Part sixteen today of Augmented Reality companies disrupting the industry powered by the Metaverse Insider. Here’s a link to the first one for those of you who missed them all so far.
vGIS is the leading augmented reality visualization platform for BIM, GIS, 3D Scans, and Reality Capture. Using the vGIS system, field personnel can see an augmented view that includes holographic infrastructure objects, improving their environmental assessments and increasing their situational awareness.
From delivering real-time, in-field holographic visualizations of underground pipes, valves, cables and other utility objects to visualizing ground-penetrating radar scans, vGIS solutions are estimated to save 12–20 hours per person per month and prevent up to 50% of excavation-related accidents resulting from human error, among other benefits. vGIS helps construction and engineering design teams communicate and collaborate design changes more intuitively, preventing covert design errors that create cost overruns and delays in construction.
Founded in Toronto in 2016 by Alec Pestov, vGIS is an award-winning partner of Esri and Microsoft, and a recipient of the ESRI Partner Award (2019) and Partner of the Year Finalist 3 years running (2020, 2019, 2018) in the CityNext and Mixed Reality Development categories.
