    Building information modeling (BIM) and geographic information system (GIS) integration has become an essential part of large-scale projects. While a massive amount of information is produced during the project lifecycle, it’s sometimes hard to use it because it’s trapped inside the BIM and GIS software. This becomes an obstacle for non-users of BIM and GIS—especially on decision-maker levels and from project management perspectives. Using business intelligence software, Microsoft Power BI, and the support of other software like Autodesk Forge and VCAD, Power BI will be able to present intelligent models and GIS layers in an interactive way connected with all types of trackers. In this session, the speaker will present how they created an information center that acts as the single source of truth for their projects using the interactive connection between Power BI, BIM 360 software, ArcGIS, and trackers in Microsoft Excel to give all team members access to up-to-date information.
