Abstract

GeoBIM integration in practice: from design to automatic building permission issuing
Research in both Geo- and BIM fields has recently focused on the integration of the respective data , in order to enable the many advantages that have widely been recognized (e.g. update of 3D city models, improved analysis, increased level of detail of the information, accurate reference data for design, etc.). Many of these studies start from high-level considerations or generic assumptions. However, to provide GeoBIM solutions that actually help the practitioners in the field, it is necessary to tackle also challenges, deriving from the actual production and use of data in real practice. The EuroSDR GeoBIM project, in which National Mapping and Cadastral Agencies from 12 European Countries are involved, investigates the GeoBIM issue with a bottom-up approach. The project seeks consensus from different stakeholders at an international level, starting from both current practice and existing data to develop initial solutions and guidelines for concrete use cases. One of these use cases is the building permission issuing, developed and tested with real world workflows (e.g. in the Netherlands). In support of this practice-oriented research, a more technically-oriented initiative has started, i.e. the ISPRS/EuroSDR GeoBIM benchmark 2019. This initiative addresses another challenge for using interoperable GeoBIM information, i.e. support by existing tools and software for standardised data from both domains and having tests and test data available to test such support.
Both the EuroSDR GeoBIM project and the ISPRS/EuroSDR GeoBIM benchmark initiative will be presented.

Biography

Francesca Noardo is Postdoc in the 3D geoinformation group at the Delft University of Technology (https://3d.bk.tudelft.nl/fnoardo/), and research fellow in the Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions (AMS). She works towards the integration of geoinformation with BIM, envisaging the concrete employment of such technology for smart cities applications through the use of open standard data models and open technologies. She has a Master degree in Architecture (Restoration and Enhancement) from the Politecnico di Torino (Italy) (2012), where she also obtained her PhD degree (2016), developed in the geomatics research field. Recent projects which she is leading are: the ‘EuroSDR GeoBIM project’; the ISPRS ‘GeoBIM benchmark’ – reference study on software support for open standards of city and building models. Her research proposal  ‘Multisource Spatial data integration for smart city applications’ was recently awarded with a prestigious  fellowship in the Leading Fellows Postdoc programme. She is secretary in the ISPRS Working Group IV/2:‘Ontologies, Semantics, and Knowledge Representation for Geospatial Information’.

Abstract

Digitalization in construction projects
Construction industry digitalization is a rational step forward to increase productivity and efficiency. This presentation is going to cover standardization in this filed on national and European level. General rules set in standards and related documents will be supported by use cases from infrastructure, residential and commercial projects that has been build in Czech Republic during last years.

Abstract

Register of territorial identification, addresses and real estates (RÚIAN)
Register of territorial identification, addresses and real estates (RÚIAN) is a part of the basic register system of public administration from the half of 2012. The administrator of register of territorial identification, which is a public list according to the Act of basic registert, is The Czech Office for Surveying, Mapping and Cadastre (ČÚZK). RÚIAN publishes the obligatory data on territorial identification and on addresses for needs of public administration. The ČÚZK built the Information system of territorial identification (ISÚI) to keep the data about territorial elements and territorial registration units and through this system and with the Information system of cadastre of real estates (ISKN) is the data  processed to RÚIAN.

Biography

Jiří Formánek has long been involved in the issue of territorial identification in the Czech Republic. He actively participated in the construction and production operation of the register of territorial identification, addresses and real estate (RÚIAN), one of the four basic registers of public administration in the Czech Republic.

Since 2010, Jiří Formánek has been the head of the RÚIAN Administration Department, which is responsible for developing the basic register, providing data and its quality. He is currently working primarily on extending the RÚIAN data content to target territorial elements and improving the RÚIAN data fund as an administrative source for the Census 2021.

Ing. Jaroslav Nechyba
Czech Standardization Agency, BIM Strategy department director

Abstract

Czech governmental BIM strategy
The Czech government approved in September 2017 national BIM strategy with a mandatory milestone for the public procurers at 2022. The introduction of the basics of national “top to bottom” BIM strategy implemented with the Ministry of Industry and Trade for the construction market to meet successfully that milestone. Part of the presentation will be dedicated to our wide cooperation with other partners on Czech governmental platform (digital building permits, Digital Technical Maps) and on the European level as well.

Biography

Since 1990, I have devoted all my professional carrier to building and developing a company that I co-owned until 2017. We really started from scratch to the present day, when the company is a renowned brand in the area of consulting, development and implementation systems for the construction industry. As a Vice-Chairman of the Board of Czech BIM Council, I was involved in the preparation of expert documents for “BIM Strategy Implementation in the Czech Republic”, prepared by the Ministry of Industry and Trade. And because the overall output of this activity made sense to me and drew a very interesting opportunity, I agreed with the Ministry on a position that allows me to participate fully from January 2018 in implementing this Strategy. I have many years of experience in the field of analysis and implementation of new processes, information systems, database systems and generally with change management. I’m basically doing BIM whole my professional life, but it wasn’t just called like that before.
