Plexscape, developers of Plex-Earth, a popular full-fledged platform for AutoCAD that brings together the world’s largest aerial and satellite imagery providers under one roof, is once again participating in Autodesk University this year as a main sponsor.
Plexscape will officially launch Plex-Earth 5D, its latest most powerful version during Autodesk University, as it is the biggest event of the year for the architecture, engineering and construction industry. (AEC).
In today’s rapidly changing world, on-demand access to aerial / satellite imagery and terrain data from the early stages of design is becoming increasingly important in AEC.
Plex-Earth 5D gives engineers a bird’s-eye view of their jobsites with high-quality, recent, historical field images and data from top vendors like Airbus, Maxar, Nearmap, Hexagon, and Google directly into their AutoCAD designs .
Easy and fast access to this data gives AEC professionals the information necessary to make the right decisions and avoid critical errors, especially during the conceptual and preliminary stages of their projects, where the most important decisions are usually taken. With Plex-Earth 5D, engineers can even export and then view their designs in Google Earth.
Timeviews is one of the powerful features of the new version: thanks to the vast historical databases of Maxar and Airbus, companies of all sizes can follow the progress of their projects and those of the competition, detect the risks of natural disasters or measure the exact impact of natural disasters on their area. of interest.
âThe increasing frequency of natural disasters such as hurricanes, floods, tornadoes, blizzards and forest fires, many of which are linked to climate change, pose new challenges for the AEC industry as a whole. Plex-Earth 5D is a powerful tool in the hands of engineers, providing them with a wealth of information for the assessment, analysis and monitoring of these extreme events through superior imagery and terrain without even leaving the field. office, âsaid Lambros Kaliakatsos, Founder and CEO of Plexscape.
Kaliakatsos was specially invited to participate in a fireside chat with the Autodesk Construction Cloud Core Team on October 6 from 12:00 p.m. to 12:45 p.m. PDT at the 2021 Autodesk University Conference.
