Integrating GIS and BIM using City Engine
Track: Facilities Operations and Maintenance
Authors: Eric Benson, Rob Find
George Washington's Mount Vernon has recently developed a BIM to provide a framework for documenting its historic buildings. However, BIM environments lack the ability to show the structure in its surrounding landscape and is expensive and difficult to learn, posing serious barriers to casual users or the public. In order to solve these issues, Mount Vernon is using City Engine's web scenes as a medium to view both its BIM model and GIS data together in a seamless 3D environment.
