The life cycle of a constructed facility can be hundreds of years, a lengthy period of time that contains different phases from planning to maintenance and finally decommissioning. The magnitude of information about the structure is almost unlimited, varying from design drawings and as-built survey data to maintenance procedures or inspection reports. There’s also a vast audience of stakeholders involved and the communication among them is crucial for efficient asset management.
Digital Asset Information Management
There are many ways to manage all that information. The challenge is that most of the time, the information resides on different platforms. The architect has the drawings and maybe they’re archived somewhere in paper form. The survey company has point clouds and in some drawer there’s a flash drive containing the point cloud, but no one has managed to open it. The decision makers have never seen the damages the chief engineer is trying to address with the repair budget.
Gisgro is an online 3D software that bundles 3D GIS visualizations and different procedures in asset life cycle management. It can be used as a databank, linking the 3D model of a structure in real coordinates with metadata such as inspection results, photographs, structural details or drawings. Take measurements for repair planning or make CAD drawings straight from the 3D data and send to the designer for extension planning. To demonstrate the state of the structure to stakeholders, you can easily show the visualized data in meetings via your web browser. Manage daily maintenance with work orders and access them in the field on a mobile device.
For successful asset management, information is the key to making good decisions. And because decision makers can’t be experts in every field, the information needs to be available, accurate and easy to digest.
Facilitate the best possible decisions by getting the most from an abundance of information.
