BIM allows engineers and contractors to leverage existing GIS information, explore innovative designs and to test alternatives and simulate real-world performance, developing a better understanding of various stages of the project, all while keeping a geospatial context. Urban utility infrastructure, retrofitting and replacement involves a mix of engineering design and geospatial activities that involve short, medium and long duration transactions and that support the planning-design-construction and operations cycle both above and below the ground.
The integration of building information modeling (BIM) and geographic information system (GIS) in construction management is a new and fast developing trend in recent years, from research to industrial practice. BIM has advantages on rich geometric and semantic information through the building life cycle, while GIS is a broad field covering geovisualization-based decision making and geospatial modeling. . BIM-GIS integration is to integrate the strong parts of both BIM and GIS for building and city modeling.
Applications BIM-GIS integration reveals that current applications have three primary advantages. First, data and information with multiple spatial scales are integrated to address the problems related to both construction components and built environment even urban environment. This is also a starting point of using BIM-GIS integration. Second, the primary function of BIM has been applied that provides complete and detailed geometry and material information of building components. Finally, visualization-based analysis improves the efficiency and performance of construction management in AEC projects.

GIS has become extremely useful in understanding the bigger picture of the public health. While traditional uses of GIS in public health are continuing, but with them new uses of GIS are also growing.
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and the accompanying methods and data have been adopted increasingly in diverse health-related domains and national settings with the goal of improved response to public health problems. The use of geospatial technologies and spatiotemporal epidemiological tools is increasing around the world as a means to understand the dynamics of infectious disease transmission and non-communicable disease distribution.
GIS visualizes health data over time to assist with making policy decisions, setting goals, and evaluating outcomes by linking health data with socio-demographic, environmental, administrative, and healthcare and services infrastructure. Health care organizations can use GIS to improve management practices. Linking the physical location and condition of equipment or supplies in a large facility or distributed medical campus is a powerful new management tool.
Some of the latest applications of GIS in public health are:
- Public Health Infrastructure Mapping
- Research Tools & Planning
- Spatial Decision Support System
- Identification of Risk Location
- Emergency Response Systems
- Managing the emergency time
Use of GIS in Public Health is an application area still in its infant stage.

Remote sensing is the art and science of making measurements of the earth using sensors on airplanes or satellites. These sensors collect data in the form of images and provide specialized capabilities for manipulating, analyzing, and visualizing those images. Remote sensed imagery is integrated within a GIS.
Remote Sensing Mediums:
- Black & White or “Panchromatic”
- Sensitive to visible light
- True Color
- Similar to color film
- Sensitive to infrared frequencies that can’t be seen by humans
- Developed by military for identifying tanks painted with camouflage
- Good for evaluating the conditions of vegetation
- Good for evaluating moisture in the soil
- False-color Adjusted
- When frequencies of received data are shifted to allow or enhanced human viewing
- When more than a single ‘band’ of energy is captured
- color is multi-spectral (3 bands)
- Some satellites can have 7 or even more ‘bands’ of sensitivity
Applications of using Remote Sensing:
- Laser & Radar altimeters on satellites have provided a wide range of data. By measuring the bulges of water, they map features on the seafloor to a resolution of a mile or so. By measuring the height and wavelength of ocean waves, the altimeters measure wind speeds and direction, and surface ocean currents and directions.
- Conventional radar is mostly associated with aerial traffic control, early warning, and certain large scale meteorological data.
- Doppler radar is used by local law enforcements’ monitoring of speed limits and in enhanced meteorological collection such as wind speed and direction within weather systems in addition to precipitation location and intensity.
- Ultrasound (acoustic) and radar tide gauges measure sea level, tides and wave direction in coastal and offshore tide gauges.
- Light Detection & Ranging (LIDAR) is well known in examples of weapon ranging, laser illuminated homing of projectiles. LIDAR is used to detect and measure the concentration of various chemicals in the atmosphere, while airborne LIDAR can be used to measure heights of objects and features on the ground more accurately than with radar technology. Vegetation remote sensing is a principal application of LIDAR.
- Radiometers and photometersare the most common instrument in use, collecting reflected and emitted radiation in a wide range of frequencies. The most common are visible and infrared sensors, followed by microwave, gamma ray and rarely, ultraviolet.
- Stereographic pairs of aerial photographs have often been used to make topographic maps by imagery and terrain analysts in traffic-ability and highway departments for potential routes, in addition to modeling terrestrial habitat features.
