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. 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 (e.g. social data, transportation, mobility, history), to physical phenomena (e.g. light, wind, heat), and to environment (e.g. geography, climate).
Thus, the processing of urban data is a huge challenge for current GIS and computing capabilities, especially 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 workshop aims to gather in a same place GIS, BIM and comptuer graphics communities.

Contributions addressing the following topics are welcome:

  • Modelling the static and dynamic features of the city (spatio-temporal data)
  • Multi-scale geometric data (from building scale to urban scale)
  • Multi-scale temporal data (from real time to history time)
  • Visualisation of several urban data layers (aggregated indicators)
  • Visual analytics using urban data (decision making processes and CAD)
