    Digital Colabration - Smart Cities - seamless colabration between CAD and GIS software?

     

    I miss the possibillity to import and export IFC files directly into the ArcGIS platform like Desktop/PRO and CityEngine without converting it into Multipatch. This should be seamless between CAD and ArcGIS software. Smart buildings need smart maps.

    Today, it is a way around seeing IFC files in the ArcGIS platform, but this could be solved by implementing a toolbox/menu which easily could view, import and export IFC files with all details a IFC file contains.

     

    IFC is an open international standard for BIM and colabration in the construction industry:
