How Digitalization in the Construction Industry Drives the Geospatial Business Forward

In a recent survey among geospatial surveyors, the growth in construction, infrastructure and urban planning is revealed as an important role of the optimistic outlook for the geospatial industry. Increasing investments in large infrastructure and construction projects, and the rise of building information modelling (BIM), are expected to bring bright prospects both for geospatial equipment manufacturers as geospatial service providers. The survey was conducted by 'GIM International', the leading publication for mapping and surveying professionals worldwide. In the GIM International study, a relatively high number of surveying companies mentioned the AEC and infrastructure markets as areas where they foresee the biggest possibilities... (read more)

Everything You Need to Know about Scan-to-BIM

Scan-to-BIM brings the documentation of existing buildings into line with the modern digital planning methodology called building information modelling (BIM). This article describes how scan-to-BIM uses 3D laser scanning to digitally capture an existing building as a point cloud, for the creation and updating of a BIM model. The primary method of scan-to-BIM is to use 3D laser scanners to capture a high-density point cloud of a physical building, structure, or site, which leads to the creation and maintenance of a BIM model that reflects "as-is" conditions. Downstream applications for models made using scan-to-BIM can range from as-built documentation, project... (read more)
