VIZualize your Construction Projects with SharePoint Spaces and Construction Viz
Microsoft began rolling out SharePoint Spaces for Microsoft 365 users last year. SharePoint Spaces is an immersive, web-based platform that allows you to create and share secure and extensible mixed reality experiences.
Users can build interactive mixed reality pages inside SharePoint sites to share 360-degree images and video, 3D objects, 2D images, text, document libraries, and more. You can even play ambient sounds in the background when visitors view the site.
The functionality works best when used with a virtual reality or mixed reality (VR/MR) headset to navigate the 3D space, but this is not required. Users without a headset can navigate the SharePoint Spaces on any device with a modern browser and interact with the artifacts using their keyboard and mouse.
You can find more information about getting started with SharePoint Spaces here.
Using SharePoint Spaces with Construction Viz
SharePoint Spaces' mixed reality features provide another way to navigate, share, and visualize project data. There are several benefits to using spaces for your construction organization beyond just a shared meeting room with project content. Below is a demo of how a construction project can benefit by integrating our Construction Viz apps with SharePoint Spaces. Examples integrations include:
- Geospatial location data via the GIS Mapping app
- Project progress using the Project Tracker app
- Project Gantt chart scheduling using the Scheduler app
- Document management using our Construction Form apps for submittals, transmittals, drawings, specs, and so on
Stay tuned as Spaces evolves, and we continue to integrate further and build VR/MR solutions for Construction Viz.
