ARK-BIM was designed for managing HBIM projects related to Archaeology and Heritage assets. Actual web and client BIM platform have been designed for Architecture, Engineering & Construction, and they rarely can be adapted to historical peculiarities.
In addition to all BIMData features, ARK-BIM includes plugins like: isolate elements; hotspot model; stratigraphic unit annotation; measurements center, 2D-3D switch and other important functionalities designed for Archaeology and Cultural Heritage.
ARK-BIM is a set of ad-hoc plugins inside the main viewer. The developed functionalities could be suitable for many archaeological sites but not for other contexts. For this reason, ARK-BIM features will be constantly implemented depending on case studies.
ARK-BIM requires a BIMData account for hosting IFC models, then through access and project tokens you can use your models. More info on BIMData.io

ARK-BIM is a research project carried out by Filippo Diara of Politecnico di Torino, DAD department - G4CH Lab . This work was inspired by the guidelines of the International Committee of Architectural Photogrammetry (CIPA), the scientific committee of ICOMOS, concerning Cultural Heritage documentation and preservation through the utilization of open source solutions for the correct data dissemination, idea also adopted by the GAMHer project (PRIN 2015-2020), who supported and shared this thought.
