BIMStorm Workshop #2 landed temporary healthcare facilities at the Robert B. Green Campus - University Health System in San Antonio and then moved them to the Armed Forces Retirement Home in Washington, DC.
Very interesting that they can be shipped to site and quickly used. Even more interesting potential to move them where needed as spikes in COVID occur around the country or world. We would like to make this a exercise in the BIMStorm.
Planning scenario from 2007 that is relevant today
This was an early participation by BIMStorm to connect BIM, GIS, Sensors, and other data with many participants using Open Geospatial Consortium Open Web Services. One of the first demonstrations of connecting BIM and GIS in real-time.
