This upcoming week is COFES 2006 (Congress On the Future of Engineering Software), in Arizona. It’s the first one since the release of Google Earth, and AECnews.com‘s Randall S. Newton writes he will be looking at how conference attendees are adapting. The next buzzword for AEC (Architecture, Engineering and Construction) pros, according to Randall is “location-based simulation”, because Google Earth now makes it so easy to share 3D work.
But that’s just scratching the surface of Randall’s article. There is far more there worth reading.
