New GIS product connects with Autodesk Construction Cloud to bridge gap between GIS and BIM
Esri has released ArcGIS GeoBIM, a new web-based product designed to bridge the gap between GIS and BIM by linking systems and workflows.
ArcGIS GeoBIM connects Esri’s ArcGIS with Autodesk BIM Collaborate Pro to provide a spatial context for BIM during the design, construction and operation of large AEC projects.
Autodesk BIM Collaborate Pro is a cloud-based design collaboration, coordination and model co-authoring software, built on the Autodesk Construction Cloud.
“With many global initiatives underway to improve construction, design and planning practices it is critical that today’s AEC professionals can collaborate together with a common view of assets in a geospatial context,” said Craig Evenden, Head of AEC & BIM at Esri UK.
“ArcGIS GeoBIM lets teams work on BIM and GIS data in one place, see all their BIM projects on one map, share information with stakeholders more easily and minimizes costly data conversion, as they don’t need to keep switching between GIS and BIM systems.”
“What we need is a single, authoritative source of truth access point for everyone on our team, a way to bring data and information together that originates from multiple formats,” said Darin Welch, HNTB associate vice president and national geospatial and virtual engagement manager.
“Esri’s ArcGIS GeoBIM connection to the Autodesk Construction Cloud combines survey, design and planning workflows that offer a blended BIM-GIS data experience that equips our team with more informed decision making.”
