Street view imagery (SVI) is one of the largest (growing) resources in urban analytics. A global close-up of the urban environment, if you will, which is rich in (untapped) information such as floor count. Floor count is useful in many applications, from improving energy consumption calculations to creation of 3D city models without elevation...

In order to limit the global warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius, all sectors have to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and become more sustainable. This also includes the building sector, which is in Europe responsible for 40% of the total energy consumption (European Commission, 2020). A way to work towards this goal is by retrofitting...

As the way we interact with maps keeps changing, so do the maps change alongside. And it can be easily pointed out how these changes come alongside a large number of advantages for the average map user, such as quick access to data or the ability to view more or less of the Earth's surface with just a mouse scroll, as well as for specialists...

Transforming the global energy sector from fossil-fuel based to renewable energy sources is key to limiting global warming and efficiently achieving climate neutrality. The decentralized nature of the renewable energy system allows private households to install photovoltaic (PV) systems on their rooftops. In this context, planning an efficient...

Due to safety or preservation reasons, certain objects or areas need to be inspected regularly. Currently, the inspection of objects is mostly done in-person, which is labour-intensive and not very effective. With the use of drones, areas and objects can be inspected from new angles at a much faster rate. To effectively monitor these objects...

Blind and visually impaired people currently have inconveniences locating themselves in the indoor environment. No standardized system exists for them yet. After an inventory of the requirements of blind people, different representations do qualify for providing specific information blind people need. The main research question is: "How can...

A 3D city model uses three-dimensional geometries to represent and model urban environments, in which the building model is the key feature. With the development of computer and data collection technologies, 3D city models are gaining growing capacities regarding storing rich information. This makes 3D city models more potentially useful than...

Solar energy is an important renewable energy source that is already generated by millions of solar panels attached to building roofs throughout The Netherlands. Whether a roof is suitablefor solar panels relies on its type, orientation and whether it is put in shadow by a neighbouring object. This means, the higher the solar potential of a roof...

Currently more than 4 billion people live in urban areas around the globe, a trend that is expected to be increased in the upcoming years. While urbanisation provides the space for innovation and new opportunities, in the meantime physical, technical and social challenges are rising and the cities’ vulnerability is increasing. A tool to tackle...

Geographic Information (GI) has proven its value with its ability to be used in various fields, which left numerous questions about how this data should be stored, used, and managed. To facilitate the sharing and reuse of spatial data, Spatial Data Infrastructures (SDIs) emerged in the last decades and with the increase in Open Data, the belief...

In the field of Geographical Information Science (GIS), geodata transformation and analysis tools often take the shape of software libraries written in system level programming languages. <br/>However, the societal impact of these tools is often limited, as most end users only access these libraries via indirect means: Through bindings in other...

The merging of multiple partial maps of indoor environments created<br/>by teams of human or robot agents into a single global map is a key problem<br/>that, when solved, can improve mapping speed and quality. Existing map<br/>merging approaches generally depend on external signals which are not available indoors or only use the geometric...

Urban physics is a multi-scale and interdisciplinary field, that combines science and engineering for the study of physical processes in urban areas. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is considered a powerful tool for the study of these processes. In the context of microscale phenomena these processes refer to the transfer of heat and mass in...

The kinds of physical spaces present in the real world are becoming ever more complex, and the locations defining the boundaries between these spaces are often arbitrary. Distinguishing between which spaces count as `outdoors,' and which count as `indoors,' becomes more difficult when `semi-outdoor' and `semi-indoor' spaces are considered....

To keep the Panama Canal operational year round, the water level in the canal is maintained above the minimum depth. As water is passed through the locks and into the oceans on either side, the canals main reservoir looses fresh water, and this water is then replaced by the canals secondary reservoir which is Lake Alajuela. The Lake Alajuela...

Today, in the urban planning, energy modelling and other fields, semantic 3D city models are used in various applications like visualization, data exploration, analysis and more. As a result, standard data practices needed to be set in order to facilitate the storage and exchange of these city models. For this purpose, the Open Geospatial...

3D city models are frequently used to acquire and store energy-related information of buildings to be used in energy applications, such as solar potential analyses and energy demand calculations. In this context, the most common data model is CityGML, which provides an application domain extension called the Energy ADE to store energy-related...

Building height information has been more used in a variety of industries in recent years. This information can be used in sustainable urban planning, urban climate research, population estimation, and three-dimensional (3D) building reconstruction, etc. Nowadays, building height information is obtained mostly by photogrammetry, high-resolution...

The building permit process in the Netherlands is mostly digitalized, however, there are still some issues. A downsize of information, the manual checking from the municipality, and the duration of the process are some of these issues. To overcome these issues information between 3D building design models, so-called Building Information Modeling...
