2-Dimensional vs Augmented Reality: What's Next for the Digital Map

2-Dimensional vs Augmented Reality: What's Next for the Digital Map

Augmented Reality (AR) is a technology that superimposes a computer-generated image on a user's view of the real world, thus providing a composite view.  The composite view of AR brings that necessary connection between maps and the real world. It is the missing link to a seamless user experience. Users can make better decisions faster because they can immediately interpret their data in context with the world it is intended to represent. 

Argis Road Trip: Risk Mitigation

The Argis Road Trip is continuing on to San Diego. See how the trip went and learn something about how #AR can effect risk mitigation.

On our way through Moab, Utah, we took a hike to show you how augmented reality helps mitigate risk. Sounds exciting, I know. But the truth is: what we’re about to show you revolutionizes the way you and your teams will harness GIS data. 
Dusty dirt paths to the naked eye become rich veins of information through the Argis Lens. 
But simply being able to view these assets wouldn’t be revolutionary, would it? So what we’ve done is allow you to interact with them.  
The Attribute Window makes crucial information regarding any asset readily available at the touch of a screen. In Moab, for instance, we could view the lengths of the trails or the last time they were maintained.  The Argis Lens brings all the rich information that surrounds us right to your fingertips.

Argis Road Trip: First Stop

On our way out of town, we stopped by Colorado’s world-famous Red Rocks Ampitheatre, to show you how, together, the Argis® Framework and Lens bring GIS data into the real-world.
Using data gathered through Esri’s ArcGIS Online, we rendered Red Rock’s assets into the Argis Lens, transforming invisible information into visible resources.  Resources such as the electrical lines used to power the ampitheatre’s unforgettable performances. All this incredible information can be viewed from any perspective in the field, live or cached, with our without Wi-Fi.

Side-by-side, it’s easy to see why a three-dimensional perspective of your data is simpler and far more intuitive for anyone to use than a two-dimensional map.
Augmented reality may seem like something of the future, but here’s now, and it works.

AWE Video: Locating Underground Assets at Remote Sites

Excerpt from Augmented World Expo 2017 

Brady Hustad recently spoke about Locating Underground Assets at Remote Sites  at the Augmented World Expo (AWE). This talk focused on our impact on Whiting Petroleum's workflow in the field with their One Call Department. Check out the talk below or on our YouTube channel: 

The AWE was a new conference for Argis Solutions, but full of great potential for the future development of augmented and virtual reality.  Since our products are in the field now,  Brady answered many interesting questions at the end of his talk that delved into the questions of commercial adoption and application of Augmented Reality in industry marketplace.
