New IJGIS paper on the propagation of error in 3D GIS and in estimation of the solar irradiation

A new paper has been published in IJGIS:

Biljecki, F., Heuvelink, G. B. M., Ledoux, H., and Stoter, J. (2015). Propagation of positional error in 3D GIS: estimation of the solar irradiation of building roofs. International Journal of Geographical Information Science, vol. 29(12), December 2015, pp. 2269-2294.
DOI: 10.1080/13658816.2015.1073292

The paper deals with the following:

  • Extension of the error propagation theory to 3D GIS
  • A method to determine the propagation of error with procedurally generated (synthetic) 3D city models
  • Development of a CityGML compliant software prototype to estimate the insolation of rooftops of buildings
  • Investigation of the propagation of error in the estimation of the solar irradiation

The code (Solar3Dcity) supporting this work can be found on the Github repository of our group.
