    A city can employ a variety of smart gadgets and consider itself a “smart city.” But to increase efficiency and productivity, a smart city uses data and integrated technologies to improve internal processes—ultimately improving the lives of the citizens and businesses that fill it. With the increasing collaboration between Autodesk and Esri, a city or organization can better use geographic information system (GIS) data throughout the project lifecycle. BIM (Building Information Modeling) and GIS integrations empower users to introduce geographic context within a project to assess the environmental impact, collect and analyze data from the field, and improve communication with stakeholders. This session will show users integrations that can benefit them throughout the engineering process. We’ll demo the connections between Autodesk and Esri, specifically focusing on functions in the planning and design process. We’ll demonstrate specific workflows, showing the business value of integrating engineering workflows with BIM and GIS.
