Combine GIS and BIM to Improve Infrastructure Development

Course Information

Today, cities are grappling with a range of concerns related to the sustainability and resilience of their critical infrastructure. This includes everything from roads and bridges to essential facilities. As a result, the demand for sustainable, resilient and efficiently managed communities is on the rise. However, this presents a significant challenge: how to seamlessly coordinate the construction and maintenance of critical infrastructure while keeping pace with the growing demands of modern society.

The answer lies in the integration of building information modeling (BIM) and geographic information system (GIS) data to help streamline the flow of information among construction and operational data systems. These advancements have become pivotal for increasing efficiency and achieving substantial cost savings in architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) projects. Given the AEC industry’s responsibility for managing vast assets worth billions of dollars, access to accurate, geolocated data is crucial for making informed choices and improving operations.
