3D Modelling for city digital twins based on geospatial information -  elective course (starting in November for 10 weeks)

Introduction

This course is suitable for all specializations of ITC and students from UT (e.g., Civil Engineering, Computer Science, or Creative Technology). It aims to provide the student with knowledge of different 3D city/building modelling methods (as a base for Digital Twins), based on geospatial information. The students will be given the opportunity to practice with a variety of applications (e.g., GIS, BIM, image-based, gaming, or Virtual reality and Augmented reality) to develop and interpret their own 3D city/building model. To achieve this, theoretical and practical activities where the student can learn different 3D city/building modelling techniques and methods, used in a variety of applications, based on geospatial data are used. The student will have the opportunity to work on a 3D modelling/Digital Twin assignment.

Laser scanning -  elective course (starting in April for 10 weeks)

Introduction

Airborne, terrestrial and mobile laser scanning are modern technologies to acquire and monitor the geometry of the Earth's surface and objects above the surface like buildings, trees and road infrastructure. This course provides an overview on the state of the art of these techniques, potential applications, like digital terrain modelling and 3D city modelling, as well as methods to extract geo-information from the recorded point clouds.
