The new Clirio app builds on their acclaimed Ada visualization software to add the features clients need to capture, organize, and share field observations in real-time 3D.
VANCOUVER, BC / April 25, 2022 – Clirio, Inc. today announces a revolutionary software solution for field data capture that builds on the company’s previous success in geospatial data visualization. The new application, branded simply as ‘Clirio’, uniquely combines mobile LiDAR 3D scanning with smart remote collaboration tools to offer teams an end-to-end 3D solution to capture, organize, share, and problem-solve. This is all based on real-time field observations and data, whether team members are on site or a continent away.
Clirio is a set of mobile, web, and VR/AR apps for instantly capturing, sharing, reviewing, and resolving worksite field observations, issues, or updates. 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 geo-referenced within the map-based workspace and synced to a secure cloud workspace. An intuitive interface allows colleagues, managers, partners, or stakeholders to sort, review, compare, and action 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 live, remote, virtual holographic meeting around one or more field observations from within the app. Clirio accurately documents a “digital twin” of observations as the worksite evolves over time, letting users revisit the site’s current or historical points of interest 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 the 3D data, either in the same physical space, or remotely from anywhere in the world.
“We have had such excellent enthusiasm and input from our customers using our existing software to create holographic visualizations of their spatial data. Building from that, we are excited to launch a whole new suite of tools to help our customers succeed with their field data capture, organization and sharing challenges,” says Clirio CEO Ron Klopfer. “Having worked with diverse clients across mining, infrastructure, oil and gas, construction and government has given us the insight and confidence to bring this new app to market.”
“There’s a lot of information that comes at us all the time from the field. Keeping track of it, having the right people look at it, not losing it, getting it in the right place so we can use it later, are all challenges we deal with daily. The ability for anyone to create hand-held 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 is keeping our teams connected.” says Bill Burton, Principal Geological Engineer, BGC Engineering Inc.
