BIM through the eyes of GIS
An understanding of BIM is very much dependent upon whose eyes are being used to view and, depending on the angle of viewing, our understanding has a tendency to change.
For many years, information management has been a fundamental cornerstone of GIS processes and principles. GIS delivers the opportunity for data to be defined through metadata and delivered through data schemas and validation. A spatial Common Data Environment (sCDE) then completes the circle for the latest validated data to be shared amongst teams.
These processes ensure the delivery of confidence in project data not just during the design and construction of an asset, but also during its complete lifecycle. Atkins Geospatial see these concepts as pivotal aspects of daily GIS work. BIM needs to better adopt these principles to maximise information assurance over the long term, thus generating the efficiencies in confidences that BIM strives towards. By looking through the eyes of GIS, this session aims to help BIM move from Building Information Management, to Better Information Management.
