Here's a look at some of 2013's biggest technology stories focused on BIM.
Among the nearly 10,000 attendees last week at Autodesk University 2013 in Las Vegas, the buzz was all about building information modeling (BIM), evolving technology and what the future may hold. Autodesk unveiled several technologies related to BIM during the annual user conference.

Building Information Modeling offers countless opportunities to improve efficiency in building construction. By understanding BIM concepts and applications, geospatial professionals can open new avenues for growth.
Autodesk’s newest software promises to make work easier and more accurate in the field. The automatic point creation program allows information to be transferred to a robotic total station for layout, providing contractors laser-guided accuracy for the placement and verification of building elements on their tablets.
Autodesk's newest release is "data that is visualized," according to Paul McRoberts.
I think we can all agree that reading the fine print in professional services agreements isn’t much fun, especially when you’d rather be surveying a site or scanning a building or building a BIM model. But I am learning everyday that these are tasks you have to do anyway.
