Engineering-grade AR for AEC

Leading high-accuracy augmented reality system built for architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC).

Augmented reality app BIM, GIS, Reality Capture, Esri, Bentley, Autodesk


Prevent errors that lead to project delays and cost overruns by using engineering-grade augmented reality to validate designs in a real-world context on a one-to-one scale.

Display CAD, BIM, GIS, and 3D scan data as augmented reality overlays with centimeter-level accuracy to validate as-built. Document problems and work in progress with built-in data collection, 3D scanning, and other productivity tools.

Use your existing positioning and visualization equipment—GNSS and total stations, Android and iOS devices, or even the futuristic Microsoft HoloLens—to streamline deployments and reduce costs.

Why vGIS Augmented reality?

vGIS accepts traditional BIM and GIS files (IFC, DWG, DXF, and many others) or pulls data dynamically from Autodesk Build (BIM 360), Bentley iTwin, Esri ArcGIS, and other repositories to create accurate Augmented Reality (AR) views of surrounding infrastructure on the project site.

When combined with common platforms like Autodesk Build and Esri ArcGIS, vGIS automatically incorporates all changes in the AR view as your data changes at the source.

Displaying the current and proposed models as 3D objects in AR gives you a better understanding of your surroundings, increases productivity, helps validate accuracy, reduces errors, and provides a safer work environment.

A few of the many reasons to deploy vGIS:

  • Visuals with centimeter-level accuracy
  • Automated data workflows with Autodesk, Bentley, and Esri platforms
  • Broad compatibility with off-the-shelf commercial hardware
  • Complete productivity workflows
  • Data collection and 3D scanning tools
  • Remote assistance capabilities

vGIS Construction Users

Construction companies and Engineering design firms (AEC) use vGIS AR to help their engineers, field supervisors, field workforce, project managers and others gain clarity and direction for the work at hand.

Organizations use vGIS to detect design errors and avoid design clashes, as well as collaborating with project teams on job sites. Contractors rely on vGIS to reduce delays and speed up work.
