HoloBuilder is ready to scale with you and your organization!

Connect your internal tools to HoloBuilder with our brand-new HoloBuilder API


What is the HoloBuilder API?

The HoloBuilder API (Application Programming Interface) allows you to take your HoloBuilder usage even further:

  • Remove data silos by connecting HoloBuilder to your internal tools and help your team unleash the full potential of your virtual jobsite.

  • With the initial release of our API (v. 1.0), you can access HoloBuilder projects to import 360° photos, 360 Markups, tags, filters, sheets, waypoints, and more into your existing tools via code. This feature allows you to teach your program which specific data to download and when.

  • That means, the API "reads" the data to inform other applications. Your team can write their own applications that makes best use of this data.

What data can be accessed with the HoloBuilder API?

Currently, you can only "read" information on a project level. The following information, among other, is available at the moment:

  • 360° image files

  • 360 Markups information

  • categories & filters

  • sheets information

  • location information

  • and more

Note: In v. 1.0 of the API, no user information is available.

What are the use cases supported by the HoloBuilder API?

Powerful use cases include importing HoloBuilder data straight into your GIS platforms or extracting tagged 360° photos into your in-house reporting tools:

  • Generate Custom Reports, e.g., with PowerBI

    As a HoloBuilder Enterprise Customer using the API you can create reports by extracting the available project data from HoloBuilder and pushing this directly into your reporting tool of choice for a more personalized reporting.

  • Integrate data into, e.g., GIS platforms
    As a HoloBuilder Enterprise Customer using the API you can include your HoloBuilder data into any GIS platforms you might be using for mapping your capture locations on a global scale.
