The past seventy years the number of disasters that occur, man-made and natural, has increased. This problem requires suitable and efficient means to control and respond to emergency situations. Currently, the emergency responders use maps and software that allows for two dimensional visualisations of situations. Meanwhile the development of...

CityGML is a standardized data format used to store the semantic information and geometries of buildings and other object classes of 3D city models. The Level of Detail of current state of the art city models (LoD2) is not sufficient for accurate environmental simulations like noise, the solar potential of windows and other types of analyses. An...

The Open Geospatial Consortium has been developing a wide range of open standards for the field of Geographical Information (GI). One of the standards allows for remote processing; the Web Processing Service (WPS). WPS has not been implemented in many project yet but it is a promising standard which can also be applied outside the field of GI....

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...

This thesis research for the Master of Science programme Geographical Information Management and Applications looks at the possibilities of completing the asset information life cycle at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. Therefor an analysis was made of the current situation, after a literature research was conducted towards the subjects of data...

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...

This short summary helps to grasp the motive behind the research, its objectives and to find out what is presented on the following pages of the report. It offers a condensed, one page recapitulation of its contents and intentions and suggests who might be interested to read it. CONTEXT Map generalisation is a tedious task, requiring skilled...

With laser scanning (including laser altimetry and multi-beam echo sounding), many data points, called point clouds, are measured. The interest in point clouds is increasing. Depending on the laser scanner, the measurement set-up and the technique, the number of points in one dataset can vary from a few hundred points to over a billion points....

This research discusses the conversion of underground utilities datasets into scene graph models for its 3D visualization using the WebGL technology, which is a Javascript interface to access the 3D graphics hardware. This conversion requires to reconstruct the volumetric appearance of the objects from its abstract representation, involving...

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...

Data integration is becoming an increasingly important issue with the increased sharing of information as a result of linked data and Spatial Data Infrastructures. To investigate the potential issues a case study for the Water Quality Register (WQR) of the Informatiehuis Water is used. In this case study the data residing in three separate data...

The INSPIRE initiative sets up a framework for the creation of an European Spatial Data Infrastructure (ESDI), which will enable the sharing of environmental spatial information among public sector organisations and better facilitate public access in general to spatial information across Europe. To do so, several common specifications have been...

The possibility of an automatic object matching process in combination with a VGI (Volunteered Geographical Information) type of map has been explored in this research. TOP10NL, the topographic map of the Netherlands and OpenStreetMap (OSM), the VGI type of map have been chosen for this purpose. The object matching process in this research...

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...

For the creation of three-dimensional (3D) city models, extrusion of building footprints is widely applied. Extrusion results in block shaped buildings. The main problem with these 3D models is that they do not represent height differences within a building. This thesis presents a method to improve building footprints by subdivision into parts...

Sharing and reusing spatial data becomes more and more important. One way of reusing shared spatial data is by creating a new dataset by making use of spatial data available in a combination of external datasets. This has been the central theme in this thesis, as its main objective has been to explore the possibilities of producing a culture...

Managing uncertainties in practice differs from the suggested uncertainty management approach in the (scientific) literature. Uncertainty managers are not aware of the many tools and techniques that are available to manage uncertainties in their projects. They deal with uncertainties in a rather implicit way with varying success. Furthermore it...

Nowadays the field of geo-information is undergoing major changes, and the transition from 2D to 3D is having a major influence. A significant amount of 3D datasets are stored in the database. Experts are aware that new quality control mechanisms need to be built into the database systems in order to secure and guarantee high-performing data....
