    • Moving design logic into software promotes reuse, knowledge sharing, and continuous improvement. This is the foundational concept needed for our industry to achieve scale
    • Collaboration around a shared model allows each expert to maintain their specialized domain model, while providing stakeholders with a holistic view of the entire project during the early design stages
    • Two key observations surfaced when we were researching urban real estate development: that the real estate entitlement process is laborious and expensive, and that site context is the primary driver in building design
    • We noticed that real estate developers, land-use specialists, and architects were spending considerable time gathering and consolidating data from a multitude of sources to understand development potential and constraints. Furthermore, this process is repeated for every candidate site by every interested developer.
    • we painstakingly digitized Austin’s planning codes
    • Our product can interpret the spatial relationships that form the basis of zoning codes including district overlays, floodplains, distance from a specific street, parcel adjacencies, corner lots, and Austin-specific view corridors.
    • Flux Metro gives planners a three-dimensional view of the zoning codes as they’ve never seen before.
    • planners immediately saw the benefits of using Flux Metro to plan and communicate changes to the zoning codes
    • take advantage of low-cost cloud computing
    • we end up spending most of our time doing mundane work such as data collection, code reviews, counting, e-mails, and repetitive work that has previously been done.
    • Yet this is critical work and its accuracy is essential to a project’s success
    • firms that are moving towards compensation models based on the full value created, rather than on hours spent
    • Data-driven collaborative cloud-based technology helps with this new business model by allowing us to design better buildings in less time
    • Context is a primary consideration in architectural design. By creating a data-rich virtual environment, our tools can help architects assess the fitness of a proposed design in relation to its context.
    • This contextual awareness is especially valuable when performing energy modeling, daylighting analysis
    • Software engineering has indeed borrowed many concepts from the world of architecture including co-opting the title, “architect”. The structure of software with its frameworks, scaffolding, and interconnects parallels the structure of buildings. Christopher Alexander’s seminal work2 on architectural design patterns inspired the formalization of design patterns in software. Like building design, software development has a strong bespoke design culture; software projects are just as likely to run over budget and schedule as construction projects. Of course, the obvious difference with software is that copies can be made essentially for free.
    • How can software engineering return the favor to architecture and help improve the scale economies of our industry?
    • Seeking answers to these questions motivates our team and our work.

    • while Stand-alone licenses of Autodesk software may be installed on virtual machines, sessions depending on such licenses must be accessed through the hardware directly supporting the virtual machine, not through a network connection. Access to remote sessions of Autodesk software over a network is only permitted if you have a Network License.
    • The Session Specific Network License type only applies to application virtualization technologies, not virtual machines. Permission to install Autodesk materials in an application virtualization environment is reserved to Supported Virtualization Applications as defined in the System Requirements and Recommendation documentation of each product.

    • BIM promises to provide well-structured datasets that can be incorporated with existing GIS applications to improve asset management, emergency response, property management, and facilities management projects.
    • GIS applications can also be fused with 3D GIS for solving problems associated with 3D networks, volumes, and complex geometries

    • Depuis plus de deux ans, nous menons une réflexion avec Open Geospatial Consortium afin de trouver un modèle conceptuel fonctionnel.
    • Il faut simplifier ces échanges qui existent déjà, mais de manière trop disparate et sans standard : des gains de productivité sont réalisables.
    • L’agrégation des modèles issus du BIM et des modèles issus du SIG ouvrent des perspectives de développement pour modéliser des villes complètes, et plus encore…
    • du côté du BIM le langage IFC tient la corde, du côté du SIG, le GML
    • Une fois que le modèle commun sera trouvé, explique Christophe Castaing, chaque système alimentera l’autre d’une mine d’informations. Les éléments ajoutés pourront être envoyées vers la data base via un portail web dont les spécificités techniques restent à définir.

    • zone qui se chevauche
    • Si l’on considère la gestion du patrimoine (Facility Management), BIM et SIG contiennent les deux des informations qui peuvent être utiles.
    • Différentes méthodes existent pour transférer les données entre les deux systèmes, soit via un lien entre les bases de données, soit via un format propriétaire ou les IFC en utilisant un convertisseur. A l’avenir, et cela a déjà commencé sur certains projets de construction/maintenance de routes, BIM et GIS devront être complètement intégrés tant leurs données sont complémentaires.
