Thursday September 14th at 11:30 at CNM's Advanced Technology Center room 108.

This month’s feature presentation is:


VDCOMaps was created to address two concerns:  

1) What to do with their existing libraries of 2D drawings as they transition from CAD to BIM,

2) How to deal with unforeseen reluctance by the Facilities staff to utilize BIMs for daily operation.

VDCOMaps easy to use web-based tool, increases accuracy, visibility and availability of space data by providing selective secure access to data, reports and floor plans to stakeholders within your organization.

You can have the ability to control your own data import and export easily as this too is customizable, practical and simplistic for all.  Ideal for entry level data management!
