BIM-GIS Integration for Architecture, Engineering & Construction (AEC)

Course Creators: This course is brought to you in partnership from GeoEnable and Esri UK & Ireland.

Course style: This is a 2 day LIVE, Tutor-lead course where you will be able to ask questions throughout the training.

Who is this for? If you are interested to align BIM with GIS and are a GIS, Geomatics Engineer, Surveyor, Architect, Engineer Technician or Professional who contribute to a BIM process this is the course for you.

Alternative Dates - this course will be held in October 2020, we are also running thee same course in August 2020 (FULLY BOOKED) and September 2020

Day 1: Strategic Overview, Background to BIM and Context for Opportunities

The first day of this 2-day course is delivered by BimEnable, part of GeoEnable. Who will introduce an overview of BIM (Building Information Modelling) & Asset Information in the context of UK BIM Level 2 (BS / PAS 1192) & International Standards (ISO 19650).

Learn how to create a Geospatially-Enabled Information Ecosystem: This will set the scene for the advantages and management of Geo-Enabling your BIM processes including process improvement and change management. Finishing with GIS/BIM applications including the Internet of Things, Smart Cities and Gemini Principles – the UK National Digital Twin.

Day 2: Practical, Hands-On Application of Esri Solutions for BIM-GIS Integration

Delegates will put the theory and principles learned on the first day into practice. The second day is delivered by an Esri UK & Ireland Instructor where delegates will experience demonstrations and hands-on exercises using the ArcGIS platform to integrate with CAD and BIM datasets. You will learn the workflows associated with handling GIS & CAD data and BIM models utilising geoprocessing tools and interactive analysis within ArcGIS Pro. You will also learn how to effectively publish data to ArcGIS Online, so you can collaborate and engage, to provide views of your BIM processes in a geographic and narrative context to your audiences. Visit the Esri UK & Ireland website for this event >here.


A very good working understanding of ArcGIS Pro already is needed. If you do not have this then attendance of either Esri UK & I's Introduction to ArcGIS Pro for Newcomers or Introduction to ArcGIS Pro for GIS Professionals courses is highly recommended.
