Come to the reality computing booth in the exhibit area to meet with the people behind some of the most advanced startups and businesses in the reality computing arena. Products include new analysis tools for reality data and new capture devices, and there will be representatives from new businesses that are maximizing on the Capture-Compute-Create workflow.
Dominique Pouliquen is marketing director for the Reality Solutions Group inside Information Modeling and Platform Products Group of Autodesk, Inc., in charge of promoting the ReCap software family of products and services. Dominique joined Autodesk through the acquisition of REALVIZ in May 2008, a company that he co-founded in March 1998 from a technology transfer with National Research Institute for Computer Sciences and Automatics (INRIA). He was CEO of this company for 10 years, developing its image-based, content-creation software business in the special effects and digital imaging markets throughout the world. Dominique has spent his career in the computer graphics industry since graduating in 1986 with an engineering degree from Ecole supérieure d'électronique de l'Ouest, Angers, France.
We will discuss ways in which Holder Construction has harnessed the power of laser scanning and related reality capture technology to supplement existing Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflows. Laser scanning has the potential to fundamentally change the way in which we plan and coordinate construction work and interact with our built environment. While the technology may be relatively new to our industry, there are many high-value opportunities to use laser scanning to enhance our workflows and provide better-quality products to our owners at the completion of our projects. Software discussion will include integrating laser scan data into AutoCAD software, ReCap software, Revit software, and Navisworks project review software.
We will explore the implementation of the scanning process of an entire Mexico City district and the impact that this process represents as a social-decision support tool. Urban planning has a special responsibility to represent societal needs. Using laser scanning technologies with a powerful 3D visualization tool like ReCap software, planners can generate and explain new ideas, and they can get more people involved in the planning phase. Information for urban planning must integrate all possible strategic information coming from different sources. In other words, the information must be accurate and updated and it should represent a high-fidelity 3D model of the city. In addition, when data is coming from different sources, the integration and management of this information plays a vital role for decision-making and urban planning at all levels of the society. In this lecture we will review the advances that laser scanning methods offer in urban planning for a more sustainable built environment.
