Visualisation solution uses geo-location instead of traditional folder structures to organise and visualise 2D plans and construction data
Bluebeam, best known for its AEC-focused PDF solutions, has acquired Project Atlas, a digital mapping engine that uses geo-location instead of traditional folder structures to organise and visualise 2D plans and construction data. This location-based orientation is designed to enable design and construction professionals to create and search a seamless digital map of their project that contains plans, people, material, site photos and drone imagery, all within highly detailed, zoomable layers.
“Project Atlas provides users an entirely new way to visually organise and unify location-based documents and data,” said Bluebeam CEO Jon Elliott. “This location-based methodology dramatically reduces the time it takes to find critical plans and information, empowering owners, architects, engineers, contractors and specialty contractors to access data in an immediately understandable way that will be especially beneficial in the field.”
“It’s this combination of visualisation, collaboration and project documentation that our industry needs to make those last-minute decisions in the field, which are often the most critical and expensive decisions in a project,” adds Project Atlas co-founder and Bluebeam VP of Business Development and Partnerships Todd Wynne. “By working collaboratively using a visual map of a project, customers can understand projects in a familiar context and break down the barriers that often keep information from getting to the people who need it most.”
