Description

Description

A year after the first "Great Debate," we reconvene to discuss what’s changed. Has the divide between Building Information Modeling (BIM) and GIS (geographic information systems) widened or have the lines of demarcation between them both blurred to the point of being indistinguishable? How is the convergence of tools and approaches affecting architects, engineers and facility, campus, and city managers? Are the rules different for utilities? Join us for a spirited discussion where audience participation drives much of the discussion. Panelists include Autodesk technical specialists Peter Southwood and Mike Schlosser; the panel is moderated by industry journalist Matt Ball.

Target Audience

CAD/BIM Manager, Project Manager/Engineer, Geospatial professionals, planners, facility managers, city managers, campus managers, and anyone who has an interest in the application and interoperability between CAD, BIM, and GIS
