Bridging the Gap between Geospatial and Construction

There is certainly a gap in information exchange between the geospatial and construction domains. This is a serious issue, mainly because geospatial systems and engineering surveys are not yet aligned and integrated with building information modelling (BIM). The BIM method is expected to move construction activities from plan-based individual work to model-based collaboration. Such a paradigm shift will bring huge opportunities regarding planning, building and management of the built environment in a more productive, open and sustainable way. Although it is still difficult to entirely close the gap between these two fields, this article shows how that gap can at... (read more)

Combining BIM and GIS in Building Operation and Information Management

The combination of BIM and GIS technology (BIM+GIS) can provide complete and real-time data about facilities and equipment as the basis for more effective monitoring and management of information about a building. GIS technology is already widely used in building information modelling (BIM) and urban information management such as grid systems, public information systems, etc. GIS technology can be used to visualize public information and management information, and when the GIS technology is combined with business data such as process and real-time monitoring information, the information can be managed efficiently. The advantage of the use of GIS in building management... (read more)

How SLAM Technology Can Support New-build Projects

Keeping up with Demand in a Rapid, Cost-Effective and Transparent Way
When it comes to new-build projects, there are numerous significant pressures on delivery, whether it’s keeping to a strict budget, completing on time or even keeping all stakeholders in the loop throughout the build itself. Here, David Fowkes, sales director from 3D mobile mapping specialists GeoSLAM, explores how simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) technology can contribute to streamlining the entire new-build process. As populations across the world continue to grow, demand for new-build housing is consequently on the rise. Our communities require affordable, fit-for-purpose and considerately designed homes that will stand the test of time, whether that’s for an ageing... (read more)
