New software integration improves construction site productivity, efficiencies and safety
PHOENIX, Ariz. – November 10, 2020, AerialSphere, the industry leader in delivering immersive aerial experiences, today announced its initial integration with BIM 360®, a construction management software part of the Autodesk Construction Cloud™ portfolio. This integration between AerialSphere’s XP360 and BIM 360 will enable companies to gain new perspectives of their pre, active, and post job sites with 360-degree aerial panoramas of the built environment, helping improve project productivity, efficiency and safety.
XP360 from AerialSphere provides a whole new perspective on location, structure and topography by combining 360-degree aerial panoramas and data overlays with pinpoint accuracy, resulting in a more informative and engaging aerial experience. With the XP360-BIM 360 integration, builders using both solutions can reference the aerial panorama view alongside their project management information to better understand job site risks, performance, efficiencies and workflows without having to switch between applications. Using a Partner Card directly in the BIM 360 Project Home dashboard, builders can more easily and comprehensively experience job sites virtually. Being able to pan, tilt, and zoom in XP360 gives customers the ability to gain new perspectives not available from vertical or oblique aerial imagery. Giving users all the benefits of XP360 from within BIM 360 empowers builders with a more informative building experience and helps them make decisions more quickly to drive construction productivity, efficiency and safety.
“Autodesk is the industry standard for construction management software, which is why we are excited to work on our technology integration with the BIM 360 platform.” Said Ryan Schaefer, AerialSphere’s Chief Revenue Officer. “We want to make it as easy as possible for customers to have a full perspective of their construction projects, and integrations like this allow AerialSphere to deliver informative experiences that answer questions. Coupled with AerialSphere’s On Demand service, BIM 360 users will be able to leverage geo-enabled panoramic imagery on specific dates pertinent to their project schedule.”
“With more construction managers and executives now working remotely, access to virtual jobsite information is more crucial than ever,” said James Cook, head of integrations at Autodesk Construction Solutions. “Integrating BIM 360’s construction management capabilities with AerialSphere’s unique and immersive experience will help teams analyze their projects with the context they need in order to make decisions – whether they’re working remotely or not.”
