Reality Data API

Reality modeling is the process of capturing the physical reality of an infrastructure asset, creating a representation of it, and maintaining it through continuous surveys. Reality models add real-world digital context to infrastructure projects. The Reality Data API provides the ability to retrieve information about the reality data that is associated with an infrastructure project.

The Reality Data API is deprecated and will be removed in the future, Please use the Reality Management API instead.


The class defines properties that describe the content of the reality data and provides an access point to the data stored in a blob container, using Microsoft Azure Storage technologies. RealityData properties represent the descriptive data related to a reality data. In addition to this, reality data content is stored as files and folders within a blob container uniquely associated to this reality data. Individual files and folders follow, from the root of the reality data, a normal file tree structure.

A more detailed documentation on RealityData properties is available here.


RealityData are bound to Projects. Projects are used to represent engineering projects for an infrastructure asset. iModels, reality data, and engineering documents can be associated with a project. The iTwins API is used to create or query project iTwins See more information about the iTwins API here. The Access Control API is used to manage project team members and project roles See more information about the Access Control API here.
