Nordic INFRA Workshop focusing on LandXML

buildingSMART Nordic and buildingSMART Norway hosted an openINFRA Workshop in Oslo 7th June. The workshop was a followup from the openINFRA Workshop held in Helsinki November 2011

 The workshop was focusing on LandXML as a neutral data format in infrastructural projects. LandXML may not be the final solution for sharing data in infrastructural projects, but buildingSMART Nordic and buildingSMART Norway are interested in getting feedback from representatives in the civil engineering industry if they support LandXML as an interim format for the coming years for sharing data in infrastructural projects.
