Esri to showcase GIS and BIM integration for better infrastructure planning and design at GEO|Design+BIM 2018

The Netherlands: GEO| Design+BIM, a platform that highlights the use of geospatial data analytics and Building Information Modelling (BIM) in asset spatial design, construction, and operation and maintenance, has announced Esri as a Gold Sponsor. The event is scheduled to take place from 1-2 November 2018, in Amsterdam.

With the theme “Enabling Tomorrow’s Connected Infrastructure”, GEO| Design+BIM 2018 will delve further into the integration of geospatial technology and BIM, and other associated industry trends including big data analytics, IoT, drones, VR, robotics, cloud worksharing, city information modeling, digital twin, etc.

Esri, the global leader in location intelligence, recently announced its alliance with Autodesk to enhance BIM and GIS workflows integration. The integration aims to improve efficiency and collaboration for owner/operators, such as city and regional government planners and executives, and AEC firms who plan, design, and carry out capital projects.

“Combining location information during the design and construction phase brings context to all types of projects,” said Danny R. Spillmann, Director, Global Business Development, Natural Resources & AEC.  “Our focus is to enable organizations to respond quickly to changing environments by improving workflows that integrate BIM and GIS information so that everyone can participate and engage throughout the project lifecycle.”

“We’re delighted to take this journey with Esri to foster our common objective of connecting geospatial community with AEC community, and highlight the value of geospatial integration in BIM workflow at GEO|Design+BIM. With continuous support from Esri, GEO|Design+BIM is developing as a mature platform for business users to network and collaborate,” adds Anamika Das, Vice President, Outreach and Business Development at Geospatial Media and Communications, the conference organizer.
