SSUD70-308: BIM and BIG DATA (Geographical Information Systems (GIS))


This subject covers use of geo-demographic data to inform BIM in application to urban design and planning, and architectural master planning. This is important in order to establish accurate working bases for particular buildings design and delivery using BIM/Lean/IPD following the project phases of the buildingSMART Australasia BIM Framework. The subject provides another opportunity for observing and using BIM software platforms in extended applications. The subject is taught in a highly interactive environment over two intensives, one of two days duration, and one of one day duration. The first intensive is dedicated to aspects of utilising BIM software in GIS application. The second intensive introduces students to GIS applications via a specific practical exercise with a focus on use of data in the broader application of urban design and architectural master planning.

This subject has been designed as a micro-credentialed course for the benefit of industry professionals.
