2015 Bright Idea

Visualization is a key component of designing, planning, and building large-scale construction projects, yet many of the current visualization tools and processes for stakeholders are expensive, time-consuming, and produce subjective experiences. To move from the manual staking process to a 3D augmented reality process, Project EyeSite was initiated to bring together the expertise of National Capital Planning Commission staff and GIS Professional Services staff from the Environmental Systems Research Institute (Esri). Using the power of Esri's ArcGIS and Metaio's 3D Augmented Reality Browser (Juniao), a fully 3D, GIS-enabled augmented reality prototype was configured.
