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.
- How important is it for engineering and facilities management data to be accessible in GIS databases?
- How do the availability of greater computing power, the cloud and ability to display 3D even down to a small mobile device offer greater possibilities for the marriage of design and geospatial?
- How can 3D visualization and satellite imagery data from geospatial be maximized in architectural and 3D cities design?
- How should geography be changed, what are consequences of change, what are the alternatives scenarios?
- How do we drive better performance out of faciities at all levels?
- What can be pulled out of BIM to put in GIS and vice versa? Can you describe use cases?
