Case description


Gasunie GOS is an app that expands technical drawings of a Gas Delivery Station to show more insight in the different parts.

We used Augmented Reality and 3D walkthroughs to visualise the entire building as well as several parts underground.

Approach


Gasunie approached us with their wish to have an app that could show extra and more visual information on technical drawings.

They provided us with laser scans and point cloud data with which we went to work.

Technical drawings for refference

01.Technical Drawing


The technical drawing of the GOS is a rather complex overview which would most likely confuse people who are not actively working with them.

02.AR Viewer


With the use of point cloud data and laser scanned environment we remodelled the entire station as well as parts underground.

Using Augmented Reality, the technical drawing could be used as a marker, on which the created 3D models would appear.

Moving closer to the drawing would reveil the underground parts as well.

02.3D Walkthrough


To move even closer, we also implemented a 3D walkthrough in the app, allowing the user to virtually walk in and around the GOS.

By tapping around, the user can find additional information and details.

All these parts were combined into a crossplatform app, with responsive menus and extra features like timelapse videos.

The walkthrough was build in such a way that it could be easily converted to a true Virtual Reality experience using the Oculus Rift.
