On-Site Magazine presents: Cameras in Construction
By Adam FreillConstruction Equipment Technology Software
Free industry webinar set to look at how cameras and imaging systems are digitizing modern construction sites.
Everyone has seen Spot the Robotic Dog, and while that technology is eye-catching, it’s just scratching the surface of how images can and are used on construction sites. From tapping drone technology to build accurate site maps, to the use of images to build 3-D models for VDC, to generating pin-point-accurate photo-realistic images of spaces under construction, to snapping pics on a smartphone for use in project reporting and tracking apps, we now live and work in a visual world.
Join On-Site Magazine and a panel of industry experts during this free webinar as we look at the cameras, drones, lasers and imaging-related technology and apps that are changing the face of Canada’s construction industry.
