This course will let you utilise the Data residing in BIM Software such as Revit and Navisworks.    I love data and I know in an age of Big Data we will all be moving toward a more Data driven society.  The course aims to give you a starting point for the accessing the data within BIM and then being able to handle the data. 
Basic concepts of SQL, which is one of the commonly used Database languages will be explained and examples of how to execute some of the key SQL commands.  There is no requirement for Programming knowledge however some basic understanding on coding will help.
Examples of how the data can be brought into Microsoft Power BI will also be demonstrated for the purposes of visualisation.
Ultimately this course is to help build you up your ability to extract and manage data for further data analysis.
