GIS, CAD and BIM for Utilities and Communications
While the capabilities of GIS and CAD are well known, the concepts around Building Information Modeling (BIM) are less understood. This presentation will discuss the different dimensions of BIM and how GIS and CAD provide the foundation for Intelligent Design Solutions that enable the BIM framework. Emphasis will be placed on various dimensions of BIM including Design and Planning, Scheduling, Estimating, Sustainability, Asset Management and Safety. The presentation will also discuss the integration and application workflow aspects related to the utility and communications industries.
