About

The 3D geoinformation research group is part of the Department of Urbanism, Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment of the Delft University of Technology, and is affiliated with AMS, the Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions. It focuses on the technologies underpinning geographical information systems (GIS), and aims at designing, developing, and implementing better systems to model 3D cities, buildings, and landscapes. These systems help in environmental modelling, urban planning, crisis management, automated cartographic generalisation, information modelling, modelling of the interior of buildings, etc.

It is a multidisciplinary group (computer scientists, geomatics engineers, and geographers) composed of 3 permanent research staff and several PhD students, postdocs, and visitors.

It has a history of successful collaborations with the industry and the government: its research has led to software, standards, and patents for the management of 3D geographic information.

The staff of the group is active in several international organisations such as the Open Geospatial Consortium, EuroSDR, and the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing.

Our research funding mostly comes from the following organisations:
