CIC Webinar on BIM - New Generation of Map Data and Services for Construction Industry

Date: 17/02/2021

Time: 16:00 – 17:30

Speaker:

Mr. Oengus LAM, Land Surveyor, Lands Department;

Ms. Vanessa LUNG, Cartographer, Lands Department;

Ms. Karis KONG, Land Surveyor, Lands Department

Language: Cantonese with English presentation materials

Description: New Generation map data, including 3D Pedestrian Network, 3D Visualisation Map and Map Application Programming Interface (Map API) services, from the Lands Department (LandsD) have been available on the Public Sector Information Portal and the Hong Kong GeoData Store since 3 Dec 2020. They enable the industry to conduct construction-related applications by providing the latest mapping data in Hong Kong. Construction industry is able to use the 3D data and Map API for different geographic analysis and evaluations in different construction stage, including traffic noise assessment, visibility analysis, 3D visualisation of pedestrian routes or study on pedestrian access.

On the other hand, LandsD Map API enables the industry to conveniently access topographic map, imagery map and other location information through HTTP requests. It significantly reduces time and efforts required in processing the raw map data as compared with the traditional way.

Webinar on Empowering Future Urban Planning & Design with Dynamic Data

Date: 23/02/2021

Time: 16:00 – 17:00

Speakers:

Dr. Bruce CHONG, Director, Urban Sustainability,  Arup

Mr. Sankar. S. VILLUPURAM, Associate Director, Digital Services, Arup

Language: English 

For many years, urban planners and designers have been relying on personal experience, data analyses and planning principles to formulate planning schemes that affect millions of people and billion dollars of construction investments. The data sets are not in real time and they can often grasp are only traffic records, decennial census data and survey responses from a thousandth of the population. Professional judgments and creative imagination fill the vacuum in planning techniques.

In recent years, the rapid development of digital technology has transformed one traditional industry after another. The application of new technologies such as the Internet of Things and mobile internet has resulted in an explosive growth of urban dynamic data. ‘No data’ can no longer be an excuse for a comprehensive and objective understanding of the city.  For the first time in history, omniscient observation on urban activities becomes a possibility. However, like crude oil buried deep underground, the presence of urban data does not guarantee its usability.  Systematic drilling, extracting, refining, transport and storage are required to harvest its energy.

In this webinar, Dr. Bruce CHONG, Director (Urban Sustainability), Arup, and Mr. Sankar. S. VILLIPURAM, Associate Director (Digital Services), Arup, will share their research on how urban planning and design methods should transform to tap into these opportunities and make the process more efficient evidence-based, and responsive to future changes.
