What are the benefits of the integration between BIM (Building Information Modeling) and geographic information system (GIS) in infrastructure facility management? This class will demonstrate how combined usage of Esri GIS data and tools and the as-built intelligent models enables your organization to do the following: monitor the entire railway or road integrating the intelligent model into the environment. The use of GIS data like geological surveys, interferometric data, and historical data regarding hydrogeological risks can let us prevent infrastructure damages; plan preventive and corrective maintenance merging data from intelligent models and GIS information, for example, choosing the optimal route to reach the point of interest; choose optimal solutions that respect the environment by exploiting the functionality of specific tools (for example, solar exposure and irradiation); and communicate effectively with the team distributed throughout the territory.
- Discover best practices for getting started with integration between the Esri GIS platform and Autodesk software for facility management
- Learn how to set up a workflow between BIM and GIS
- Explore opportunities and benefits of GIS analysis
- Learn how to foresee major issues to prevent infrastructure damages
Marcella Faraone currently works in Italferr. She is responsible for researching new technologies and innovating workflows with BIM and GIS. She has a BIM management experience with a deep knowledge of BIM concepts, BIM delivery methods, BIM uses. Her work focus mainly on Design phase and construction follow up of the railway infrastructure projects (core business of Italferr). Marcella acquired this vast experience in the Red Line North Underground project in Doha, where she has worked from 2014 as MEP BIM Coordinator of the designers Joint Venture. This project has played a crucial part in the professional life of Marcella. It was the first time she had the occasion of working in an international and multicultural project. This was also a great improvement from a personal point of view. She is a firm believer in BIM methodology, so much that, in 2012 she promoted the introduction of BIM in her company and started pilot project with a group of designers. The project was successful and, from that moment on, BIM has widely adopted by Italferr. Before starting to work with BIM, she took part in several ICT projects as a Project Managers. During this years Marcella acquired experience in GIS platform and awareness of great potentiality of GIS analysis. In the last year Marcella has focused her attention in particular on GIS and BIM data integration. She participated as a speaker at ESRI Italia conference 2018 and she won the “Smart Infrastructure 2018” award Marcella has great interests in science and especially in physics. She enjoys sharing this interest with her lovely daughter during her free time by reading her related topics and conducting simple experiments.
