vGIS Platform


vGIS is a visualization platform that transforms traditional BIM, CAD, GIS and other types of data into stunning augmented reality visuals. vGIS aggregates data from multiple sources, including Autodesk models, Bentley BIM designs and Esri ArcGIS, to display it in a unified augmented reality view.

vGIS is hardware-agnostic. It can run on any suitable device, including Android and iOS phones and tablets, Microsoft HoloLens and virtual reality goggles, which allows you to select the optimal tools for the job.

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.

Positioning Methods
Positioning Accuracy

GNSS/RTK

  • Horizontal: 1 cm + 1 ppm RMS
  • Vertical: 2 cm + 1 ppm RMS
  • Directional: +/-0.1°

GNSS-less

  • Horizontal: sub-10 cm
  • Vertical: N/A
  • Directional: +/-0.1°
Supported formats

vGIS is designed to aggregate data from multiple sources and formats. The system can display 3D models as accurate to-scale holograms and it can convert traditional 2D GIS data into BIM-quality 3D visuals.
