Great apps are already available

There are plenty of great HoloLens-based tools are available already so you can begin improving or future-proofing your operations today. And the same apps will work even better on HoloLens 2 when it comes out. Here are a few apps to consider.

vGIS Utilities transforms traditional “flat” GIS data into augmented reality displays and holograms overlain on your view of a physical job site. It lets you “see” your underground utility infrastructure as you tour a work area.

RemoteSpark by Kognitiv Spark is a cutting edge worker support communications platform with interactive 3D content, artificial intelligence, and live IoT data that brings expert support to front line workers, without travel and equipment downtime.

vGIS Exploration projects mining and exploration data as accurate 3D holograms. Geological information is combined with mine schematics, real-time wellbore information,  extraction progress and microseismic to produce comprehensive holographic visuals. The geological and production data is sourced in real-time from your existing back-end system, thus eliminating the need for manual data manipulations.
