BIM and GIS: An Introduction
As engineering and architecture projects get larger, they need more information about their spatial context. With the adoption of Building Information Modeling (BIM) standards by governments around the world, the use of GIS to provide spatial context is starting to be embedded as a key component of BIM project delivery. GIS users need more information about how to interface GIS with new and emerging 3D domains that impact BIM projects, including classic BIM applications as well as new technologies such as IoT, AR, and VR. This session will offer a brief overview on the current state of BIM-GIS integration, discuss Esri's future directions, and provide some practical insights on how to advise customers and improve project outcomes.
