Precinct Information Modelling (PIM) describes the process of creating a virtual 3D model at precinct scale, defined as a special region in built environment. PIM contains all the information pertinent the given precinct held in different data type and supports the process of management and analysis.

This report presents a way of structuring and visualising geospatial data and their corresponding semantics and metadata in a Precinct Information Model (PIM). The datasets obtained from UNSW Estate Management (EM) are used in this development. The study is completed through several steps involving pre-processing and storage of data, along with web-based visualisation.

The work undertaken in the CRCLCL PIM Project (RP2011) was presented at an Industry Symposium on 15 September 2017. The aim was to demonstrate how Precinct Information Modelling (PIM), based on an open information exchange standard, can enable more effective urban planning, design and management at a precinct scale. The objectives of the event were:

Planning, building, and occupying a precinct, involves many stakeholders over significant periods of time. The development and evolution of the precinct is determined through decisions made by these stakeholders, jointly or singly, in response to perceived existing problems, or to satisfy anticipated future needs. The stakeholders are therefore all participating...

This report sets out the role to be played by the PIM project in the planned UHI project work. It summarises the goals and organisation of that work and then outlines the contribution to be made by PIM. Importantly, while the PIM project contribution to the ETWW project has come after the initial work is complete, there is an opportunity to tightly integrate a PIM-based solution into the workflow of the UHI project.

This technical investigation canvases a range issues concerned with the development of a PIM Object Library, specifically to address carbon management, though the principles could be applied within a broader context. It deals with:

This technical investigation presents the precinct information (PIM) data schema. The schema is an extension of the current IFC data schema that is used widely for building works. Apart from buildings, precincts also contain infrastructure objects such as roads, railways, bridges, tunnels, and outdoor civic spaces that contribute to the overall carbon impact and therefore need to be modelled.

This technical investigation reports on the common way state planning departments and local governments proscribe development of private and public land.
The context for this is to develop a digital representation of the system, to support for example the tools emerging that examine the performance of scenarios for development (such as the Tonsley Master Plan, with its zonal development plan). The NSW system is examined as a basis for implementing a planning system in detail:
