Photos are great. Until they aren't.
In this increasingly digital world, everyone involved in a project relies on imagery. Unfortunately, most imagery is biased in aspect and/or discipline. If you ask people from different disciplines to take pictures of what they think is important, you will end up with very different sets of photos. How many times have you looked through a photo database, server-based or map based, to find that no one has captured what you are looking for? To capture the image needed you end up having someone in the field (or you) take a snapshot to communicate a specific issue, which is reactionary.
Imagine having high-resolution imagery of the entire project that doesn’t have a bias. Sure, aerial and drone footage can fill in some gaps, but nothing replaces a “boots on the ground” view. VRM Group’s 360 imagery provides that view. It can be used by all team members, regardless of discipline. If you need to look at something from a different angle, just scroll forward or back in the video. Need to look up/down/left/right? Just drag your mouse. There are going to be instances where you need a different view than the video can provide, but VRM Group’s 360 video will greatly decrease those issues.
We have the tools

Who We Serve
360 video of existing conditions can be used for design. Subsequent 360 video can provide an as-built baseline, which can be used for environmental compliance and monitoring.
Conducting 360 video walkthroughs at regular intervals provide asset managers with a way to QA/QC asset tabulations.
Power & Energy Infrastructure
VRM Group has worked closely with utilities to provide as-built documentation for virtual asset management while adhering to the cyber- security requirements.
Road & Transportation Design
VRM Group can provide georeferenced ground level documentation of existing road conditions and post-construction as-builts.
Georeferenced ground level 360 video provides a "boots on the ground" virtual tour of any project.
Safety & Evacuation Plan Training
360 video walk through of schools restricted facilities, government, or corporate buildings can provide an invaluable training tool for emergency services.
Field Example Videos
Move your mouse around the video to get a 360 degree viewpoint.
A large utility provider was already in the design approval process for a facility. The initial design was centered around utilizing an existing utility panel. During a scoping meeting, the project manager brought up VRM Group's 360 video of the location which showed that the panel had been removed. If the design had proceeded based on the existing as-builts, it would have resulted in inaccurate bids, change orders, redesign, and a delay in the in-service timeline.
