Dynasty Group, Inc. offers support services for Building Information
Modeling (BIM) and Geographic Information System (GIS) developments.
Information is power. BIM and GIS systems bear essential information to
make sound decisions. Accurate information comes from reliable data and
Data collection is one of the most important tasks in developing BIM
and/or GIS systems. The data usually includes spatial data and attribute
data. Spatial data is typically collected with various tools of measurement,
i.e., tape, GPS, total station, 3D laser scanner, hand-held scanner and
laser tracker. Dimensional control (control surveying) method is critical to
registering all measurements into one uniform coordinate system. For
some projects, large data set is often segmented into smaller sets in order
for a computer system to process. Dimensional control provides the
spatial relationship among the segmented data sets. Moreover,
dimensional control also provides the means to geo-reference the project
to any established grid, such as latitude and longitude, state plane
coordinate system and sectionalized land system.
Attribute data is the "intelligence" of BIM/GIS systems. By associating
attribute data, such as cost, service life, and current condition of building
components to 2D/3D objects, the "smart" model becomes valuable
information to be used in facility management, planning and construction.
Attribute data is collected through record research, interviewing with
experienced personnel and direct observation. After being collected,
attribute data needs to be reduced, analyzed and organized before it can
be used to populate databases and be associated with spatial objects.
The right tools can only be effective in the capable hands. The engineers,
surveyors and technical staff at Dynasty Group are experienced in
collecting and manipulating data and generating useful information
through many techniques to support the development of fully functional
BIM and GIS systems.
