The programme will support the development of semantically enriched 3D model of Singapore which includes detailed information such as texture, geometry and topology of city objects and terrain attributes. Advanced information and modelling technology will allow dynamic and real-time data to be incorporated on top of static city data powered by BIM and GIS integration. A public version will be available in 218.

Key Learning Outcomes:

  1. What are photogrammetry and point clouds?
  2. Benefits of semantic information embedded in cityGML formats.
  3. Big data analytics and simulation for both planning and engineering.
