FME in Urban Information Modeling FME in Urban Information Modeling Presentation Transcript

  • CONNECT. TRANSFORM. AUTOMATE. FME in Urban Information Modeling Lutz Ross / Jens Frolik Head of System Integration / Geodata Engineer
  • LoD2 Model Frankfurt Airport
  • Berlin 3D City Model
  • 3D SDI Hamburg
  • Table of Content  Who we are and what we do  Urban Information Modeling (UIM)  FME and CityGML Examples  Summary CONNECT. TRANSFORM. AUTOMATE.
  • Who we are and what we do  virtualcitySYSTEMS GmbH, Berlin  14 employees  Consulting, Training, Software, and Services  Our Focus  3D GeoIT solutions based on CityGML data  OGC Services WMS/WFS/WPVS integration  Web-based 3D GIS
  • Urbanization Source: http://www.un.org/esa/population/publications/WUP2005/2005wup.htm
  • Urbanisation  Cities are getting bigger, more complex, and need to serve more needs than ever before  Big challenges:  Urban planning, security, infrastructure and building maintenance, traffic control, energy planning, event managment, …  Require new solutions  Smart Cities, „rich-in context design“ - Integrated planning, analysis, and simulation
  • Urban Information Models Source: Prof. Dr. Thomas Kolbe, TUM
  • CityGML as Data Model
  • CityGML  Pro: Semantics, Geometry, Topology and Appearance on man-made and natural topographic features  Con: Complex data model, few commerical tools, no CityGML editor, few viewing solutions  And still: There is a growing adoption worldwide
  • 3D City Database  CityGML database solution  Open Source project: www.3dcitydb.org  Relational database model for Oracle Spatial and PostGIS  In use by many municipal/federal agencies in Germany  virtualcityDATABASE is build on top of the Open Source version
  • CityGML Database
  • 3D Wepmapping  Based on CityGML database
  • 3D Weppmaping Application
  • FME and CityGML  FME supports reading and writing CityGML!  FME can:  Read and extract information from CityGML  Transform heterogeneous data into CityGML  Be used to automate processes  Has become a core technology in our solutions
  • FME and CityGML Examples  Transforming Data to CityGML  Importing and Cataloging Data  Data Distribution
  • Example: Transforming to CityGML  Growing list of Transformations  Shape (PolygonZ) to CityGML building features  DWG/DXF TIN data to CityGML ReliefFeature  Points + terrain data + 3d tree models to CityGML SolitaryVegetationObject  …  Current Challenge: IFC to CityGML
  • Workspace
  • CityGML Result
  • Courthouse Square LoD3
  • IFC2CityGML  Transformation is possible  Outcome looks fine and validates  Still: Not as it should be from the conceptual idea of CityGML  Current mapping: IFC Wall (Solid) -> CityGML Wall (MultiSurface)  Should map to: IFC Wall (Solid) -> OuterWallSurface and InteriorWallSurface  Solution: IFC views
  • Example: Importing and Cataloging  Task: Transform well-defined input data to CityGML and  Create a metadata record in Geonetworks  Import the CityGML data to the 3DCityDB  Solution: One FME Workspace does it all
  • Example: Importing and Cataloging SHP TIF FLT CSV RGB 1. Transformation to CityGML 2. Creating a metadata record 3. Inserting metadata to CSW 4. 3DCityDB-Importer Configuration Shutdown Script triggers 3DCityDB Import 3DCityDB FME Server Geonetworks CSW insert operation via HTTPUploader
  • CityGML database grows
  • Example: Data distribution  Remember? CityGML is not supported by most GIS/CAD/BIM tools natively.  Potential users of the 3D data need it in a format supported by their tools  Solution: A FME workspace  Custom reader for our CityGML database  Data transformation in common 3D formats  Published parameters  For FME Desktop and Server
  • Workspace
  • Data distribution  Users can easily  Select the features/area they want to extract  Select the required LoD and appearance  Select the target format  Data extraction and transformation is automated  FME Desktop or FME Server
  • What you see is what you get  Export functionality integrated into our web- visualization solution
  • FME completes our 3D SDI solution
  • FME completes our 3D SDI solution
  • Summary  FME enables our customers to transform existing 3D data into CityGML  FME supports us and our customers to build up and maintain 3D geodatabases based on the CityGML standard  FME enables our customers to transform CityGML data into formats required by their customers (end-users)  FME is fun and has great support!
