Welcome to Pulsar Memory

Points of Interest

Points of Interest have two categories of attributes which need to be captured, but today the quality and completeness varies greatly among the content creators:

  • Static attributes, which have a low rate of change, and will be consistent across a large time span, and
  • Transitory attributes, which will often reflect a project-specific set of findings or a building lifecycle event. 

All attributes can be evaluated objectively and subjectively, depending on the needs of the information consumer.  

  • For example, parking spaces can be evaluated objectively (there are 45 parking spaces) or subjectively (there appears to be enough parking to serve the current traffic volume.) 

Content creators are often asked to provide both types of evaluations, but they still need to specify the industry standards and any jurisdictional variances. Entities that commission the work depend on the content creator for the domain expertise.

  • GPS Geo-location technology is accurate between 3 and 30 feet.  Accuracy is reduced by cloud cover, trees, and buildings. 
  • Recent technological advances like Real Time Kinematics (RTK), provides centimeter level accuracy to identify points of interest (for example, equipment, buried lines, wall studs, plumbing and electrical conduit, hidden access points, obscured equipment).
  • Pulsar Memory will install base stations in client’s buildings, allowing the use of RTK roving stations
  • Current technology requires the use of an external receiver with a smart-phone; next generation technology will include hardware integral to the device RTK: Want Centimeter Accuracy on Your iPad with Arrow GNSS? - Eos (eos-gnss.com)
  • Pulsar Memory geotagging points of interest with RTK and master data structure allows indexing of precise locations for ANY Point of Interest in the Built Environment.
  • The reduction of location errors and the speed of subsequent location identification increases the downstream value to Pulsar Memory subscribers.

Point Of Interest

The Pulsar Memory Service will increase the granularity of the information and will provide the domain nomenclature and standards as an integral part of the service. Virtually any aspect of a commercial building will have a classification (its ID) and standard (a set of objective measures to determine compliance and conformity to the building codes and owner requirements) from the Uniform Classification of Construction Systems and Assemblies (aka UniFormat). 

The Pulsar Memory Service will proactively prompt according to the standards, and the classifications will be searchable attributes.
