OHM Advisors, an award-winning community advancement firm, equips its multidisciplinary experts with cutting-edge holographic technology. Commencing the roll-out with a pilot project, OHM Advisors plans to fully deploy the system before the end of 2017.
“Meemim’s holographic vGIS will help OHM Advisors take our ideas further from visionary to achievable. This is what we at OHM Advisors like to call thinking differently.”
Michael Cousins, GIS Manager, OHM Advisors
OHM Advisors’ passion for people is the driving force behind their mission-driven innovative solutions that make an impact for the greater good. This is not an easy mission to achieve. To create better places for people, its team of experts must consider a variety of economic, social, geographic, and environmental factors from different, holistic perspectives. The Meemim vGIS system is expected to help advance the firm’s goal of taking ideas from visionary to achievable.
vGIS combines information from multiple sources to visualize infrastructure and 3D geotagged objects – buildings, LiDAR scans, maps, and more – as 3D holograms. These holograms can be viewed by multiple users simultaneously, an approach similar to a multiplayer game, which simplifies client walk-throughs by giving clients an unparalleled view of the project.
Having received numerous prestigious industry awards – including the prestigious ACEC/Michigan Firm of the Year designation – OHM Advisors is recognized for its excellence in building alliances between the managing agency, the consultant, and contractors. To further the mission of elevating this collaborative approach, OHM Advisors will use holographic technology to share visions with clients, providing clients a greater understanding of projects through interactive holograms powered by GIS data.
Meemim vGIS system is the first of its kind. Using the Microsoft HoloLens, Microsoft Azure cloud-services and Esri ArcGIS software, the system conveys in-the-field and real-time holographic visualizations of serviceable objects. Applications include infrastructure, above- and below-ground pipes, cables or valves, and their supporting data. Meemim vGIS features to-scale infrastructure, real-time holographic 3D maps, and collaboration tools.
OHM Advisors recognizes that every client relationship is personal, and every solution is site-specific. Interactive holograms overlaid with “what-if” scenario handling will deliver just that; a custom-tailored view of each site reviewed in a personal setting with each client.
