Live View of Team Projects on BIMStorm
This is a "live" map of projects being worked on and submitted to this BIMStorm. As teams submit project for review they will show up on this map. There are open APIs to allow developers to extend the functionality. Sign up for BIMStorm to create your own project and get access to all the data. The map is a new open source prototype project of the buildingSMARTalliance and uses GeoJSON, Leaflet and other technologies to merge BIM, GIS and FM data.
Follow Along on the Trello Bulletin Board
Trello is being used to organize the BIMStorm with links, messages, and news.
It is open for public viewing.
Three Open Source Projects Initiated by BIMStorm:
Open Source prototype project initiated by BIMStorm and the buildingSMARTalliance. The prototype Cloud Server uses the free open source web2py framework with a few simple pages of code to import the 2 sample file formats (COBie + USACE Workbook) and to generate the RESTful web service APIs. More >>
The UI of this App is kept simple with minimum formatting. The priority is given the reading, updating, adding, and deleting of assets (component data) to demonstrate the functioning of the APIs in BIM-cloud.com. The App currently makes the web service requests for every page it loads and displays the API requests on the lower right of the page. Depending on the use case for front end apps, they could use AngularJS or other frameworks to improve the efficiency of data requests. More >>
Open Source prototype project initiated by BIMStorm and the buildingSMARTalliance. Leaflet BIMplan creates building plan overlays from GeoJSON web services. This is a prototype viewer that runs best on Chrome browsers. Other browsers work, but the equipment level plans do not render images yet. More >>
