3D GeoInfo 2019 in Singapore: a success. Thanks everyone!

We are very pleased to have had this year’s 3D GeoInfo hosted in Singapore. The 14th edition of the conference, co-organised by the National University of Singapore and the Singapore Land Authority, was part of a broader event named 3D Singapore, which comprised also three pre-conference workshops: 2nd BIM/GIS Integration Workshop, Point Clouds Training, and Big Data and Urban Analytics Workshop.

Update on the GeoBIM benchmark

An investigation into the implementation state of open standards in software is currently ongoing through the ISPRS/EuroSDR ‘GeoBIM benchmark 2019’ initiative

Current trends, challenges, and gaps of contemporary 3D cadastre

A significant number of studies has been carried out to establish 3D cadastre solutions to improve the registration of multi-level property.

Paper on quality of BIM-GIS conversion

Much work has been done on quality of geoinformation and interoperability between BIM and GIS. However, the intersection of the two - quality control of the conversion between BIM and GIS - remains uncharted.

Towards generating LoD2 models without aerial surveys using machine learning

The paper deals with inferring the type of roof from LOD1 models, potentially contributing to a broader context of a workflow of generating LoD2 models bypassing traditional approaches.
