A year after the first "Great Debate," we reconvene to discuss what’s changed. Has the divide between Building Information Modeling (BIM) and GIS (geographic information systems) widened or have the lines of demarcation between them both blurred to the point of being indistinguishable? How is the convergence of tools and approaches affecting architects, engineers and facility, campus, and city managers? Are the rules different for utilities? Join us for a spirited discussion where audience participation drives much of the discussion. Panelists include Autodesk technical specialists Peter Southwood and Mike Schlosser; the panel is moderated by industry journalist Matt Ball.
- Describe where GIS and BIM technology are headed and how they interface
- Discuss and debate on technology directions for BIM and GIS
