Clirio Launches World’s First End-to-End Holographic Scanning and Review Apps for Field Inspections and Digital Matchmaking
The new Clirio app builds on their acclaimed Ada visualization software to add the functionality customers need to capture, organize and share real-time 3D field observations.
Vancouver, BC / April 25, 2022 – Clirio, Inc. today announces a breakthrough software solution for field data capture that builds on the company’s previous success in geospatial data visualization. The new app, dubbed simply “Clirio”, uniquely combines mobile LiDAR 3D scanning with smart remote collaboration tools to give teams an end-to-end 3D solution to capture, organize, share and troubleshoot. All of this is based on real-time field observations and data, whether team members are on site or on another continent.
Clirio is a set of mobile, web, and VR/AR apps to instantly capture, share, review, and resolve sightings, issues, or updates in the field. At a field site, Clirio users collect notes, photos and even 3D scans (using the laser scanner built into a new iPad Pro or iPhone Pro). These field observations are automatically georeferenced in the map workspace and synced to a secure cloud workspace. An intuitive interface allows colleagues, managers, partners or stakeholders to sort, review, compare and act on field observations. Base maps can be generated automatically, imported from users’ favorite GIS program, or constructed from site CAD or aerial imagery. Teams can collaborate as a group in a virtual, remote, live holographic meeting around one or more field observations from the app. Clirio accurately documents a “digital twin” of observations as the site progresses, allowing users to revisit current or historical points of interest on the site from anywhere at any time.
Clirio’s collaboration capabilities use augmented reality on iPhones and iPads or can power a true 3D holographic experience on Microsoft HoloLens devices, with Oculus Quest VR support to follow. Multiple users with mixed devices can join a virtual session around 3D data, either in the same physical space or remotely from anywhere in the world.
“We have had such enthusiasm and input from our customers who use our existing software to create holographic visualizations of their spatial data. From there, we’re excited to launch an all-new suite of tools to help our customers succeed in their challenges of capturing, organizing and sharing data in the field,” said Ron Klopfer, CEO of Clirio. “Having worked with a variety of clients in the mining, infrastructure, oil and gas, construction and government sectors has given us the insight and confidence to bring this new application to market.”
“There is a lot of information coming to us all the time from the field. Keeping track of it, having it consulted by the right people, not losing it, placing it in the right place so that it can be used later, are all challenges that we face on a daily basis. The ability for anyone to create portable laser scans is great, and being able to work with them as life-size 3D holograms is revolutionary. I love how Clirio’s remote collaboration keeps our teams connected. said Bill Burton, Principal Geological Engineer, BGC Engineering Inc.
