Visualizing data using maps in Bluebeam Cloud

This article applies to:

  • Bluebeam Cloud – iOS

Using the Bluebeam Cloud mobile app, you’ll be able to utilize satellite and street maps to contextualize your drawings. This will help improve project efficiency and streamline basic workflows, whether by finding nearby punch items based on geolocation, or visualizing multiple drawings simultaneously using the Layers List.

Maps and the Layers View

In the Bluebeam Cloud mobile app, you can access the maps view by accessing the Menu and selecting Map. 

Within the maps view, you’ll be able to do the following:

  • Switch between street view and satellite view
  • Access your current location
  • Place or view punches and RFIs on your drawing
  • Use the Layers List to view multiple drawings simultaneously

Access the Layers List by selecting Layers  in the top left corner of the maps view. You can then toggle individual drawings on or off by selecting the desired drawing from the list.  

You can also select a punch or RFI on your drawing to toggle the Punch Log or RFI Log directly from the maps view.

Locate Me functionality

Unique to the Bluebeam Cloud mobile experience, you’ll also be able to quickly find relevant information for your project by utilizing the Locate Me button. Simply tap the Locate Me button to find nearby content. To disable the feature, tap the blue button on screen and select Hide marker.

GPS information is not shared with anyone else on the project or stored on the server.
