New feature allows project managers to easily monitor progress during construction
Indoor Reality has added a time lapse mode to its 3D mobile mapping solution, which allows users to see how interior spaces under their control have changed over time.
“Now, superintendents and project managers can see and monitor progress during construction by clicking the Time Travel button in Indoor Reality’s 3D web-viewer,” said founder and CEO, Avideh Zakhor.
According to Indoor Reality, existing approaches prior to this involved making sure pictures and 3D information were captured from the same vantage point during successive acquisitions. This is extremely time consuming and certainly prone to error.
“With the new time lapse capability, multiple captured data sets of the same space can be painlessly aligned to allow the user to easily discern changes over time,” Zakhor said, “among other benefits, this enables a more quantitative payment method for subcontractors and owners alike. Another important use case we’ve identified, is for insurance companies who might have a vested interest in visualising a space before and after a loss such as fire, flood, theft, or other disasters.”
Accessible within the Indoor Reality Web-viewer, the Time Travel function is available now to all customers currently working under an active PROJECT – Manager Data Service plan and/ or PROJECT – Visualization subscription.
