Reality Capture Technology - Insite360

Immersive reality capture of your site at speed, delivering high quality images and survey-grade point clouds that can aid in your BIM workflow

Revolutionary Technology

Insite360, Powered by NavVis technology, gives you the power to view and manage virtual sites from any modern browser, giving your team access to assess and interact with your site whenever you need it. Through the utilisation of next-generation reality capture hardware, COGNICA can capture survey-grade point clouds that can be leveraged in BIM models and CAD drawings. Whether you are delivering a new project, managing Health & Safety or looking to enhance your Facilities Management, Insite360 can bring your project to life and offer significant efficiency increases when managing your estate.

Increased Visibility

With Insite360, managing projects and sites couldn’t be simpler. Immersive 360° images make up the primary method of virtually navigating the site, with floor nodes allowing for instant access to any scanned area. These images allow for a greater understanding of space and detail, increasing familiarisation and decreasing the likelihood of errors in communication when relaying messages related to site progress. Combined with the inherent ability to tag the virtual model and take measurements anywhere on the site, to an accuracy of 1cm, it reduces the need for unnecessary inspections in-person or using old site drawings. With all these features available on the web, it allows for easy sharing with team members, simplifying the site management process and keeping information in a centralised location.

Point Cloud of scanned building

BIM Ready

Insite360 outputs, but also accepts, survey-grade point clouds ready for utilisation in BIM projects. From drone scans to terrestrial laser scanners, point clouds can be uploaded and hosted on the Insite360 platform, allowing for the same measurement and asset tagging tools to be used on a wide variety of data from different sources. These point clouds can also be aligned with existing data taken by COGNICA, allowing for scans to be built up over time via a variety of methods that are all compatible with local or global coordinate systems. Point clouds data can also be exported via the cropping feature, allowing a user to determine key areas for development of any site, downloading portions as needed for modelling purposes, whilst leaving the full model untouched on the web.

Point Cloud used for survey grade accuracy

Scan to BIM

Offering survey-grade accuracy and a millimetre-dense RGB-coloured point cloud that can be imported into most BIM programmes, data can be exported out of Insite360 and implemented immediately into your BIM workflow.

360 Scan Walkthrough

Scan and Assess

View and inspect online-hosted versions of buildings or entire sites with 360° high quality panorama photos and 3D flythroughs, giving you the power to control site condition with instant comparisons to your own drawings.

Points of Interest using pins

Scan and Tag

With the ability to tag and place pins on any asset or key location, Insite360 provides users with the tools to highlight faults, provide additional information or provide a reference point to external sources (DMS, Asset Systems and more).

Scan image used for measurements

Scan, Measure, Plan

Inbuilt measuring tools in Insite360 provide users with the precision they need to plan refits, refurbishments or general site works with centimetre-accuracy. Save, share and annotate measurements to collaborate with key team members and increase visibility on the project.

Scan of project used on an Online FM system

Scan to FM

Following a scan of your building, link via POIs to an online FM system to provide visual references and additional information that aids with planning and maintenance of future works. With a visually distinguishable scan of the assets and site layout, more stakeholders can engage with greater ease to minimise potential errors caused by miscommunication and maximise efficiency of projects.

Captured scanned image incorporated with information on Point of Interest

Scan for Show

As an immersive reality-capture offering, Insite360 provides the ability to repurpose scans for multiple audiences, including demoing sites (or limited areas of sites) to other audiences. With Insite360, you can offer unparalleled access to stakeholders, potential investors or the general public, with different levels of access for each.

Scan for Accessibility

Providing access to facilities is important for all sites and sizes, especially public attractions that are looking to welcome as many visitors as is possible. Insite360 allows not only yourself as a site owner, but the general public also, to interrogate and inspect sites to find the easiest and most accessible paths for either themselves or on behalf of others, increasing familiarity and encouraging interaction with your attraction.

Working towards a Carbon Neutral approach to business

Scan to Save the Planet

As a part of the RSK Group, we are striving towards a Carbon Neutral approach to business, an approach we hope to share with as many customers as possible. Insite360 provides a route to reducing the Carbon Footprint of any business that requires staff or customers to visit a site for visual inspections or assessments - following one scan, members of several teams can access and interact with the virtual model to assess condition and plan changes, tagging the site with POIs to reflect changing updates. If additional scanning is required, Insite360 allows for a modular approach to scan data input, updating only the areas that have been changed.

The COGNICA project team went the extra mile to work through consultant's comments and support BAM through to the completion of the project.
