Smarter Data for Construction and Handover: Easily Connecting Video and Photos
Autodesk University
Collapse Expand


Projects are generating ever-increasing amounts of photo and video documentation. From mobile phones to wearable cameras to drones, the number of devices that can generate visual information is skyrocketing. Unfortunately, storing and organizing this content is not a simple task, nor is linking it to the actual assets. The files are numerous, large, and often do not have the required information associated to help categorize them. This case study of a live project will present a new approach that complements the visual organization capabilities of Revit software (and beyond) with a new product——to help store, organize, and tag the video and photo content captured on-site. We will discuss the concept of video-based reality capture within the context of construction, handover, and operations deliverables. This session features Revit, BIM 360 Field, and Building Ops.
