With the collaborative efforts of architects, engineers, and contractors through the planning, design, construction, and operations process of a project, critical information can be lost. As building information modeling (BIM) and geographic information systems (GIS) turn to 3D modeling, the possibility to integrate both technologies is set to transform the industry.
GIS provides the geospatial context necessary to plan and operate roads, bridges, airports, and other infrastructure. BIM information is important for the design and construction of the specific structures. Together they provide a more complete set of information to a jobsite. The simultaneous use of BIM and GIS offers the industry a spatial dimension that helps increase efficiency, minimizing job time and waste.Read More
