EarthCam Employs AI to Enrich Autodesk BIM 360 Integration

Changing the collaborative landscape in the construction workspace

Empowering Users with Jobsite Imagery and Environmental Data

EarthCam, the leader in webcam technology, and Autodesk, a leader in 3D design, engineering and entertainment software, form a potent combination by integrating high-quality construction cameras, 360° VR imagery, and environmental data into a common, smart platform.

Empowering Users with Jobsite Imagery and Environmental Data

BIM 360 users can now automatically align 360° reality capture photos to create a cohesive library of archives for image comparison with 3D BIM models. Once aligned using AI technology, users can markup the images to share detailed observations, or create a time-lapse to highlight progress.

Request-for-Information (RFIs) can now include images for upload to PlanGrid. These data-rich photos, including telemetry from a local weather station, can be easily shared with team members improving the project’s overall communication, reporting and analysis.

Autodesk users now have access to their EarthCam live jobsite cameras, time-lapse movies and EarthCam-infused BIM 360 models as part of its new Autodesk partner card. EarthCam is making its versatile and cross-platform content readily available to support a lean construction environment. Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) teams can leverage EarthCam cameras already on the jobsite to gain a greater insight into the project process using real-time media.

Image Comparison Against 3D/4D Models

EarthCam’s software features support for Bentley Synchro 4D models and Autodesk BIM 360, where users will benefit from the ability to view their EarthCam cameras in relation to BIM, Navisworks and Revit models. Perform live comparisons and execute measurement functions between webcams, 360° VR photography and 2D, 3D or 4D models.

Share Directly to Autodesk BIM 360 Hubs

EarthCam's customers now have multiple ways they can share webcam, 360° VR photography and video content directly to documents and Autodesk BIM 360 hubs for a media-enhanced view of any Autodesk BIM 360 project.

Webcam Imagery, 360° Reality Capture, and AI-Edited Time-Lapse Videos

With EarthCam's filters, image comparison and mark-up tools, users have numerous options to highlight changes and call out specific areas of interest directly on the photos. In addition, gigapixel panoramas and presentation-ready AI-edited time-lapse videos can be shared from the EarthCam interface instantly within the Autodesk platform.

Data-Rich Content for Critical Insight

Jobsite environmental data collected by EarthCam's data sensors can also be shared through the modal to the Autodesk platform for further intelligence reporting. Teams will benefit from this important information, influencing future decision-making for a more transparent project management process.

Visual Communication

The project team can make additional observations related to the photos directly within the Autodesk BIM 360 platform, creating one central interface for easy and efficient content management, organization and team collaboration.

EarthCam has implemented single sign-on(sso) for Autodesk. Users now have the ability to access and view their EarthCam construction camera content in BIM 360.
