vGIS AR transforms traditional BIM and CAD designs and GIS data into real-time augmented reality displays that are overlaid on your view of a physical job site with centimeter-level accuracy.

Use a device already in your pocket—like an Android phone, an iPhone, a tablet, or the Microsoft HoloLens—to observe utility infrastructure as a natural extension of the real world.

Save time and avoid costly mistakes and delays thanks to instant and comprehensive awareness of your surroundings and built-in productivity tools.

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

Industry Case Study

Why vGIS augmented reality?

vGIS integrates with Autodesk Build (BIM 360), Bentley iTwin, and Esri ArcGIS, and it accepts other BIM and GIS formats to create accurate augmented reality (AR) views of surrounding infrastructure.

vGIS aggregates and harmonizes geospatial data from available sources to reduce or eliminate the manual effort that would otherwise be required to prepare digital-twin data. vGIS does it for you automatically.

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

A few of the many reasons to deploy vGIS:

  • Visuals with centimeter-level accuracy
  • User-friendly UI and easy adoption
  • Automated data conversion
  • Complete productivity workflows
  • Collaboration and remote assistance tools
  • Leading functionality depth

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.
