo View’s support for a Model-based Enterprise strategy and its strong interference analysis and animation capabilities.

“PTC Creo View” is available to be freely downloaded from CIMdata’s Publications web page.

Bark? Cambium? No, Its the HeartWood (Want to learn more about the Tree Anatomy? check this out).  Wondering why I’m talking about Trees? Although I don’t have a doctorate in Plant Sciences, Trees are not only part of the plant kingdom but also of the “Visualization” kingdom. And, given that I live and breathe Visualization, I wanted to write about this feature – i.e. “Center in Tree” in PTC Creo View.  Click here for more information or scan this QR code on your mobile device
