  1. GIS helps designers make better decisions. This is why Vectorworks, Inc., a global design and BIM software provider and its partner Esri, the global leader in location intelligence, are bringing Esri’s ArcGIS Online services to AEC and landscape professionals, as well as urban planners and urban designers. The solution offers better and quicker access to GIS imagery, data and geometry and the latest technology available in Vectorworks 2020 software, including Vectorworks Architect, Landmark and Designer. “The process of integrating GIS information with a BIM model became tremendously easier with the ability to incorporate data from Esri ArcGIS Online services early in the design process. Further, the resulting georeferenced files make it easy to collaborate,” said Vectorworks Landscape Product Marketing Manager Eric Gilbey, PLA, ASLA. “A broad range of AEC and landscape professionals will benefit from the new integration including those planning with architecture firms or delivering government, master planning or campus planning projects. They’ll notice a much more seamless and direct GIS workflow that is a huge time saver.” With this new solution, designers can utilize access to online mapping and aerial images. This access comes by way of two new Vectorworks tools named Geoimage and Geolocate. With proper geographic coordinates and projection in the Vectorworks file, designers can accurately geolocate their project by simply entering an address. And with a paid ArcGIS Online services plan, customers can access more maps and other imagery directly in Vectorworks. “I love how Vectorworks often takes a user request to the next level, digging deep into the nature of the request and planning far ahead to meet user needs into the future,” said Anna Arbetter, licensed landscape architect at Futurity, Inc. “As an Esri user, the similarity to the ArcGIS environment makes Vectorworks even more of an asset for us. We use GIS extensively and incorporate it into every project. The streaming imagery service allows us to instantly assess whether our project data has shown up in the right location. The new method for setting the project location at 0,0 means we can use a standardized template that includes sheet viewports without the need to adjust viewports to each particular project location.” Learn more about the new solutions from Vectorworks by visiting the Vectorworks 2020 website.

  6. Collaboration will expand design solutions in Scotland On March 9, 2017, the Scottish Government announced that as part of its digital technology strategy, BIM should be considered for the design, construction and operation of all public buildings and infrastructure. In turn, this is increasing the demand for 2D/3D/BIM design software in the Scottish market. Therefore, along with the release of Vectorworks 2020, Vectorworks is delighted to announce a new partnership with Scottish software and support specialist CMYK Digital Solutions. “With the existing demand and growing interest in design solutions incorporating BIM capability, it’s a meaningful development to add CMYK Digital Solutions to our network of partners across the UK,” said Vectorworks UK & Ireland Sales Director Adrian Slatter. “Together with ever increasing software capability as evidenced by the release of Vectorworks 2020, this will further strengthen the ongoing growth of Vectorworks in this market. Scotland represents a significant part of the Vectorworks business and this move will help further accelerate the growth we have seen across the UK and Ireland in recent years.” CMYK Service Operations Director David Crosby explained that they have been keen to better serve their existing and prospective architectural clients by extending their existing software portfolio. “With the addition of Vectorworks’ intuitive design software, architects, architectural technicians and BIM managers in Scotland will have a better choice of design tools and a supplier committed to helping them make the most of their investment,” said Crosby. “With the government’s ongoing commitment to BIM requirements for public buildings and infrastructure projects in Scotland, we are ideally placed to help customers and prospective customers who need to deliver projects that meet the new standards.” Learn more about the newly launched Vectorworks 2020 at vectorworks.net/2020.
