Track: 3D Cities and Campuses
Authors: Scott Stocking, Charles Maher
The University has CAD files that represent the built environment on campus. New data is now coming in from BIM/LiDAR, and GIS layers of campus grounds and utilities. With this gauntlet of data sources, how will the University know what data source is the correct representation of reality to support operations? To address this situation the University has embarked on a SDI Program to create a ‘single version of reality’ via an innovative central data repository. The repository supports systems of record on both data harvesting and models in BIM/GIS/CAD used in enterprise applications.
