In the architecture, urban planning and infrastructure sectors there is rising interest in supporting designs and plans with real-world numbers. Although these software provide geometry capabilities for adding and editing designs, the connection between geometry and design is as much or more highly valued because it is on that basis that contacts are developed, construction [...]

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 [...]

3D GIS is revolutionary. As more tools become 3D oriented, the real world will become easier to understand for many people. What you cannot see or understand in 2D, will make more sense in 3D / 4D. In the case of urban planning basic infrastructure will form the foundation for most cities. In as much [...]

The Local reports on the newly designed Berlin Metro Map. The UK professor Max Roberts who designed the map decided that the current map needed a change. “Although the Berlin underground map is based on a standard technique comprising of horizontal, vertical and 45 degree diagonal lines, it seems simple until, “you are on the [...]

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 new year will being many new predictions, trends and opportunities for those using spatial, geomatics and geospatial technologies and services. The following are my predictions and emanate from 3D Visualization World Magazine where most of the news and information I read daily and publish can be found. 1) 3D To The Core: If you [...]

Precision farming is about much more than a single prescription map alone. It is about integrating a bunch of intelligence together, then making the proper decisions – continuously. Farming is not a one-off. Farming is not a single harvest. Farming is not about a single ultra-maximum productive year. Landscape management is a system. A common misconception [...]

A revolution is under way. New design and visualization tools are rapidly moving into the Cloud. Autodesk has long been recognized in the design and entertainment fields, crossing many industries and for developing the tools and services that allow designers, creators and inventors to imagine and bring their efforts to reality. At the Autodesk University [...]
