With the theme “Enabling Tomorrow’s Connected Infrastructure”, GEO| Design+BIM 2018 will delve deeper into the integration of geospatial technology and BIM, and other associated industry trends including big data analytics, IoT, drones, VR, robotics, cloud worksharing, city information modelling, digital twin, and many, many more.
Pix4D, a Swiss-based company, is the industry leader in professional drone mapping and photogrammetry software. Its Pix4Dbim solution provides construction professionals with powerful mapping solutions for planning and scheduling, earthworks, as-built monitoring, inspections, 4D BIM, and project documentation.
“Drone mapping is an exciting technology. It has a massive potential in construction projects and helps teams to rapidly gather as-built data from any jobsite that can be used for numerous applications. However, it’s not standard practice yet. Construction companies right now are still in evaluation mode. We attended GEO|Design+BIM last year and initiated very interesting discussions around the use of geospatial data analytics and 3D modelling in BIM processes for project planning and monitoring. Coming back this year, we want to enhance those discussions and present what’s next for construction,” said Sabrina Cardot, Marketing Manager for Construction.
Having Pix4D as a sponsor at GEO|Design+BIM this year is a strong indication that drones are becoming vital to the construction sector. “It’s gratifying to witness the digital transition of construction sector and how geospatial technology is getting integrated in every workflow. We’re proud that GEO|Design+BIM is serving as the connecting platform between two communities to discuss new solutions and collaborations,” added Anamika Das, Vice President, Outreach and Business Development at Geospatial Media and Communications, the conference organiser.
