- Workshop objective:
The objective of this workshop is to discuss the modelling and visualisation of the city at various temporal and spatial scales, and aims at sharing associated techniques, methods, uses and points of view.
- Discussed issues:
Managing and understanding urban data are major issues as there are represented by several kind of different data at different scales. Urban data not only embed the geometry of the city model, but also data related to human activities (eg. social data, transports, mobility, history), to physical phenomenon (eg. light, wind, heat), and to environment (eg. geography, climate).
Thus, the processing of urban data is a huge challenge for current computing capabilities, specially considering all the sustainable development parameters related to architectural design, urban planning and urban climate studies; but also considering the specific needs of entertainment, cultural heritage or any domains using urban data.
The issues found in urban data modelling and visualisation are shared by various domains (eg. Computer Graphics, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Human-Computer Interface, GIS, Conceptual Modelling and others) and are related to data quality, the complexity of the cities and the decision-making processes.
