Trying to visualize GIS & BIM information on the web: a solution using Leaflet and Cesium

While GIS is a term whose use has now been consolidated for years now, BIM is a term whose use is increasingly widespread over the past few years. The both deal with geo-localized "objects", so the ongoing studies for a common point of the GIS and BIM different views of the same object is somewhat unavoidable. A first attempt at integration information belonging from these two worlds is presently under way in the framework of EU funded DIMMER project. This project integrates BIM, district level 3D models with near-real time data from sensors and user feedback in order to analyze and correlate buildings utilization, and to provide information about energy-related behaviors to users and other stakeholders. From the point of view of technology, the project uses open source technologies such as Java, Leaflet and Cesium, as far as GIS is concerned: here you're an architectural schema. The web application integrated GIS data read directly from a POSTGIS data base, with data flows from BIM services, near-real time data from sensors distributed over the territory under examination, and on line processed indexes/calculations. The present version of the project makes it possible to consult sensor information in near-real time, as well as the other processed calculations/indexes, through a web dashboard that includes as primary elements both a 2D map (based on Leaflet), as well as a 3D map (based on CesiumJS).

Real-time large format maps for passenger information on railway disruptions

Focusing on a clearer and more visible passenger information, Swiss Federal Railways SBB modernized the general displays in the biggest Swiss railway stations. The former mechanical palette displays were replaced by LED screens of up to 5 meters width. In case of severe traffic disruptions these monitors are used for providing the passenger with general information. Additionally, a huge (perhaps the biggest) map based on OpenLayers 3 is shown on the monitor enabling the passenger to get a fast overview of the situation. The key component of the service-based architecture is the geographical content management system Cartaro. It is used by the employees in the SBB operation centers for composing and editing the information to display. Among issues like performance, reliability and availability a major challenge for the system was the development of tools for the fast and simple creation of a clear and appealing map. The software automatically generates a map based on real-time timetable information, identifies the affected stations and highlights the interrupted route using a routing-based approach. A set of integrated spatial editing tools enables the user to e.g. modify route geometries at different generalization levels and to align map labels.
