New reality capture tools and technologies are being introduced to the market at an exponential rate. When used appropriately, these tools and technologies can inform design in many meaningful ways. Expensive equipment, large file sizes, powerful enough computers, skillsets in different software and workflows, and the ability to use the data for meaningful deliverables to inform design are all adoption challenges

This program will explore the data collection, data analysis, and data delivery process of reality capture. We will investigate helpful ways to use the data collected through reality capture to inform design. We will explore how to identify challenges early in the planning process for better project outcomes. We will explore the different reality capture tools and technologies available to enable informed data driven decision making from reality capture data. 

This event is intended for those who want to know more about how reality capture is affecting the design and built process. From those at the beginning of their careers, to firm principals/executives, this event is meant to be a detailed exploration into how reality capture data can be analyzed in meaningful ways to inform design.
