Getting More from Asset Management

Time: Wednesday, July 11, 2018; 2:30 pm- 3:30 pm

Location: SDCC – Room 24 C

vGIS client – City of Auburn, WA – discusses their field deployment of AR/VR for ArcGIS. The Auburn GIS division is taking underground asset management to a new level. Using physical devices like the Microsoft HoloLens and the Apple iPhone, the City is leveraging Mixed Reality technology to expose underground assets to end-users. Staff members are able to remain above ground as they view and interact with those assets using GIS data. Learn where the City got the idea, how the technology is improving their workflows, and what’s on the horizon for the City’s continued GIS innovation.


New vGIS Product Unveiling

In addition to the critically acclaimed vGIS Utilities—an augmented reality GIS application that lets you “see” underground utility infrastructure—we will be unveiling a brand-new system designed specifically for oil and gas companies. vGIS Exploration is a HoloLens-based mixed reality tool for visualizing geology, well structure, production, extraction and seismic events, among other things. Working in conjunction with the ArcGIS back-end, the system improves common analyses and decision-making processes of exploration companies.
