3D GeoInfo 2014

The conference 3D GeoInfo 2014 was held on 12 and 13 Nov in Dubai, UAE. It was organised by the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and the American University in Dubai.

3D GeoInfo is an event that once a year brings together 3D GIS researchers, and this year it was particularly interesting because it was organised in conjunction with the 3D Cadastre workshop, which contributed to the diversity of the participants.

The presentations fit two full days, in a single session (yay!). The program was diverse, and it’s hard to tell if there was a central topic. An optional Oracle Workshop was organised a day before.

Proceedings are published in two collections:

  • A Lecture Notes in Geoinformation and Cartography book that will be available later in December.
  • Online proceedings hosted at the German National Library (freely available).

I have presented two papers, and I have used the opportunity to announce my procedural modelling engine Random3Dcity, which generated interest among CityGMLers.

3D GeoInfo 2015 will be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (hosted by UTM), with the call for papers already published. The deadline for full papers is 10 May 2015, and if you haven’t attended a 3D GeoInfo yet, I warmly recommend it.

Rumour has is that the 3D GeoInfo 2016 will be organised in Athens, Greece.
