International Journal of 3-D Information Modeling (IJ3DIM) Volume 3, Issue 4

Book Description

The International Journal of 3-D Information Modeling (IJ3DIM) focuses on three research domains, Building Information Modeling, 3D GIS, and integration of 3D information in the Urban Built Environment. IJ3DIM facilitates the exchange of current scientific information, as well as sharing of state-of-the art technological developments within the AEC industry. The journal provides a forum for information dissemination between academics and academics/professionals associated with City Planning and Management, Infrastructure Management, all disciplines of Geosciences, Building and Civil engineering, Disaster management, Logistics, Environmental Planning and Conservation, Computer Graphics, Data Management, Gaming, and so forth. In addition to academics, the primary audience of the journal also includes engineers, architects, contractors, consultants, and facility managers. IJ3DIM publishes original research articles, case studies, reviews and best practices, and applications, including mathematical models and algorithms.

This issue contains the following articles:

  • Building Information Modelling in Cameroon: Overcoming Existing Challenges
  • Mitigating the Risks of Offsite Manufacturing through the Application of BIM
  • Sum of the Parts: Leveraging BIM to Achieve Effective Delivery of Mass Customised Housing
  • Using Building Information Modeling to Evaluate the Costs and Benefits of Adopting Sustainable Universal Houses in Canada
