How can we unlock a human-centric simulation for a better urban future?

Our built environment is more than a 3D-space – it is dynamic and full of movement. Constant, daily fluctuations change the way we move or make use of services. The fifth WDBE2021 Community Session will explore the potential of geospatial digital twins in its journey to unlock urban supersensing. The benefits of the digital twins are becoming increasingly apparent in Smart urban design as these tools increase efficiency and data-driven decisions. With knowledge, we can understand our movement and behaviour, […]

Next Generation Geospatialists

News from AGEO, Austria One issue faced by geospatial professions nearly worldwide is a perceived lack of students moving into these fields. ‘Perceived’, to some degree, because there are few crisp divisions between and definitions of disciplines, perhaps with the exception of surveying engineers authorized for e.g. cadastral surveying. Otherwise, we observe a lot of horizontal mobility between digital fields. Computationally competent professionals getting spatialized, Geographers and Planners going digital, and continuing education focusing less on updating but re-skilling and […]

Successful BEGEO 2020

On 27 October 2020, AM/FM-GIS Belux participated in THE annual national GI event in Belgium, called ‘BEGEO: The Ultimate Connection’. In this troubled year, the base line was very relevant, people need to connect and when live encounters are difficult, the online events offer an appreciable alternative, although they can of course not replace the real life face-to-face experiences. Despite the difficult conditions, we had a nice celebration of our annual GeoSpatial Awards, an event that AM/FM-GIS has run for […]

Brugstedet.dk – a catalogue of inspiration

The GI domain is packed with examples on how spatial data can add and create value. We are, however, not always that good at communicating this – we tend to talk a lot about the “what” and the “how” and not so much about the “why”. Experience shows that outside our GI domain people are not that interested in projections, the noble art of geo coding or other technical sophistry – but they love and can relate to a good […]
