Special Issue Information
Amid growing interest in the smart construction and operation of the built environment in the construction industry, the roles of GIS and BIM are also becoming increasingly important. GIS (geographical information system) provides spatial location and geospatial information of the city and/or infrastructure systems while BIM (building information modeling) provides information of an individual building structure and facility on a relatively small and detailed scale.
Although GIS and BIM are currently operating on separate platforms, there is much active platform-related research that has attempted to link GIS and BIM during construction operations. Merging GIS and BIM data provides a geospatial element that can be used in the design, construction, and operation of various built environments. Seamless project handover (i.e., sharing of data and information between platforms) between BIM design processes and GIS technologies can bring about improvement in the data managing capacity of smart construction and operation of the built environment. In this regard, this Special Issue invites you to submit original research papers on GIS–BIM connected platforms and services, collaboration between GIS and BIM, and related topics. The papers about the non-traditional use of BIM or GIS through the extended features and/or the connection with other information technology are also welcome. Hence, topics may include but are not limited to the following:
- Integration of GIS and BIM
- Application of GIS data towards BIM or vice versa
- Advancing processes of GIS and BIM for interoperability
- BIM or GIS data format for interoperability
- Platform development of GIS and BIM
- BIM or GIS connected with other information technology
- Extended features of BIM or GIS

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2300 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
