Press Release – 3D at Depth Inc., a global provider of advanced subsea LiDAR systems and solutions, has partnered with iQ3Connect Inc. (iQ3) to deliver a new data visualization tool to help clients build, maintain, map and monitor subsea assets, environments and resources.
The partnership leverages the unique features of 3D at Depth’s subsea LiDAR data and the power of iQ3’s innovative augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) platform to transform the value of offshore survey data. “Powered by iQ3’s” cloud-based software platform, customers can access 3D at Depth’s subsea LiDAR data through a secure, optimized web-based portal. The technology creates an immersive VR environment with true 1-to-1 3D scale models generated using repeatable, millimetric subsea LiDAR data inputs.
Using a laptop, desktop or smart device, geographically dispersed teams can collaborate within a single VR session and be present in the same scene. iQ3Connect’s underlying technology runs from a computer aided design (CAD) based platform allowing simulation of structures overlaid with subsea infrastructure. The ability to explore and experience 3D content as if you were actually onsite with a digital representation of physical assets or the surrounding environment creates a seamless workflow environment from reality capture to virtual immersion.
Subsea LiDAR 3D data can be viewed and discussed with minimal changes to current installed geographic information systems (GIS) or big data hosting platforms. From data acquisition through data visualization and analysis, challenges faced by subsea survey programs are attributed to connecting actionable data to the right resource at the right time. 3D at Depth’s Subsea LiDAR VR Platform “Powered by IQ3” lowers the barriers and allows multiple users and key decision makers to “see” the same data together for greater insight and better decisions.
Sounds like a powerful combination.
