OnePlan has been announced as a partner for the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Summer Games in Paris, allowing the organizers to use OnePlan’s Venue Twin and GIS Mapping software for more efficiency and collaboration.
This is the first time an Olympic and Paralympic Games has chosen a partner for 3D mapping of sports venues and surrounding areas, which will leave a legacy of accessibility available to future global events in France.
OnePlan tools instantly show area space and capacity sizes and venues can be seen at any angle, in any light, in any weather condition at any time. Venue Twin can anticipate every texture and lighting effect in a venue, even reflections, and can simulate audio in any venue.
“This will be an Olympic and Paralympic Games powered by innovation,” said Tony Estanguet, president of Paris 2024. “The way in which we use technology is evolving and our partnership with OnePlan will facilitate the work of our teams and our entire ecosystem. We will be able to leave a new way of organising events helped by technology.”
The Stade de France (track and field) has already been created to identify and test potential use cases for optimal planning. The placement of infrastructure such as barriers and fencing, vehicles, teams and volunteers can be positioned while the event organiers can work in real-time to plan for any scenario.
The host broadcaster can also benefit by defining camera positions and specific shots to instantly see how the 2024 Games will look by viewers around the globe.
OnePlan’s use across the Games will reduce the need for site visits for stakeholders, cutting CO2 emissions associated with these visits with an eye toward sustainability.
“Paris 2024 will be a landmark Olympic and Paralympic Games, driven by innovation and sustainability,” said OnePlan Founder and Chief Executive Officer Paul Foster. “Our collaborative, easy-to-use software will streamline the planning of all event and venue operations before and during the Games. From anywhere in the world, users can feel like they are actually in the venues, walking the routes, hearing and seeing the environment as it will be during the Games.”
