How to Add BIM in SuperMap GIS

22 Jan,2019

In recent years, BIM-GIS Integration Technologies has become a hotspot for urban planning and construction. The value of BIM could be extended by combining with GIS. In this article, how to add BIM in SuperMap GIS will be shared.

What is BIM?

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of a facility.

What is GIS?

Geographic Information System (GIS) is a system designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present spatial or geographic data.

How to combine BIM with GIS in SuperMap?

BIM provides a rich 3D geometric information and semantic information about indoor spaces, which can be employed by GIS to support the whole life of construction project.

Application of adding BIM in SuperMap GIS


SuperMap provides the GIS function of Highlighting-Selected, location, query, statistics and so on based on BIM data.

Spatial Analysis

SuperMap provides the GIS Spatial Analysis function of 3D measurement, 3D GPU analysis and 3D network analysis based on BIM data.

Advantage of adding BIM in SuperMap GIS

Supports multiple data & Easy to import BIM data

BIM can be integrated with multiple spatial data like oblique photogrammetry, terrain, 3D pipe lines, etc. SuperMap makes it easy to manage the BIM data.

High performance 3D loading and visualization

With LOD technology, Large-scale BIM can be integrated with SuperMap effectively, and achieved high performance 3D loading and visualization on SuperMap GIS software platform.
