Abstract. The talk will focus on semantic 3D city modelling based on the international standard CityGML and will consist of three main parts.
In the first part, an introductory overview of the main CityGML characteristics will be given, followed by some examples of heterogeneous applications in which a semantic 3D city models acts as hub of integrated spatial and non-spatial information. Two main topics will be explored more in detail in the following. In the second part, some current developments with regard to the integration of BIM with city models will be presented, with particular attention to the GeoBIM project. Finally, the extension of CityGML for energy-related applications by means of the Energy Application Domain Extension (ADE) will be mentioned and briefly illustrated.
The presentation is intended for an heterogeneous public, hence practitioners from disciplines other than Geomatics (Urban planning, Energy, etc.) are also heartily invited to attend.
Bio. Giorgio Agugiaro studied environmental engineering in Padova, Italy. He received his PhD in Geomatics in 2009, and is currently Assistant Professor at TU Delft in the 3D Geoinformation group. Before moving to the Netherlands, he worked for the Austrian Institute of Technology in Vienna (2014-2018), and for the Fondazione Bruno Kessler in Trento, Italy (2010-2014).
His main research interests are in the field of GIS and spatial data integration, with particular focus on semantic 3D city models. Some of his research topics deal with the development of an information model to manage and exchange semantically-enriched multi-resolution 3D urban data for urban energy planning. More in general, having a semantic 3D city model as background, the idea is to foster software integration to allow complex urban system simulations and close (or reduce) the gap between geo-information and simulation.
