High-Accuracy Augmented Reality for BIM and GIS


vGIS was designed to give users the best of both worlds: survey-grade accuracy and the ability to use the system on consumer-grade devices without any additional hardware. The system comes with multiple calibration methods that allow indoor and outdoor positioning with or without external hardware, meeting the needs of users ranging from field service workers to surveyors and engineers.

vGIS supports several positioning methods.

Survey-Grade and High-Accuracy Positioning

vGIS supports a wide range of GNSS and RTK receivers with native integrations. Native GNSS integrations enable access to NMEA metadata and survey-grade, 1 cm positioning. Combined with vGIS’s proprietary GNSS antenna configuration, the broad device support delivers not only the best survey-grade capabilities but also unmatched flexibility when selecting the optimal hardware for the job.
