EarthCam 4d brings construction digital twins to life

By GeoConnexion - 12th April 2022 - 13:11

EarthCam, a provider of webcam technology and services, introduced EarthCam 4D, empowering virtual design and construction (VDC) teams to overlay and synch live imagery with their digital twins. An intuitive time-line allows users to scroll backward and forward in time to view live imagery in relation to their 4D models. Built on the Bentley iTwin platform, EarthCam 4D augments Bentley Systems’ SYNCHRO 4D models with high-resolution photos from multiple cameras throughout the jobsite, overlaid in precise alignment. Viewers can zoom in and out, and the associated live images remain synched. Unique transparency/opacity and model colour adjustments enable new and powerful ways to compare and contrast models with reality over time.
