IJGI | Free Full-Text | An Integrated BIM–GIS Method for Planning of Water Distribution System

An important function of a water distribution system (WDS) is to supply drinking water to each demand point using a pipe network that has minimal impact on the surroundings. To produce a reliable WDS, planning usually requires a significant amount of geo-spatial information. Current planning practices for pipeline systems, which gather geographic information based on […]
