Join in to learn about how you can use existing visual data from images and videos to point clouds to enable proactive field reporting and project controls on construction sites.

This webinar will present two specific systems and workflows:

(a) marker-less and infrastructure independent field reporting: i.e., leverage simple digital images taken using commodity smartphones or tablets to identify location and orientation of the user in 3D, provide access to BIM and project information, and enable real-time field reporting;

(b) proactive project controls - Use images and videos from drones to smartphones to automatically generate 3D reality models over project timeline, integrate with production-level 4D BIM, track progress and productivity, and identify and tap off risk of potential delays.

You will learn how “On-demand” and “mobile” access to project information can have a significant impact on improving decision-making during on-site construction activities.

Main takeaways from this meeting include:

• Hear about of the true growth of visual data information
• Visual data helps with feedback to project plans and how it helps demonstrate actual performance on jobsites
• Pain points that can be addressed with visual data
• How visual data can localize users to offer real-time field reporting
• How drone images offer mapping and progress tracking capabilities
