vGIS Exploration introduction

Augmented reality is transforming infrastructure locate services. Brief video showcasing a few features of the vGIS Utilities. vGIS Utilities is designed specifically with utilities, municipalities and GIS service providers in mind. The system connects to Esri ArcGIS to seamlessly convert traditional 2D GIS data into powerful, accurate and stable 3D visuals. Designed specifically for Oil and Gas companies, vGIS Exploration works in conjunction with your existing Esri ArcGIS back-end to display wellbores, frac stages, microseismic events, rock formations, production, etc. in near real-time.
