Engineering-grade AR for AEC

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

A NEW VIEW OF DIGITAL TWINS

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.

Industry Case Study


Why vGIS AR?

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.

Composite view of job site with and without BIM overlays helps validate percent completion. Issue reporting and live video chat capabilities improves collaboration and simplifies information flow between teams.

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.

A few of many reasons to deploy vGIS

  • A user-friendly UI and an easy adoption process
  • Automated data conversion
  • Highly accurate visuals (accurate to within a centimeter)
  • Complete productivity workflows
  • Leading functionality depth
  • Collaboration and remote assistance tools
  • 85%

    faster understanding of surroundings

  • 80%

    faster review of potential clashes

  • 30-50%

    less time required for clash reviews

  • Up to 100%

    reduction in drawing-AR conversions
