Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an emerging technology providing an innovative process for generating and managing high-dimensional virtual representations of physical and functional characteristics of critical infrastructure. In recent years, BIM has attracted a great deal of interests from Geographic Information System (GIS) communities, due to the inherited benefits that can be synergistically gained by integrating two spatial modeling systems. However, there are severe scientific and technical barriers, which hinders a cohesive integration of BIM and GIS for fully conducting high-dimensional and multi-scale spatial data modeling, semantic analytics and visualization. This Special Issues aims to advance our understanding of how spatial data science and engineering can be applied to BIM for improving efficiency and accuracy of data processing, integration and operation. We welcome submissions that utilize BIM in the framework of GIS or vice versa, or that propose a mid-way integration of the two with methodological, theoretical, and practical innovations. Each paper should also include a short section on the future prospects for BIM/GIS integration. This Special Issue seeks to describe and discuss the following topics, but is not limited to them:
- Data model for BIM and GIS integration
- Level of Detail/Development Specification for BIM and GIS integration
- Spatial data analytics for BIM/GIS/BIM and GIS integration
- 3D GIS for BIM or BIM for 3D GIS
- As-built BIM reconstruction
- Heritage for BIM/GIS/BIM and GIS integration
- Infrastructure for BIM/GIS/BIM and GIS integration
- Smart city for BIM/GIS/BIM and GIS integration
- Visualization for BIM/GIS/BIM and GIS integration
- Simulation of building characteristics using BIM/GIS/BIM and GIS integration
- Case studies of BIM/GIS/BIM and GIS integration
- Comparision of theoretical and practical BIM/GIS integration
- Cloudsourced data generation and maintenance
- Open sources
- The n-dimension of BIM and GIS

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
