DUBAI | 11 - 13 November, 2014


We invite you to join us for the 9th International 3D GeoInfo Conference and the 4th International FIG 3D Cadastres Workshop hosted by the American University in Dubai (AUD). The Cadastres Workshop will be held from the 9 to 11 November 2014, followed by the 3D GeoInfo from 11 to 13 November 2014.

3D GeoInfo aims at bringing together international state-of-the-art research and facilitating the dialogue on emerging topics in the field of 3D geo-information. The conference offers an interdisciplinary forum in the fields of 3D data collection, modelling, management, maintenance, analysis and visualization of 3D geo-information. We sincerely welcome you to take part in this activity by sharing with us your expertise and passion for 3D data and technologies. The 9th International 3D GeoInfo Conference promises to be a leading event in 2014!

The increasing complexity of infrastructures and densely built-up areas requires a proper registration of the legal status (private and public), which can only be provided to a limited extent by the existing 2D cadastral registrations. The registration of the legal status in complex 3D situations will be investigated under the header of 3D Cadastres.



The 4th International Workshop on 3D Cadastres addresses the following topics: 3D Cadastre operational experiences (analysis, LADM based, learn from each other, discover gaps). 3D Cadastre cost effective work flow for new/updated 3D parcels = 4D (part of whole chain: from planning/design/permit in 3D, to registration/use in 3D). 3D Cadastre web-based dissemination (usability, man-machine interfaces, including mobile/AR). Legal aspects for 3D Cadastre, best legal practices in various legislation systems. Focus on large cities, including developing countries.

Among others, the following subjects will be addressed by the 3D GeoInfo Conference: 3D data acquisition and processing (e.g. 3D point clouds). 3D ontologies (OWL etc.). 3D districts and neighborhoods. 3D data modeling, nD models, geometry and topology. 3D geospatial databases. 3D visualization, virtual and augmented reality. 3D spatial analysis and simulation. 3D standards for geospatial technologies. 3D spatial data infrastructures and 3D data integration. 3D city- and infrastructure modeling. 3D indoor and outdoor navigation. 3D GIS and BIM. 3D city and urban planning, disaster and risk management, environmental simulation, etc. 3D (mobile) GIS, AR systems and applications, 3D GIS and time. 3D sub-surface modeling, tools, and applications (e.g. in geology, geophysics, reservoir exploration, etc.). 3D open source software development.
