CAD and GIS Firms offer Indoor Digital Twins

Esri UK and Tetra Tech are combining their CAD and GIS technologies in response to the increasing demand for indoor mapping for facilities management and indoor navigation at large offices, campuses and hospitals.

From an article in Smart Cities World.

Geographic information system (GIS) software, location intelligence and mapping specialist, Esri UK, is partnering with engineering and consulting firm, Tetra Tech, to offer customers an indoor mapping and digital twin solution to create smarter buildings.

The companies are responding to increasing demand for indoor mapping for facilities management and indoor navigation at large offices, campuses, or hospitals.

The firms will work on joint projects within the facilities management, architecture, engineering and construction (AEC), transport, defence and healthcare industries. One of their key focus areas will be helping organisations return to work as Covid-19 restrictions lift.

Combined technologies

Tetra Tech will provide the necessary 3D terrestrial laser scanning, data analytics and CAD to GIS expertise, while Esri UK will offer its GIS system with indoor mapping capabilities, including interactive floorplans, indoor positioning for wayfinding plus real-time people and asset tracking.

This will provide users with digital twin floorplans, helping to improve operational efficiency by giving staff a clear picture of where things are and how to reach them, for improved building performance and asset management.

Esri UK reports its indoor mapping customers include the University of Oxford and large energy providers, while Tetra Tech works with major energy, government and defence customers.
