BIM Loket

BIM Loket (The Dutch BIM Gateway) is the knowledge platform and the contact point for open BIM standards in the Netherlands. In BIM Loket, the many separate open BIM standard organisations work together. They are doing this because they strongly believe that open BIM standards are of vital importance of the wholesale implementation of BIM in the Dutch Building Sector. BIM Loket is making sure that open BIM standards are integrated into this widespread implementation, on both a national and international level.

Dutch Building Information Council (BIR)

The Dutch Building Information Council consist of representatives of Public clients, Contractors, HVAC, Engineers, Architects and Product Manufacturers. The long time goal of the Dutch Building Information Council is the strengthening of the quality, continuity and the (international) competitiveness of the Dutch Building Industry. A joined effort of the different sectors of the Building Industry on introduction of BIM will serve as a flywheel for improvement of the Building sector. BIM will lead to better quality, more efficiency, cheaper, faster and more sustainability. Thus it will lead that working in the Building Industry will be more fun and to a more aware use of resources and the delivery of bigger social added value.

OGC

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) is an international industry consortium of 426 companies, government agencies and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available interface standards. OGC® Standards support interoperable solutions that "geo-enable" the Web, wireless and location-based services and mainstream IT. The standards empower technology developers to make complex spatial information and services accessible and useful with all kinds of applications.

Co-Organizers

VU Amsterdam

The Spatial Information Laboratory (SPINlab) is the centre for research and education in Geo-Information Science at VU University Amsterdam. The mission of the SPINLab is to develop an internationally recognised research and education portfolio in the areas of Geo-Information Science and Technology. The lab is part of the department of Spatial Economics and is chaired by Prof.dr. Henk J. Scholten. The SPINlab is part of the Department of Spatial Economics, a world renowned institute in the domains of Spatial, Transport and Environmental Economics. The SPINlab applies a wide range of innovative spatial analysis methods and techniques to societally relevant issues such as spatial planning; cultural heritage management; adaptation and mitigation to climate change; emergency and risk management; and location valuation. In our research we aim to transform spatial data into information that helps decision makers in preparing, developing and evaluating alternatives. The lab is active in research projects in relation to: participatory planning; environmental impact assessment; multi-criteria evaluation and optimization; and the development and application of geo-ict tools for spatial planning.
