VISUAL PLAN FEATURES

All of your visual data. One hub.

Spatially accurate 3D Digital Twins using 2D, 3D, BIM, 360° photos & videos for digital asset management.

Discover Visual Plan Software & Features.

Visual Plan is a facility management and collaboration software platform that compiles all things CAD and all things 3D. Our 360° photogrammetry engine governs change in sync next to BIM/Point Clouds and CAD to provide a collaborative baseline of truth for entire teams and organizations. More than this, Visual Plan offers a live digital asset management Hub at your fingertips.

Features & Benefits

Effectively And Easily Scalable

Provides an EASI method using any 360 capable camera and a smart device to produce one digital twin or many.

Hardware Agnostic

Visual Plan allows you to use your own devices, so there are no major hardware expenses involved.

Capture

Create a virtual 360° walkthrough of your facility and compile every view of your physical space into a singular composite.

Integrate All Visual File Types

Compile all 2D, 3D and Lidar data, importing existing and new data into our cloud based platform.

Secure Cloud Storage

Visual Plan is based on AWS cloud servers which allows all data to be shared collaboratively with many stakeholders safely via built in roles and permissions.

FAQs

360 degree photos are common among recreational enthusiasts but can be extremely helpful in gaining a deeper understanding of what is happening in your environment.  These special photos require a spherical camera creating a photo where you can view your environment as if you were standing in a room being able to see above, below and 360 degrees around.  

By using the Visual Plan platform, we import large amounts of 360 degree photos and stitch all these photos together to create an immersive environment.  When stitching, we can apply intelligent scaling data over the stitch photos having 360 degree photogrammetry in our platform.

Photogrammetry is widely used in today’s industrial and commercial sectors to visually understand environments more clearly and be able to track progress over time, see facilities when a site visit is not possible or measure data when we need to verify something quickly saving time and energy.

Yes, Visual Plan’s unique platform provides clients with the ability to ingest all data you already have available or may be using, we just organize this data in a format that makes it readily available and easy to access for effective and efficient digital asset management.  Once you have your data uploaded, if needed you can then conduct a capture of your environments to  visualize, plan, develop and communicate.  

A Digital Twin is an exact visual carbon copy or representation of a physical environment at a specific moment in time. Digital Twins incorporate a collection of photos, videos, 3D Lidar and other visual data to build your virtual environment.
