Virtual information models - Roads

  1. 1.
  2. 2. VIM = Virtual Interactive Models<br />Processes are facilitated through a interactive 3D visual workflow everyday. <br />Information and data is transformed into a responsive, intuitive format. <br />It takes 80% less time to understand and comprehend a scenario.<br />This power interfaces across users, stakeholders and professions.<br />
