To obtain 3D information of the Earth’s surface, airborne LiDAR technology
is used to quickly capture high-precision measurements of the terrain.
Unfortunately, laser scanning techniques are prone to producing outliers
and noise (i.e. wrong measurements). Therefore, a pre-process of the point
cloud is required to detect and...

In recent years, there has been a growing necessity for 3D geoinformation in urban planning and infrastructure management to provide a more realistic representation of urban areas and the built environment. A key concept in public infrastructure management is Life Cycle Asset Management (LCAM), which aims to improve the decision making in each...

In this thesis we present a computational framework, which allows simulating residential location choice. The specific application of the model focuses on representing populations under disaster risk. The aim of the tool is to enable public planning agencies to explore the synthesized households’ location choice under risk and different spatial,...

To cut down immense greenhouse gases emission and energy consumption in the rapidly urbanizing world, a holistic understanding and rethinking of our dynamic urban energy system are inevitable. Performing bottom-up building energy modelings at urban scale based on Geographic Information System (GIS) and semantic 3D city models could be a...

3D city models are now common planning and analysis tools. Urban vegetation as a feature in these models, however, is neglected overshadowed by the focus on buildings, so its inclusion in 3D city models is often symbolic. On the other hand, urban vegetation improves the comfort and social well being of a city’s inhabitants and is a resource for...

Many countries in the world are extending their cadastral visualization systems in the third dimension. The reason of this, stems from the increasing complexity of contemporary cities, the growing 3D approach in other fields (including 3D spatial data acquisition, spatial data processing and visualization) which made 3D cadastre...

In the second half of the 20th and beginning of the 21st century the amount of natural disasters has increased rapidly. Due to this rise in occurrences, more people are affected. An important indicator for people affected is the amount of damage to buildings. To gather this information aid workers now have to go into the field to gather data on...

Climate change has been a heated topic in recent years, and the mass loss of ice sheets is one aspect of it. The Antarctic Ice Sheet has experienced certain mass loss in the form of ice-shelf collapse and (sub-)surface melting, but thorough study remains limited due to the remote location of the continent. Therefore, remote sensing is expected...

The continuously increasing population within cities imposes the future challenges related to planning and managing the sustainable environment, where people’s health and wellbeing is prioritized. Currently more than half of the world’s population live in cities which results in the rise of the human footprint, affecting the local climate....

Amsterdam circular economy ambitions raise the question of what would be the impact of an organic waste collection system on inhabitants. Impact is an effect of a source on a receptor. Existing impact modelling studies describe impact either from source or from receptor perspective. In spatial planning, both source and receptor are variant over...

Discrete Global Grid Systems (DGGS) have emerged in recent years as a new specification for working with global heterogeneous datasets of different types, such as vector, raster, and quantitative datasets. There exists no research on using point clouds with a DGGS. This research aims to analyse the extent to which a DGGS can be used to handle...

There is a paradigm shift from two- to three-dimensional data, from maps to information dense models. Self-driving cars, digitization of historic buildings or maintenance of highway infrastructure are a small selection of many applications that use laser scanning to acquire three-dimensional data of our physical surroundings. Most of these...

The seismic building structural type (SBST) reflects the main load-bearing structure of a building and therefore its behaviour under seismic load. For numerous areas in earthquake prone regions this information is outdated, unavailable, or simply not existent. Traditional methods to gather this information, such as building-by-building...

Groeneveld, IJsbrand (author)
The vario-scale concept has proved an alternative for the well known discrete multi-scale solution. However the vario-scale concept is still ongoing research and requires further development e.g. on how to generate better content for vario-scale maps? This research does focus on how to incorporate hydrography networks in the vario-scale solution...

The current trend towards the use of smart tools within universities open up new opportunities. Insight in the location and daily rhythms of users within the building form valuable input for many decision-making processes within campus management. Unlike the outdoor environment, where the position is easily obtained through omnipresent satellite...

There are several 3D city models available openly, worldwide. These models are used in various applications, from which many expects a homogeneous Level of Detail (LoD). Validating the accuracy of the LoD of a model requires the inference its LoD class and its conformance to the real-world object. This process quickly becomes infeasible for...

3D reconstruction of the built environment is a widely studied Geomatics topic. Resulting city models are used for a great variety of purposes. The reconstruction of roofs remains challenging. These roofs are not only building blocks for the city models but are of direct interest as well. The company READAAR uses roof segments for the detection...

Precise and comprehensive knowledge about 3D urban space, critical infrastructures, and below ground features is required for simulation and analysis in the fields of urban and environmental planning, city administration and disaster management. In order to facilitate these applications, geo-information about functional, semantic, and...

Water management is becoming increasingly important in the world. Population growth, climate change, and increasing demands placed on infrastructure call for a smart and standardized approach. The data needs to stay at the source and sharing information in a more efficient way is becoming increasingly important. To make this possible in the...

One way to stimulate a more circular economy, is to explore opportunities for urban mining. This thesis explores a new method to assess the quantity of underground electricity cables which could one day become available for urban mining. This research answers the question: ”To what extent can topological networks be used to localize and quantify...
