Geo-BIM Summit

Event details

Date & time:

March 27, 2024 1:30 pm — March 27, 2024 6:30 pm


TU Delft, The Netherlands

Participation in the GeoBIM Summit is free and open to all. You must register for the Summit (and the Member Meeting, if desired). Applications to present close March 1. See below for more information.

In the Building Information Modeling (BIM) world, geographical data about the environment of the construction is becoming increasingly important.

For example, solar studies on individual buildings require the surrounding (geographic) context as input; several construction phases, including building design, assessment, management and complex maintenance planning need to consider representations of wider parts of the built environment. Moreover, sustainability-related assessments of the new buildings might have advantage from a proper inclusion into the building context. On the other hand, in the Geo domain, the need for detailed information about buildings is also growing, such as for analyses that support energy transition or climate adaptation, to support city-level decisions and planning.

There are many initiatives to develop solutions that better facilitate this integration, including projects that realize this integration for a specific use case; automated conversion of data between the two domains; methods to georeference BIM files in a standardized and straightforward way; and profiles for standards that establish the integration for specific use cases.

During this GeoBIM session, such initiatives will be presented as we address the question of “what further is needed to improve the integration?” This will further shape the OGC/buildingSMART Road map on integration of both domains and contribute to the best practices under development.

If you would like to contribute to this session with a presentation about your own work, focusing both on what you achieved and on what pertaining standardization issues you observed from your experience, please send your information by March 1, 2024, and a short abstract (max. 500 words) by filling this form:
