GIS2BIM Node Index

Package published by Maarten Vroegindeweij

Set of nodes to load 2D and 3D raster and vector GIS-data from various sources into Revit.

  • WMS: Web Map Service: rasterdata as aerialphotos, maps.
  • WMTS/TMS: Web Map Tile Service: rasterdata downloaded as tiles and after then combined and import in a view.
  • WFS: Web Future Service: vectordata from a geoxml/geoJSON converted to curves, detail lines and filled regions.
  • POINTCLOUD: LASZip can be used to filter, crop and modify pointclouds and converts them into points in Dynamo.
  • NETHERLANDS Quite some nodes to load GIS-data for the Netherlands such as kadaster, AHN, BAG, BGT, PDOK
  • HAWAI Geoserviceslibrary for Cadastre
  • SOUTH AFRICA Geoserviceslibrary for Cadastre
  • BELGIUM Geoserviceslibrary for Cadastre and aerialphotos
  • ARCGIS First approach to load data from ARCGIS-services via the REST API
  • GOOGLE Geocoding with the Google API and download OSM-data.
  • GOOGLE EARTH Import Google Earth aerialphoto in Revit
  • GEF Import GEF-files for modelling of the subsoil with data from CPT-files
  • CRS Library with all Coordinate Reference Systems from EPSG and tools to transform coordinates from one CRS to another
