At OpenSpace, we’re on a mission to bring new levels of transparency to construction. We combine simple off-the-shelf 360° cameras, computer vision, and AI to make it incredibly easy to capture a complete visual record of a jobsite, share it via the cloud, and track progress remotely. Our customers have used the platform to capture more than ten billion square feet of jobsite imagery in over 600 million images of active construction projects, from jobsites in 91 countries across five continents.
