Take Control of Your Data with 3D
3D visualization provides an efficient and intuitive way to manage and centralize even large sets of information. With the help of mobile technology and all the features on mobile devices, such as cameras, GPS and QR readers, you also have a powerful tool for enriching that data – in your pocket.
Our technology provides an easy-to-use way for professionals in the fields of facilities management, infrastructure, city planning and IoT to manage and take control of their data in a way that saves time and money and also improves quality and reliability.
Below are some examples of how 3D makes life easier in these fields.
Our technology can be used as a unified user interface that is connected to your company’s systems. You can, for example, activate a service request by clicking an object in the 3D view. Spatial visualization makes locating the serviceable object very easy.
The model can be also be enriched with other forms of data, such as photos and manuals. Photos can help maintenance personnel pinpoint the cause of the problem quicker. When you attach a manual to the corresponding object on the model, it will always be immediately available when needed.
The maintenance professional can also use the mobile 3D view to easily check if there is anything else nearby that needs taking care of. Not having to run back and forth between the PC can save several hours of time each week. The model can also be used to search and examine all objects of a certain type, such as fire extinguishers.
When assessing the integrity of a bridge, for example, mobile 3D technology is a convenient asset. A smartphone or other mobile device is easy to carry to remote locations and our technology works even without a data connection.
The mobile device itself can be used to take notes and pictures of the bridge and record GPS data, which can all then be added directly to the 3D model and onto the same place where it would be found on the real world equivalent.
Once the assesment is finished the report is ready to be sent forward. Compared to writing a report at a later date based on notes, this method minimizes the risk of data being lost or misinterpreted.
3D models are a great way to visualize zoning changes. When the changes are added to one official model, the information is always up to date. This reduces zoning costs and also saves time for architects who can have easy access to current information.
When new developments are proposed, the 3D model can be enriched with different architects’ proposals. Citizens can then easily switch between different views to get a better understanding of the proposals. They can even see things at street level. 3D models give citizens a clear channel through which to participate in city planning.
Internet of Things
If you have a large number of sensors that give you a constant stream of data, a 3D model is a great tool for visualizing it. You can import all that information into a model, display it and also control it with tools built using the API. Sensor data, such as humidity and temperature, can also be enriched with different colors.
An interactive 3D model gives you an intuitive way to manage thousands of sensors that have been distributed around a building, for example. Searching for data from a single sensor in a list is time consuming, and sometimes near impossible. 3D visualization and the right coloring makes the relevant or anomalous information pop out. Combine sensor data and 3D with analytics and you can really start enjoying the true value of IoT.
