Building information modeling is a concept focused on the development of a computable model for a building project. Many types of software applications can contribute to the creation of a BIM for a project. Some of these applications support more comprehensive authoring of multi-attribute information regarding buildings and building components, while other may only support the creation of geometry. The following links point to various software application categories that can be used to contribute to developing a BIM.
