F.C.’s DDI Inc. Hired to Analyze Area for New Building in San Fransisco

Developers of the tallest building in the United States, west of the Mississippi, have hired Falls Church-based Digital Design & Imaging Service Inc. to analyze and document the potential views. The building, which is being designed by Pelli Clark Pelli Architects, is located in the San Francisco Business district near Mission Street. DDIS was hired for their proprietary surveillance aerostat balloon and optics technology.

They have recently captured 360 degree views from key proposed floors as a site planning and rendering tool for the architect. The resulting virtual reality images are also used to price and market floors for the developer. DDIS’s proprietary aerial camera platform can produce up to 170 megabyte spherical or cylindrical panoramas to simulate a tenant’s views from key locations.
