Researchers at ETH Zurich in Switzerland's Archilyse spinoff have devised software that enables simulations and fine-grained analyses of real estate that can be made accessible to developers, architects, and real estate firms.

On the platform, a building's plan is established in relation to a geographical space, and converted into a virtual model within a model of its environment.

This allows the Archilyse team to calculate, for example, how much water or how many mountain peaks can be seen from each square centimeter, as well as communicating spatial perceptions of the room.

Integrating data sources faster was enabled via machine learning and artificial intelligence advancements.

Archilyse founder Matthias Standfest said the company’s customer segment, which includes pension insurance companies, land managers, real estate portals and developers, and companies with their own property management units, “is mostly in the multi-billion segment.”
