Geomatics Day 2017

23 juni 2017 00:00 - Locatie: Faculteit Bouwkunde, Oostserre - Door: Communication BK

On 23 June the Geomatics Day 2017 ‘Point Clouds and Internet of Things’ will take place.

Geomatics Day gives you the opportunity to meet students, alumni and other Geo-information professionals and to explore together how Geomatics can contribute to better understand and shape the Built Environment. An afternoon full of varied presentations, spectacular demos and interesting network opportunities!

Register for free before 19 June


Geomatics is an innovative and rapidly developing field. High-quality, accurate and reliable 3D representations of our built environment are essential for modelling performance and other computational contests. Big data offers new challenges for urging academic, commercial and societal issues. Developments like Internet of Things to sensor the built environment and to monitor devices and valuable equipment inside facilities result in huge datasets. Autonomous cars and drones require integration of sensors and accu- rate and real-time environmental data. Geomatics covers all aspects from sensoring to storage, from data quality to privacy and from analysis and visualisation to application.
