BIM and GIS in one environment to see your projects in a geospatial context | usBIM.geotwin | ACCA software

BIM and GIS in one environment to see your projects in a geospatial context

One of the main limitations of the technologies currently adopted for the digitisation of construction is the static integration of data between BIM and GIS systems, which leads to numerous limitations in the management of digital twins.

With usBIM.geotwin, on the other hand, you have no limits in managing digital twins, because its technology is based on a dynamic, two-way integration between the openBIM® and GIS systems.

usBIM.geotwin dynamically integrates openBIM® models and processes (ACCA's usBIM) with maps, scenes and GIS functions (Esri's ArcGIS®) to build and manage Digital Twin Geospatial without dimensional limitations.

Each platform manages its own data, but the user only works on one interface.

Experience your projects within a comprehensive geospatial context seamlessly integrated into usBIM.geotwin's unified environment. This integration with the openBIM management platform eliminates the need for data import, providing a transparent link to GIS.

With usBIM.geotwin manage IFC/openBIM®, BIM/3D models, point clouds, textured meshes, etc. geolocalised and integrated with GIS.

The models enrich the GIS with geometric information and data (BIM, IoT, FM, etc.) of buildings and infrastructure for a complete digital representation of the built environment.

Using usBIM.geotwin for managing geospatial digital twins enables real-time examination of interactions between project elements and their environment. This facilitates assessing the impact of design decisions on surrounding areas.

All changes and updates made to the digital model are, in fact, immediately available on the GIS.

usBIM.geotwin also offers an issue resolution system to manage issues (also in BCF format) and produce design reviews on BIM models and point clouds.

Streamline project management and ensure secure sharing at any scale

The large volume of data is the biggest problem when putting together the details of BIM, with all the information of each building object, with the spatial scale view of GIS.

With usBIM.geotwin all BIM information is always available to the GIS for geospatial queries without any limit on number and size.

Manage complex projects for both point works and linear infrastructures such as roads, railways, bridges, tunnels... without limitations on the amount of data to be managed.

Access large masses of data with potential file representations of the desired size including point clouds, textured meshes, openBIM models or proprietary formats.

Make spatial queries on the GIS and immediately see the 2D and 3D shapes of the building's BIM model to optimise design choices.

Visualize, directly from the geospatial perspective, the intricate details of federations comprising architectural, structural, building, or infrastructure models, along with their associated IFC properties and comprehensive datasets.

usBIM.geotwin supports the use of openBIM open formats (IFC in all 2x3, 4.0, 4.3 formats) in line with European standards and useful for perennial access to data, sharing of information with all involved stakeholders and co-ordination of activities.

The security and confidentiality of the data managed with usBIM.geotwin is in full compliance with the European GDPR; on premise installation is also provided for users with special requirements.

Access all information seamlessly, ensuring real-time updates at every stage of the project lifecycle

The connection of GIS and BIM technologies goes beyond the purely design phase and integrates the execution and maintenance phases.

Assess the spatial and territorial implications of design decisions, improve collaboration and coordination between multidisciplinary design teams and optimise urban planning and maintenance of resources and infrastructure.

Only with usBIM.geotwin do you have:

  • integration with connectors to Facility Management and IoT;
  • the direct use of models with virtual and augmented reality;
  • CDE functions at spatial scale (such as usBIM.editor for dynamic IFC editing on the GIS and usBIM.resolver for issue management);
  • integration with ArcGIS online or Enterprise.

The updating of data from the BIM to the GIS is dynamic. Every change made by the various working groups on the CDE brings dynamic changes to the GIS, which always has current data for queries.

What is a geospatial digital twin?

A geospatial digital twin is a digital model of an environment, asset, building, infrastructure, etc. enhanced with geospatial data.

GIS technology is used to create a scaled digital replica of the physical environment, including buildings, roads and bridges.

GIS provides the context needed to analyze, simulate, and optimize design solutions. The interconnection between BIM and GIS can be used for any type of geospatial query.

By combining GIS geospatial data and BIM technology, geospatial digital twins can:

  • provide a complete view of the current status of the project;
  • offer powerful simulation tools to accurately prepare for the occurrence of potential problems and to take appropriate corrective measures;
  • allow informed decisions on investment and infrastructure development.

The integrated vision provided by geospatial digital twins can be used to improve the design and decision-making process in numerous sectors, including for example asset management, urban planning, infrastructure monitoring.

Why is a geospatial digital twin useful?

Geospatial digital twins are extremely useful as they provide immediately available information in the design, construction and maintenance of a work. There are numerous fields in which they can be used (optimization of environmental resources, energy saving, safety and much more). For example, it is possible to exploit GIS information to:

  • identify the amount of rainwater that can be collected and consequently design adequate and well-sized collection systems to irrigate public green areas, parks and gardens;
  • guide designers in choosing the orientation, location and construction materials of works in areas at risk of flooding;
  • to identify dangerous situations at a local level, evaluate in detail each single element that is generating anomalous behaviour and remotely monitor the infrastructure.

How digital twins and GIS optimize the operation of smart buildings?

The integration between Digital twin and GIS is revolutionizing the AEC sector and setting the stage for the design and management of intelligent buildings and smart cities.

By leveraging digital twins, building designers and owners have instant access to digital representations of thousands of physical objects and systems that can be updated and monitored in real time.

GIS further enhances these management and control capabilities by providing geospatial analyses that make it easier to geolocate and understand the interactions and interdependencies between different elements.

The combination of these two technologies helps to monitor the performance and energy consumption of buildings, the scheduling and costs of maintenance interventions, the operation of HVAC equipment, the efficiency and safety of infrastructure assets, etc. in a much more effective way.
