Be Inspired 2012 finalists

Bentley has announced the 60 near finalist projects for the 2012 Be Inspired award, which will be held for the third time in the Netherlands from 5 to November 7, including the symposium and annual conference.

Be inspired

Unlike last year, there is a decrease in projects in the Latin American area that Before it excelled With the theme of plants and cadastreNow there are only two projects from Brazil; of Spain likewise, one appears in the geotechnical area. This is the distribution, which in my opinion is the priority of Bentley efforts in the field of geoengineering; It can be seen how the emerging powers have a great moment and how the GIS for Bentley is just an application to other disciplines since several of the projects have that approach:

  • 40% in United States
  • 24% in Europe
  • 20% in Asia
  • 8% in Oceania
  • 5% in Africa
  • 3% Latin America

Below is the list of projects, in red those that in my opinion will win, although I have used the most attractive image since some of them despite being very innovative, when listening to them you can see that a good course in PowerPoint and creative design would suit them all right. :)
