    Architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) professionals need interoperability between their BIM (Building Information Modeling) and geographic information system (GIS) tools to solve, plan, design, construct, and manage projects in a sustainable and resilient manner. They need tools to optimize materials use, energy use, human resources, and the long-term impact on the natural world. Connecting Esri’s GIS solutions with civil and building BIM improves coordination and efficiency. Enabling data to flow between these GIS and BIM solutions enables a more sustainable and resilient world. This session will discuss and demonstrate how location intelligence helps built and natural environments to thrive. Customer examples will be presented with an emphasis on sustainability topics highlighting Civil 3D software, InfraWorks software, and Revit software combined with Esri ArcGIS. The moderator of this session will facilitate a series of five-minute presentations by multiple customers using Autodesk and Esri software to produce work that addresses these topics. This session will include a moderated panel discussion.
