Building Smart Cities

The presentation of the geography evolved over years and is getting a new form. This new form is presenting itself with a new, dynamic, user experience so that we can understand information better and make better decisions, but it is also a top of the iceberg in terms of how cloud computing, sensor availability is affecting the way we receive data about constantly changing world. With Hexagon Geospatial technology we are taking an advantage of the new form of information presentation and are utilizing the power of new technology behind the scenes. Hexagon Smart M.App is helping us make Smart Cities smarter.

HexGeo Next: The future of technology

IMAGEM’s annual conference has always features at HexGeo Next session – a look into Hexagon Geospatial’s kitchen. This session will present development that are not yet available in the software but planned. There are no guarantees, no ready-to-use products, simply cutting edge technology previews.

Geo, Media & Design, an example of a geo-information education in a fast changing world

Education want, should, and is changing, influenced by all sorts of trends in society and technology. Skills to interpret these developments and react, are more important than knowledge. Geo, Media & Design is continuously busy to adapt the educational courses in cooperation with active working partners like e.g. IMAGEM. The presentation will present some examples of the educational adaptation. The public can discuss these changes.

3D Urban Planning & Development

For some time the municipality of The Hague has been involved in the knowledgement and use of 3D Geo-Information.The municipality of The Hague creates and manages a three-dimensional city model by themselves. In this presentation the methods and choices will be explained and the use of the 3D city model will be demonstrated.

Data Dissemination in Defence by Using ERDAS APOLLO

This session focuses on data management using ERDAS APOLLO at the Netherlands Ministry of Defence. The speaker will describe how geospatial data from the European Union Satellite Centre is located, retrieved and shared, as well as how data catalog is built.

3D Applications: deploying GeoMedia 3D technology for urban re-development and content analysis of buildings

The presentation consists of two parts. Firstly, a surface/content analysis we have conducted in the city center of Arnhem. Investigating if an existing commercial retail chain, that wants to expand, has better opportunities if it were to stay in its current (A-rated) location and what the consequences would be if it would. Secondly, investigation in a shopping mall that has to deal with vacancies. One of the solutions found is to concentrate different target uses, both on the ground floor as on the upper levels. To get a clear picture of this we use 3D visualisation.
For both examples we have developed an application which will be demonstrated during the presentation.

Looking for Data-driven insights regarding district liveability

BMC and Capelle aan den IJssel collaborate in developing a Dashboard Wijkleefbaarheid, where own data, chain partner data, geographic insights and tools lead to a content rich environment that provides (policy)practice-supporting insights where management of the municipality can monitor structured and in real-time the liveability. At the beginning of this process, we started to create an dashboard. In order to obtain both support and insight. Understanding the possibilities for future users, but also insight into all kinds of practical issues. In this session we will show you the first intermediate results. And we are curious about your ideas or maybe similar experiences!

Smart Water: Sensor-based decision making

Many measurements and reporting are being done manually. These measurements are costly due to the necessary expertise, lead time and measurement equipment. In addition, it is not "actionable intelligence" or no ‘real-time’ information to shorten the time between an observation and the necessary action to be taken. In this session we present a concept, learned from our Smart Emission solution, which can support water boards to shorten the time to take action when norm values ​​are exceeded. What is needed to get an Actionable Intelligence dashboard?

Monitor the stability of your underground resources & infrastructure

Over the next few years maintaining weakening infrastructure will cost society in billions. Quick and controlled detection of minute deformations itself help save large costs. With the Rheticus® platform, not only can above- and underground deformations be measured down to millimetres, but coupling with Smart M.Apps can provide and active monitoring environments through intuitive and easy-to-use dashboards.

The impact of sensors in public space on our environment

Hans Nouwens is the initiator of the ‘Smartest City of the Netherlands’ election and runs the National Smart City Living Lab program. For the platform Making Sense for Society, Geonovum explores the impact of sensors in the public outdoor space on our environment. Questions that come up in the exploration are: Who measures what and with what? What is being done with these results? How are we going to make those meta data transparent? How do we keep an overview of all those sensors?

Do  more with NedBRK, a cadastral dashboard based upon Smart M.Apps

With the application it is possible to receive, share and process the specific cadastral data information. A long standing wish from NedGraphics and its customers was to generate more thematic and policy information based on the cadastral data. With the Cadastral Dashboard, based on Smart M.Apps, NedGraphics has been able to fulfill this wish. This presentation shows the Cadastral Dashboard and explains NedGraphics' reasons for choosing Smart M.Apps technology.

Bringing Space Down to Earth

We live in an ‘information society’ today that is increasingly in need of rapidly available information – including weather, climate change, knowing the right time to sow or harvest crops, safety measures, traffic conditions, global market movements, current and future social needs and much more. Satellite data is an information source and can be combined with other sources of information if need be. Due to the growing need for up-to-date information, there is a global market for satellite applications involving both governmental and commercial parties. Both these parties provide increasing amounts and quality of satellite data at a fast pace. This creates opportunities for developers and service providers to use location-based information services.
