BIM and GIS Data In Augmented Reality

vGIS displays proposed designs and existing infrastructure in the field and in real time, helping field workers locate assets faster, detect problems, and improve collaboration.

An AR solution with centimeter-level accuracy from vGIS transforms traditional BIM engineering designs and flat GIS data into real-time augmented reality displays and holograms overlaid on your view of a physical job site.

Use a device already in your pocket like an Android phone, iPhone, or a tablet—or even the futuristic Microsoft HoloLens—to observe your designs and underground utility infrastructure as you tour a work area. Buildings, water and sewage systems, gas and electrical lines, and other structures appear in your field of view as a natural extension of the real world.

vGIS creates instant and comprehensive awareness of your surroundings, saving you time and helping you avoid costly mistakes and delays.

Explore the case study below to learn about the real-life benefits of vGIS.

Industry Case Study

Why vGIS augmented reality?

vGIS natively integrates with Autodesk BIM360, Bentley iTwin, Esri ArcGIS, and other BIM and GIS formats to create accurate augmented reality (AR) views of surrounding infrastructure on the project site.

Being able to see the current and proposed infrastructure as 3D objects gives you a greater understanding of your surroundings, increases productivity, reduces errors, and provides a safer work environment.

A few of many reasons to deploy vGIS:

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

vGIS AR Users

Companies from many industries and the government—AEC, utilities, service providers, federal agencies—use vGIS to help their engineers, field supervisors, project managers, and field workers to gain clarity and direction in their work.

Organizations use vGIS on job sites to detect design errors, avoid design clashes, and facilitate collaboration among project team members. Contractors use vGIS to reduce delays and speed up work. Municipalities and utility companies use vGIS to find and repair infrastructure, avoid accidental line cuts during excavations, and fill gaps in GIS documentation.
