Reality Management

Reality Management API

Reality capture 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 iTwins. The Reality Management API provides the ability to retrieve information about the reality data that is associated with an infrastructure iTwins.

Reality Data

Reality data properties represents 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 reality data properties is available here.


Reality data are bound to iTwins. iTwins are used to represent engineering projects for an infrastructure asset. iModels, reality data, and engineering documents can be associated with a iTwin. The iTwins API is used to manage iTwins, iTwin team members, and iTwin roles. See more information about the iTwins API here
