The Ada Platform

A functional software platform that enables everyone to understand applied earth science as 3D holographic models.

Applied earth scientists study and solve issues in a 3D world. Yet our industry has been constrained to communicate concepts using 2D images and drawings. This makes it difficult to communicate the scale and scope of challenging projects, as well as the complex geological conditions that must be addressed to achieve project success.

As a solution, BGC developed Ada. The Ada Platform was acquired in June 2020 by Clirio, a new software company entirely focused on 3D holographic visualization.

Multiple stakeholders can collaborate on 3D holographic models in-person or remotely.

3D Time and Space

Holographic projections allow a natural way for users to interact with 3D data and its changes over time. Ada can show survey data, CAD designs, and numerical simulations with industry-leading clarity and at high resolution.

Walk the Landscape

Improve expert and non-expert stakeholders understanding of distant locations and future outcomes by immersing them in a virtual tour of the site. Data can be intermixed models of geographical forces for clearer understanding and better-informed feedback.

Subsurface Visualisation

Give stakeholders a better understanding of underground geology and how it influences landscape, groundwater, engineered structures and other features and conditions. Inaccessible, invisible features are made real through holographic visualization.
