Currently, the rapid development of cities and the rapid increase in urban populations have led to a sharp increase in urban components, making precise urban component management, query efficiency, and operational visualization urgent problems to be solved. In this paper, an in-depth study is carried out, pointing out that the current two-dimensional map or component management method based on a real-life three-dimensional city has defects, including query difficulty, fuzzy management, and inefficiency, and it is impossible to accurately and efficiently manage urban components. Then, this paper uses a combination of GIS technology and BIM technology as the starting point. On one hand, this combined technology is based on the high efficiency of the underlying data organization of the GeoSOT grid code and the accuracy of real geographic location expression; on the other hand, based on the integrity of the building information representation and the accuracy of the relative position of internal components of BIM, a precise urban component management method based on GeoSOT grid code and BIM is proposed. Finally, based on this method, a real-time 3D Earth visualization platform is established by using the Cesium platform. Taking the fire hydrant component management of the commercial Guanlan Street in Baiyin City, Gansu Province, China as an example, the precise management of the components in this area is realized, which proves that the method can achieve precise urban component management.
