ASPRS/CaGIS/GLIS Free On-line Seminar

3D Indoor Modeling for Navigation
Sponsored by ASPRS, CaGIS and GLIS

Date & Time: May 3, 2013 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM EST

The American Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) GIS Division in partnership with the Cartography and Geographic Information Society (CaGIS) and the Geographic and Land Information Society (GLIS) would like to invite our members to attend our second seminar in a series for 2013.

Abstract: Indoor space differs significantly from outdoor. The indoor movement is complicated by existence of corridors, stairs, doors, elevators, etc. Therefore the models (geometric, topological, cellular, etc.) developed for outdoor navigation are not readily appropriate for indoor use. This seminar will elaborate on the most prominent 3D indoor models, CityGML and IFC, the options to extract 3D networks from such models considering a specific locomotion mode and will present some approaches for path finding and guidance considering dynamic and static obstacles. The recent developments within IndoorGML (a new OGC standard for exchange of indoor network models) will be discussed as well.

About the Speaker: Dr. Sisi Zlatanova is an associate professor and the leader of the theme group ‘Geo-information for Crisis Response’ at the GIS Technology section, OTB research Institute for the Built Environment, Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands. She is the chair of the ISPRS WG IV/7 3D indoor modeling and navigation (2012-2016), a member of the OGC drafting team IndoorGML and a member of the SC of IRDR (2011-2014). Her research interests are in 3D geo-information: modeling, structuring, analysis and visualization. Since several years her focus is on 3D indoor modeling and path computation.

On-line Registration:

NOTE: Registration is limited to the first 95 people who sign up and log in to the seminar.
