OVERVIEW

 

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a process that generates and manages information about a building during its entire lifecycle including planning, design, construction, operation, maintenance, and demolition. BIM is a suite of technologies, standards, and processes that integrate to form a realistic 3D representation of the physical and functional components of a building. BIM technology allows an accurate virtual model of a building to be constructed digitally. BIM offers interoperability of information for building construction and facility maintenance and is therefore primarily a process by which you generate and manage building data. It typically uses three-dimensional, real-time, dynamic building-modeling software to manage and increase productivity in building design and construction. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and BIM integration offers more efficient projects and better outcomes for communities. BIM is modernizing GIS and Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) business practices by improving predictive maintenance, asset tracking, and facilities management.  The power of BIM is growing and transforming operations.

The Map and Geospatial Hub 3D Explorer, the First Ever Library Digital Twin

Matthew Toro, Director of Maps, Imagery, and Geospatial Services, Map and Geospatial Hub, Arizona State University

Toro Matt ASU.jpg

This presentation describes the world’s first ever library digital twin, the Map and Geospatial Hub 3D Explorer. The 3D Explorer is a live, web GIS application that models the indoor space and assets of a specialized map/GIS library department at Arizona State University. The application is public-facing and serves multiple purposes, for both patron and staff end users. These include asset discovery and access, visualization and virtual touring of the interior space, and asset management, among others. Custom features and functionality include simple and advanced search, dynamic visualization of queried asset location, a viewer for asset images, a viewer for 360-degree panorama photos of the interior space, and others. The application’s software stack comprises a combination of proprietary and open source tools. For transparency and replicability, the application’s source code and corresponding documentation, are available on GitHub.
