Powerful and leading-edge technology to quickly communicate interior progress
EarthCam's Control Center Version 8.3 delivers an improved photography interface and mobile app for 360° virtual reality (VR) jobsite tours. EarthCam has taken 6 processes and reduced them to one simple step with its new Site Map Cam app. Use the app to capture still progress images, as well as interactive 360° spherical photos. Instantly view, analyze and share the photos online via the Control Center 8 Software as a Service (SaaS) dashboard.
EarthCam's Site Map Cam photography app harnesses the power of 360° spherical technology to create interactive virtual reality photographs. Wirelessly connect your phone to popular VR cameras to efficiently document interior progress, where one 360° photo viewing all four walls, floor and ceiling provides as much information as 8 separate photos.
First, upload your site plans or technical drawings – you can add new or revised drawings at any time. Second, use the integrated map to align the plans and establish the geo-coordinates of your location. Integrate photos captured via the app directly into your site plans for an interactive visual record of your jobsite. You can also depend on EarthCam's network of on-site photographers to capture important milestones during your project.
Shoot critical arenas of your jobsite, capturing important visual evidence of pre-existing and as-built conditions. With the mobile app, project teams can photograph interior jobsite progress and make note of potential issues at their convenience.
Using EarthCam's geo-tagging mapping technology, photos captured via the app are automatically organized by location within architectural site plans. Additionally, you can drag and drop existing images within your Control Center 8 online dashboard to your site plan markers for a complete visual history of interior progress.
With the 360° progress photos, users have the ability to inspect each room and remotely explore the jobsite via the click of a mouse or the tap of an Oculus headset. This detailed visual record acts as a virtual x-ray of the jobsite, creating an indisputable record of as-built and pre-existing conditions. With user-friendly editing tools, it's simple to mark-up any of your photos to call-out a specific area of interest.
All markers and jobsite photos are uploaded from the app to EarthCam's Control Center 8 software for effective project management. Markers and photos can be managed in more detail using the tools provided in the online dashboard.
Add notes, tags and flags to your uploaded images for efficient search and filtering purposes. Assign tags to each image, such as mechanical, plumbing or structural. You can also highlight certain images by assigning a colored flag (red, amber or green) to indicate an urgent issue or mark an important milestone. Search, filter and view only images marked with those specific tags and create a virtual punch list for quick analysis and progress reports.
Images can be marked and overlayed as a virtual x-ray, comparing different stages in construction. With this unique tool, project teams can take a look behind the walls to ensure that all work is being performed properly. Taking this proactive measure will ensure that building owners and operators have an accurate and reliable as-built photo record for an ongoing maintenance reference.
Document jobsite progress and update the image gallery using your previously captured jobsite photos for easy organization. The photo overlay feature allows the user to properly line up and capture the next jobsite image. Once uploaded, the software will automatically attach the new image to the same marker on your floor plan for future image comparison.
Save, email and share photos in real time with team members. With easy-to-use markup tools, highlight specific areas of the jobsite and add text to share observations on captured images. Provide architects, engineers, project developers and contractors with all the necessary visual information to make quick decisions. Share "beauty shots" of your project as a marketing tool on social media.
Every EarthCam client receives a comprehensive End of Project digital file once their job is complete. The report includes all of the floor plans, marker data, images, image notes, image tags and historical weather data collected throughout the duration of your project. Access the information to navigate through the entire jobsite, export images at full resolution and quickly find specific details.
Download the professional construction photo documentation app specifically designed to help project teams photograph and organize jobsite images from anywhere. Use your iPhone, iPad or GPS-enabled camera to take as many photos as you like, transcribe notes and geotag the images. It's the simplest way to communicate progress from your jobsite.
