Resolution

Building information modeling (BIM) is a process involving the generation and management of digital representations of physical and functional characteristics of places. Building information models (BIMs) are files (often but not always in proprietary formats and containing proprietary data) which can be exchanged or networked to support decision-making about a place. Current BIM software is used by individuals, businesses and government agencies who plan, design, construct, operate and maintain diverse physical infrastructures, such as water, wastewater, electricity, gas, refuse and communication utilities, roads, bridges and ports, houses, apartments, schools and shops, offices, factories, warehouses and prisons.

 

Pelco has partnered with AutoDesk to develop BIM / Revit files for its camera product lines.  These are available on the AutoDesk Seek: http://seek.autodesk.com/manufacturer/PELCO+by+Schneider+Electric
