Reference study on software support for open standards of city and building models

This benchmark investigated the available technical solutions to support research and activities related to GeoBIM, through the use of the open standards IFC (by buildingSMART) and CityGML (by OGC):


1. What is the support for IFC within BIM (and other) software?

2. What options for geo-referencing BIM data are available?

3. What is the support for CityGML within GIS (and other) tools?

4. What options for conversion (IFC↔CityGML) are available?


The final Results of the project can be accessed at the presentations&publications page of this website, as well as all the resulting datasets.
