The HELIX Platform

Virtual Tour / Photographic Documentation

HELIX Twin includes comprehensive photographic documentation built on 360º photos and augmented with detailed 2D photo "annotation" of critical details. 100s of photos are typically required to capture all of the important details of a commercial, industrial or residential building.

The HELIX platform includes tools to collect, process and present building photos including:

  • Automated "photographer removal"
  • Automated person identification and face blurring
  • Sophisticated, irreversible obscuring of private information captured in the photo process (family photos, names, white board contents)
  • Automated scene grouping allowing multiple photos to be placed at once
  • Scene "annotation" enabling the addition of close-up photos and notes to 360 photos
  • Scene and level linking to generate an intuitive "virtual tour" experience for non-technical users
Scan Conversion / Registration

HELIX simplifies registration and presentation of LiDAR point clouds in a variety of formats. 10s to 100s of individual scans can be combined "in the cloud" to create a single, large, "registered" point cloud. HELIX simplifies point cloud handling by providing tools to load, register and present point clouds including:

  • Multi-format point cloud upload and inline presentation
  • Point cloud registration "in the cloud" to harness cloud compute power to manipulate large files
  • Web accessible point cloud viewing and download
  • Point cloud slicing and extraction allowing smaller subsets to be created and downloaded/viewed
  • Automated point cloud "segmentation" to separate large data sets into semantically organized elements including floors, walls, ceilings, people, plants, furniture and more. Classified point subsets can be downloaded as separate data sets.
  • Point cloud registration professional services
