A session at GIS+ : New Smart Applications for Design (Work Smarter, Faster)

  • Sustainable Landscapes Research Group

Wednesday 15th May, 2013

10:00am to 10:15am (GMT)

GIS links other smart applications for working smarter and faster to analyse, design and deliver projects in an increasinginly complex and changing landscape.

Let the leading experts guide you, demonstrate the applications and how to work... smarter.

• One of the most significant regulatory changes is the requirement of BIM for all publicly funded projects by 2016, where all projects must be managed in a 3D environment. Privately funded projects are expected to follow suit and indeed have been pre-emptive.

The Landscape Institute BIM Working Group will discuss what BIM means for landscape architects and how to share data within a BIM managed project, while ESRI will present how ArcGIS integrates with BIM.

•Halcrow will demonstrate 'Smart Modelling for Flood Risk Management' with ISIS, their river modelling software used for environmental impact assessments, developing catchment management plans, flood alleviation scheme designs, river engineering and irrigation schemes and more...

•LUC (Land Use Consultants Ltd) will present their case studies using GIS mapping and analysis for landscape projects. LUC has experience with a wide range of projects spanning landscape planning, management and design, environmental planning and ecology.

•ESRI UK presenting CityEngine, their new smart 3D modelling software for urban environments.
ESRI provides the world-leading ArcGIS software to businesses, governments and educational institutions to make timely, informed and mission-critical decisions by leveraging the power of geography.
