Panel Discussion from Intergeo – Integrating Geospatial and Architectural Design Data for Future Cities & Communities
October 20th, 2011 by Sanjay Gangal
It is important for engineering and facilities management data to be accessible in GIS databases. There are several possible reasons for this. Today, there is a greater need for accurate facilities management data, and for extending mapping to the indoor environment. The prevalence of BIM makes it possible to have detailed structural models of buildings, bridges and roads, which enhance the GIS database that may be used in 3D city planning. The availability of greater computing power, the cloud and ability to display 3D even down to a small mobile device open up extraordinary possibilities for design in a geo context. And finally, the need for sustainable design.
This is a panel discussion between Sanjay Gangal of GISCafe.Com & Andreas Ulmer of Esri Procedural.
Here are some of the questions discussed in the panel.
