MGISS and vGIS Take a Geospatial View of Augmented Reality

The development of Augmented Reality as a tool to manage and visualise hidden infrastructure assets has taken a major step forward following the announcement of a partnership between two technology companies. MGISS, a UK geospatial specialist, has partnered with Canada based vGIS to transform traditional GIS, BIM and CAD data into stunning Augmented Reality visualisations.

Augmented Reality provides an interactive experience of an environment where objects that reside in the real world, such as underground pipes, are displayed and enhanced with additional intelligence such as attribute information and maintenance records.

 

A specialist in the use of geospatial technology in the utility, infrastructure and environment sectors, MGISS understands the demands for improved spatial data quality and the requirement to communicate complex, asset dense, 3D environments in an easy to consume way. By combining authoritative survey grade positions and associated data with consumer grade hardware MGISS enables users of vGIS to access Augmented Reality visualisations from any suitable smart device. 

 

vGIS is the leading augmented and mixed reality visualisation technology for GIS data. Using the vGIS system, field personnel can see an augmented view that includes holographic infrastructure objects, improving environmental assessments and increasing situational awareness.

 

“Initiatives such as digital twinning and the expectation of ‘Business As Usual’ (BAU) operations require the capture and representation of increasing complex real-world environments. Asset owners and operators face a number of challenges and opportunities including the need to improve safety, reduce risk and ensure what lies beneath our feet meets future infrastructure needs,” commented Mike Darracott Managing Director and founder of MGISS.

 

“vGIS truly understand the needs and the challenges facing these sectors. In fact, vGIS goes further than any other Augmented Reality solution by providing a full range of 3D spatial data capabilities; all within a platform that works with existing enterprise systems and data structures,” added Darracott.

 

“Value is often hidden deep within the structure of data. By helping people “see” data in more intuitive ways, they gain new insights and can subsequently do more with that information. That’s been the core operating philosophy of vGIS,” commented Alec Pestov, founder and CEO of Canada based vGIS. “To achieve this we are building an ecosystem bringing together top experts to work jointly towards a common goal. MGISS possesses deep expertise in the spatial services and solutions sector and we are looking forward to joining forces to deliver augmented and mixed reality visualisations in the UK.”
