The most radical innovation of the past years in engineering is 'virtual design'. Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a digital exchange of information during the whole construction cycle of design, realisation and maintenance. A digital (3D) model, built from up-to-date Cycloramas is a development that works well within the BIM method.
CycloMedia's imagery provides significant visual support in BIM. On-site situations can be assessed online, and detailed measurements of x,y,z can also be carried out online. With BIM, it's also very important that all parties use uniform footage. By plotting a modelled building in a 3D environment, it becomes clear what the design will look like in the existing environment. This way the proposed project is visualised in the context of the existing environment for all the parties involved (client, council, county and the general public).
