Geo Plus BIM Does Not Make GeoBIM

The added value of integrating geomatics (Geo) with building information modelling (BIM) to solve contemporary multidisciplinary challenges of our urban environment is widely recognized, writes Jantien Stoter. Much research and many projects have shown how geodata has been successfully used in design and construction activities, and how BIM data serves as a source for geodata. It seems straightforward, but there are various challenges still to be overcome, as outlined here. An architect (BIM) can take environmental information (Geo) into account while designing a building, and a municipality can then automatically check the design (BIM) against its environmental impact (Geo), such...
