Kelvin Wong of UCL is organising an Introduction to 3D GIS and BIM. This free event promises to be a great introduction to the subject and as of today (09/01/2017) there are only three places remaining so book pronto!

The day will be split into two parts. The morning session will focus on 3D GIS, starting with a short lecture introducing the topic, followed by an overview of current research trends in 3D GIS. This will be followed by a practical session where you’ll learn how to create a 3D City Model using FME software, and visualise this model in Esri’s ArcScene.

The afternoon session will commence with a short introduction to Building Information Modelling and how it is similar to, and different from, 3D GIS. This will be followed by a second lecture on approaches to integrating BIM and GIS. You’ll be given an opportunity to undertake a small BIM/GIS integration task using software including Autodesk Revit, FME and ArcScene, and at the end of the day, you’ll have integrated the 3D City Model from the morning session with the BIM data from the afternoon session.

The event is free to attend. Places are limited, and will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis (20 in total – you will be waitlisted if you are not allocated a place). You are expected to have some GIS experience (e.g. using ESRI tools) to participate and will have an interest in both GIS and BIM.
