GIS integrated 3D modelling is crucial for the city planning and design processes because urban modelling is a tool used in virtual environments, and provides convenience to work. Although, the creation and display of 3D city models for large regions is difficult it is vital for planning and designing safer cities, as well as public places....

The World Trade Center attack of 9/11/01 and the response brought major attention to GIS as a valuable tool for supporting emergency management and response. That attention led to the allocation of considerable resources to the enhancement of GIS. This paper is intended to provide a look back at the events prior to and immediately following the...

This article aims to compare the geo-graphic (spatial) objects in 2D (planar objects) proposed by CON.G.O.O. and ISO standards, and the ability of a number of GIS software to handle them. The results achieved so far showed that the actual technical possibilities are not always sufficient to support the complex spatial objects proposed by CON.G.O.O.

This paper introduces the concept of a space-scale partition, which we term the space-scale cube – analogous with the space-time cube (first introduced by Hägerstrand, 1970). We take the view of '"map generalization is extrusion of 2D data into the third dimension" (as introduced by Vermeij et al., 2003). An axiomatic approach formalizes the...

3D cadastre is necessary to display and manage complex spatial relationships. To support a full 3D cadastral implementation, object boundary definitions, object topologies and their legal representations will have to be further defined. A hybrid approach combining 2D and 3D using GIS represents a feasible, economical and extensible approach....

The possibilities offered in these modern times, regarding the accessibility to information, electronic communication, IT technology, safety standards, acceptable economic elements and most importantly the good ideas are the moving forces that are carrying the society to a new advanced level. In this direction, also, tends the global idea...

Geometric part of the Unified Hungarian Land Registry (Cadastral maps) has been operating in standardized environment since 1996. MSZ 7772-1 Standard on Digital Base Map (developed by Institute of Geodesy Cartography and Remote Sensing, FÖMI) — based on the pre ISO and CEN standards on Geographic Information — defines a 3D relational database...

Property rights have always been shown in 2D with the surface parcel being the fundamental representation of ownership. Complex 3D situations, interlocking properties, multi-levelled train station, underground rock caverns are all immediate but unresolved challenges for us in Singapore. Volumetric parcels such as strata subdivision, subterranean...

The use of geo-information is changing by the advent of new mobile devices, such as tablet-pc's that harness a lot of computing power. This type of information is more and more applied in mainstream digital consumer products, in a net-centric environment (i.e. dissemination takes place via the Internet) and the advances in mobile hardware also...

The relational data model is now more than 40 years old. It's good for very diferent scenarios and can handle certain types of data very well. But it isn't perfect. An increasing number of non-relational systems are being worked on, collectively called the 'NoSQL movement'. NoSQL is an umbrella term for a loosely defined class of non-relational...

The potential for volunteer groups to contribute geographic data to National Mapping Agencies has been widely recognised. Several investigations have been done to determine the geometric accuracy of this data for the purposes of national mapping. Beyond accuracy, from a production perspective National Mapping Agencies will also be interested in...

Three-dimensional maps are deemed better for navigation purposes as they offer a larger number and more realistic navigation cues than two-dimensional maps. Improvements in two key technologies have opened the doors towards utilization of 3D maps for car navigation devices. Advances in data acquisition technologies and data processing methods...

Nederland heeft de ambitie om het aantal dodelijke en ernstige ongevallen met 25% te reduceren. De ontwikkeling van ongevallenvoorspellingsmodellen (OVM’s) kan hier een bijdrage aan leveren. Op basis van de ontwikkeling van OVM’s kunnen allereerst de effecten van het wegontwerp op de verkeersveiligheid beter worden ingeschat dan in de huidige...

We do live in interesting times. Social, political and financial turmoil, peak oil and nuclear accidents all contribute to the realisation that perhaps things need to change in our energy system. Providing the right type of energy at the right place at the right time is of course the answer. As the potential yields of renewable energy sources...

Depth-contours are an essential part of any hydrographic chart—a map of a waterbody intended for safe ship navigation. Traditionally these were manually drawn by skilled hydrographers from a limited set of surveyed depth measurements. Nowadays this process of map making is shifted towards the digital domain, not in the last place because of the...

Where Level of Detail (LoD) allow City Geography Markup Language (CityGML) models to be shared over different application domains, only one LoD defines building interiors. As there are potentially numerous applications with a need for building interiors (but not with all the details as defined in LoD4), in order to attain a larger applicability...
