About NavVis GmbH

NavVis brings indoor mapping and positioning to the next level. Our trolley creates photorealistic 3D models of even the largest indoor spaces on the go. Explore them with our web-based IndoorViewer for virtual exhibitions, real estate presentations, construction monitoring, etc. Via these models, our patented indoor positioning engine lets the camera of your smartphone ''see'' where you are. Meter accurate and without any infrastructure.

The solution

Our M3 Indoor Mapping Trolley, equipped with 6 high-resolution cameras and 3 high-resolution, high-range laser scanners can map 2.000 - 5.000 square-meters of indoor spaces per hour. The captured data can then be viewed with the web-based NavVis IndoorViewer right in every browser. 360° HD panorama images allow a virtual tour through the mapped indoor environment, including 3D point-clouds, 2D floor plans and sensor data (magnetic field, WiFi signals) Points of interests with additional information (e.g. text, audio, video) can be integrated. Up for release in 2015 is the NavVis Navigation App. The NavVis "turn-by-turn" navigation app guides you through indoor spaces using camera-based positioning - no need to add any additional (expensive) infrastructure like Bluetooth or WiFi.
