Intelligent data for Smart Cities
The notion of Smart City is becoming critical to understand city dynamics, identify trends, predict further changes and provide a mechanism to make cities manageable, liveable and sustainable. In this forum, five smart city experts will debate on spatial data and their use in developing smart city technologies. The goal of the forum is to bring forward emerging and challenging topics for research. Several best practices of use of spatial data in Smart cities such as wellbeing, green roofs or smart waste collection will be central to the forum. Emerging technologies and best practices for field data collection using different sensors (in a broad sense) will be discussed. A large part of the conversation will focus on data models, data structures and standards such as CityGML, IFC, landinfra, as well as the aspects of linking different concepts and enriching semantics. Being an important component of Smart Cities, communication with the citizens by dashboards, AR and VR interfaces, public displays, etc. will be elaborated as well. The forum will be organised as a mixture of short presentations, discussions and a closing Q&A session.
