BIM adoption may become next construction standard according to survey

Friday, February 19th, 2010

“Although the BIM adoption rate has slowed due to a challenging economic climate, 51 percent of survey respondents to [the 2009 survey from Building Design+Construction] have added or plan to add more BIM seat licenses, down from 63 percent of companies in 2008. The total number of seats purchased is also expected to decline by 56 percent since 2008.”

Is BIM the Next Construction Standard?

3D City GIS modeling software in Bentley V8i

Friday, February 19th, 2010

Just released – V8i (SELECTseries 1) versions of Bentley Map, Bentley Descartes, Bentley Geospatial Server, and Bentley Geo Web Publisher further extend this portfolio to include new 3D City GIS capabilities.

This functionality is said to enable governments to perform urban planning, noise simulation, shadow analysis, natural disaster mitigation, public relationship management, and 3D analysis and design.

This is said to be pertinent to AEC professionals because, according to the press release: “Bentley Geospatial Server V8i (SELECTseries 1) provides a unique way to combine 3D GIS and 3D engineering/Building Information Modeling information by leveraging Bentley innovations such as i-models for semantically rich and secure file-based information sharing. (An i-model is a container for open infrastructure information exchange featuring provenance (that is, knowledge of its origin and evolution)).
