An enterprise facility management system is only as good as the data it contains. There are a number of different building data models - CAD, BIM, IWMS, CAFM, EAM, and ERP - all very valuable systems, but more useful if they are seamlessly integrated and displayed on a map. Enter Facilities GIS.
InVision Data℠ is a solution that provides data collection, conversion, and integration into an enterprise GIS for a holistic view of facility information across a building, campus, or portfolio level. This solution provides the most intuitive, complete and accurate representation of building information available.
InVision Toolkit℠: CAD <-> GIS
When you are using an enterprise GIS solution such as InVision FM℠ or InVision Secure℠, InVision Toolkit℠ CAD <-> GIS can convert data into that GIS quickly and easily. Built on top of Safe Software’s FME template, InVision Toolkit℠ CAD <-> GIS features automated conversion of AIA standard CAD drawings and IFC standard BIM files to the ArcGIS Facilities information model.
This automated tool allows us to process whole sets of CAD or BIM files at a time while reducing time and complexity in the data conversion process. The data can then be integrated into InVision FM℠ or InVision Secure℠, or a host of other enterprise GIS solutions.
InVision OnePass℠ includes a measurement service and a building floor plan deliverable that utilizes a revolutionary robotic survey solution. This solution can produce building footprint data sets with space attribution in dramatically less time than conventional methods, for lower cost and with greater accuracy than previously possible.
InVision OnePass TS℠
This rapid building survey delivers accurate floor plans and 360 degree imagery and video immediately and without any manual post-processing. Use InVision FM℠ or InVision Secure℠, our products for viewing critical infrastructure data, or plug this rich data into your existing EOC applications for instant situational awareness drilldown.
This technology was developed for specialized surveys of critical infrastructure across all sectors, including DoD and TS facilities.
Facility Data Modeling
PenBay has unique expertise in facility data modeling. Working with Esri, we have helped develop industry standard information models (BISDM and Local Government) to address the complete campus built environment, setting the data foundation for utilizing GIS as a complementary technology for facilities management.
PenBay works directly with clients to develop database designs and data models that address unique facility-related business challenges, and to implement thoughtful and effective data infrastructures on which to build enterprise Facilities GIS applications.
