Publication of the collection Emerging topics in 3D GIS

A special issue we organised in Transactions in GIS

Participation at the 3D GeoInfo 2020 conference

3D GeoInfo is a key conference in the 3D GIS community

New paper: Exploration of open data in Southeast Asia to generate 3D building models

This article investigates the current status of generating 3D building models across 11 countries in Southeast Asia from publicly available data, primarily volunteered geoinformation (OpenStreetMap)

New paper: Visualising detailed CityGML and ADE at the building scale

There is an increasing activity in developing workflows and implementations to convert BIM data into CityGML. However, there are still not many platforms that are suitable to view and interact with the detailed information stored as a result of such conversions, especially if an Application Domain Extension (ADE) is involved to support additional information

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

Special issue in Transactions in GIS on 3D city modelling and BIM

The special issue has been published in February 2021. Please see the related blog post. Thanks to all the authors for submitting their contributions.

3D GeoInfo 2019 conference in Singapore

3D GeoInfo is the flagship conference of the international 3D city modelling community, with the 2018 edition held in Delft. This year we are quite fortunate to be able to host it in Singapore, together with the Singapore Land Authority, in the last week of September.
