Digital transformation in the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry requires professionals to use geospatial and design data together. Esri pioneered problem-solving through GIS and is integrating building information modeling (BIM) and location intelligence to drive improvements in the industry. Esri has partnered with Autodesk to put GIS and BIM integration at the center of construction projects for a more sustainable, resilient future. We're bridging the gap between GIS and BIM, delivering real business value to architects, engineers, contractors, and owners. Combining 3D models from Revit and other applications with location intelligence from ArcGIS increases efficiencies and maximizes investments.


GIS and BIM—Collaboration in the cloud

ArcGIS GeoBIM offers a common platform across projects for teams to review BIM models, documents, and issues in a geographic context. ArcGIS GeoBIM is a cloud-to-cloud solution that simplifies how project teams view, manage, and store project information by dynamically linking to the source. Easily connect to and reuse content hosted on Autodesk Construction Cloud in configurable web mapping apps without needing custom, one-off solutions.
