Between the Poles: The convergence of geospatial and BIM is gathering steam

Between the Poles: The convergence of geospatial and BIM is gathering steam | Complex Insight  - Understanding our world | Scoop.it

In the construction world, 3D modelling and model-based design, which integrate BIM, GIS and survey, and laser-scanning (LiDAR) in a 3D visualisation environment, are increasingly being used to improve the design and build phases of the construction process.  

According to McGraw-Hill Construction, the overall adoption of BIM has increased from 17% in 2007 to 71% in 2012 in the US, registering a 45% growth over the last three years, or 400% growth over the last five years.  McGraw-Hill Construction estimates that the use of BIM for infrastructure is about three years behind the BIM use on vertical projects but predicts that adoption in the horizontal market will occur at a faster rate than the rate of adoption in the vertical market.

ComplexInsight's insight:

As smart buildings get interconnected with city infrastructure we will start to see new types of city management  and governance applications. As BIM and GIS combine with smart sensors we begin to get building level operating systems for developers, owners and operators. Local government will begin to look to see how these integrate into city and regional governance platforms over the coming years especially in areas such as energy and water use, transport planning and perfomance compliance.

#BIM and #GIS convergence continues to gain ground.

Software BIM/GIS Companies like bim+ (bimplus.net), Onuma, ESRI, Revizto, Trimble, Autodesk, Bentley, and others seem to be seeing this and are working on some innovative solutions. (For example, take a look at an earlier Onuma Ted talk http://sco.lt/4yGuSf ;).

It makes a lot of sense, afterall, we now have an intelligent building BIM model that is connected to a ton of Information. Once the building is built it needs to run, that means monitoring energy, water/grid usage, even see the parking and population effect. Plus of course surveying and visualization needs (e.g. things get really exciting when you can look at a building with VR/AR x-ray vision on an see the infromation you need). 

Smart Buildings make Smart Cities.

Computer graphics market will exceed $142 Billion by 2016

Computer graphics market will exceed $142 Billion by 2016 | Complex Insight  - Understanding our world | Scoop.it

CG industry currently growing at a 5.3% rate. New opportunities are opening up in all aspects of the industry.

JPR expects the development of traditional segments like CAD/CAM expand as new design approaches in automotive, aerospace, and architecture are adopted. Visualization, a market that has been almost dormant for the past few years, is now poised for significant growth due to the availability of more powerful and less expensive visualization technologies.

ComplexInsight's insight:

As has been proven for a long time - where gaming goes - simulation and visualisation markets follow. Jon Peddie has been clear on the potential  value prop of mobile to 3D adoption for a long time and as these figures show - its a key ingredient for delviery of new solutions.

As always another quality article by Jon Peddie Research. It's great to see Mobile leading the pack. I've been in the CG industry for almost 20 years now. I've never seen so much activity and so much potential. Great time to be involved in visualization and CG.
