GIS-BIM interoperability

ISO/TC 59/SC 13/JWG 14 (joint working group between ISO/TC 59/SC 13 and ISO/TC 211) has developed a technical report on GIS-BIM interoperability, ISO/TR 23262 GIS (geospatial) / BIM interoperability. The report has just been published, see ISO - ISO/TR 23262:2021 - GIS (geospatial) / BIM interoperability
The final clause in the report consists of the following three suggestions for further work:

1.    Linking abstract concepts in BIM and GIS standards 
2.    Geospatial and BIM dictionary 
3.    Information exchange guidelines between BIM and GIS

In addition to the work between ISO/TC 59 SC 13 and ISO/TC 211 we have recognized that there is a similar report produced by BuildingSMART and OGC, “Built environment data standards and their integration: an analysis of IFC, CityGML and LandInfra”, focusing on issues that are closely related to the suggestions for further work by JWG 14.  

To avoid duplication, we would like to align our further work with buildingSMART International (bSI) and Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), and a meeting will take place between bSI, OGC, ISO/TC 59/SC 13 and ISO/TC 211 June 1st . 

JWG 14 is prepared to initiate a New Work Item Proposal on suggestion 2, Geospatial and BIM dictionary given that it aligns with the efforts of bSI and OGC.
