IMS-5. A different kind of camera.

iguide camera measurement

iGUIDE provides the property information people are looking for.

Access to property information benefits everyone. Faster decision making, better planning, and easier navigation are the results. iGUIDE includes floor plans, virtual tours, room dimensions, photos, and more to make this happen.

Professional photographers use the IMS-5 camera to capture data which is then processed by the iGUIDE Drafting Team to create iGUIDEs that are shared and experienced online. Explore the functionality of the iGUIDE below.

Property information provided by iGUIDE.

360°

360° images – Visually explore whatever you want from the perspective of someone standing in the property. Check out the dishwasher, the fireplace, or look at the ceiling. Get a more immersive visual experience than with still photos alone.

Floor Plan

Floor plans are a great way to represent a space in 2 dimensions and understand an entire property at a glance. They give context for each room relative to the whole and help with planning and decision making.

Dimensions

Floor and room dimensions – iGUIDE Camera’s time-of-flight laser scanner gives confidence in measurements. Feel assured that you can deliver reliable measurements and floor plans with a typical dimensional uncertainty of 0.5% or smaller.

square footage icon

Square Footage

Square footage/floor areas attach value to a property and are used in real estate listings, comparables analysis, and Automated Valuation Models. Every iGUIDE provides detailed and defensible square footage analysis and typical iGUIDE square footage uncertainty easily meets the requirements of various property measurement standards (such as 2% for BOMA and Alberta RMS).

photos icon

Photo

Photos are the most popular way to look at a property. They are quick to load, easy to share, and have universal appeal.

video integration icon

Video

Video Integration –  Share your videos using the iGUIDE. Video is just as prevalent as photos but adds a sense of movement that conveys what it would be like to move throughout the property. The connection between space can be more easily understood in this way. Aerial video can also give a perspective that’s impossible to achieve any other way.

Map

Neighborhood information is useful for finding schools, restaurants, libraries, and transit. The surrounding area is really important and can be more important than the property itself.

Reliable Measurement is Essential.

Floor plan dimensions and square footage accuracy depends on many factors, such as how large a floor plan is or the number of interior walls. You can feel confident in your choice to use iGUIDE because typical iGUIDE measurement uncertainty, in distance measurement on a floor plan, is 0.5% or better and the corresponding uncertainty in square footage is close to 1% or better. BOMA and Alberta RMS standards stipulate maximum square footage errors of 2% and iGUIDE easily meets these requirements.

In the space measurement marketplace you can sometimes see claims of 99% accuracy from other companies. This is more of an attempt to use marketing-speak and over-simplify the information. We know you’ll want to be able to present legally defensible proof that your services are reliable, so we won’t do that.

While such claims of 99% are not based on any existing metrological or statistical definition of measurement accuracy, it is an attempt to say that the distance measurement error is 1%, which results in square footage errors of slightly more than 2%.
