I would suggest that so called Big Data is dependent upon computing systems and applications that not only are capable of computational abilities, but are also geo-capable of multi-disciplinary, geo-refrepresentative of processes. erenced spatial analysis. Big Data questions occur where overlaps arise. They are 3D and reality based and lend themselves to geostatistical analysis. Simulation [...]

Many speakers at the smartgeometry 2013 event in London, UK last week spoke about the changing nature of design. Computers are now contributing toward design in new and previously unknown ways. The rate at which different designs can be generated, tested and decided upon, is accelerating. But it is not only shape and form that [...]

Students at smartgeometry 2013 in London displayed their workshop projects (images below) and answered questions about their projects. Under the ‘Constructing for Uncertainty’ theme, 10 project groups worked on their individual projects. Groups included: (A)Synchronous Streams Adaptive Structural Skins Computer Vision & Freeform Construction Digital Intuition & Prediction PAD Projections of Reality Robotic FOAMing Thermal Reticulations Transformational [...]

Using maps and graphics, the infrastructure cost of the Paris, France Metro is provided on a per square meter basis. Not all stations are created equal – a fact displayed when viewing some of the costs of the Metro stations. Charts also provide information on per line basis for different routes, showing costs between stations [...]

Nicolas Garcia Belmonte has created a unique visualization that tracks U.S. wind patterns over 72 hours based upon the last 72 hours of National Weather Service Data. ”This map tracks wind direction (lines), speed (radius) and temperature (hue) measurements from 1200 weather stations across the country. You can play an animation of the wind movements and [...]

With SoundBrush sounds can be measured and visualized in 3D. This technology can be used for a myriad of applications where sounds and acoustics are involved. As SoundBrush states – “LMS SoundBrush makes sound visible. It is the first technology ever to visualize sound fields in 3D while measuring. At the heart of the compact [...]

How we understand and what we expect from cities today is rapidly changing. Concepts such as carbon management, 3D city models, integrated spatial data use and advanced demographic charting and statistics for decision making and business intelligence are all relatively new. While some more advanced city managers can weave through geographic information systems (GIS), leap [...]

The UK National BIM Report 2013 is now available. The report includes an overview of the current state of building information modelling. Included are surveys and insights by leaders within the BIM sector such as 3D design, 3D models, 3D infrastructure, 3D architecture and so on. Some highlights: The 2012 survey shows the percentage of the [...]

Traffic prediction is becoming more highly refined and applications are enabling increased accuracy. In the city of Cologne, Germany, IBM has used a digital traffic control system. As Daily-e reports, “a digital control system which provides traffic: it is called “Software Traffic Prediction Tool”, a software that predicts the areas of traffic jam at least 30 [...]

The Ordnance Survey UK is searching for some imaginative thinkers – people who can connect the dots in new ways. This is a good thing, since, it represents a willingness to expand beyond boundaries, challenge new heights and to to think of possibilities for exploration. “The “Software Warriors and Topography” experts (SWAT) will capture the [...]
