GeoInstinct’s solution capitalises on the advantages these immersive experiences present, where we have enabled model and design based modifications to be undertaken in real-time as part of the immersive review.
This is key to optimising project model workflows, eliminating double handling of digital data and takes decision making and design revisions to the next level.
Through the use of our Virtual Reality technology in particular, we are able to offer our clients the opportunity to immerse themselves in a life-like digital twin model, which can be utilised throughout the design and build process.
Virtual Reality (VR)
Virtual Reality (VR) is the term used to describe a three-dimensional, computer generated environment which can be explored and interacted with by a person. That person becomes part of this virtual world or becomes immersed within this environment and is able to manipulate objects or perform a series of actions.
Augmented Reality (AR)
Augmented Reality (AR) is a live, direct view of a physical, real-world environment that is augmented by computer generated sensory input, such as sound, video or graphics. AR is more of an overlay of data on the real world that isn’t anchored to or part of it. The real world content and the computer generated content cannot respond to each other.
Mixed Reality (MR)
Mixed Reality (MR) is the merging of real and virtual worlds to produce new environments and visualisations where physical and digital objects co-exist and interact in real time. Think of MR as an overlay of synthetic content on the real world that is anchored to and interacts with the physical data of our environment.
Using our specialist software, we seamlessly integrate BIM models into virtual reality experiences, allowing clients to get a real glimpse of how their assets will look and understand the scale and design validity, something that is impossible to achieve on a traditional monitor.
Information from these models can then be brought into Augmented Reality, allowing contractors on site quick access to important model information. Augmented Reality also provides a collaborative approach within the office for more open design reviews, allowing engineers to look at the same holographic model and collaborate.
