International SIG 3D and OGC Workshop on Requirements for CityGML 3.0

Aim of the workshop

The OGC CityGML SWG, the SIG 3D, and Technische Universität München will host a joint international workshop to gather requirements, ideas, suggestions, and positive as well as negative experience from CityGML users, data producers, software vendors, and scientists with CityGML 1.0 and 2.0 in order to guide the development of the next major version of CityGML. The workshop will take place on the 20th and 21st of June, 2013 in Munich, Germany.

In the recent years many research groups, companies, and users intensively worked with CityGML and on possible extensions or modifications. In order to promote an open discussion this workshop will address a number of major issues and gives floor to groups and individuals who can and want to contribute to the future CityGML development. Participants are invited to communicate their experience in short presentations and to introduce their new concepts or modifications or share their experience gained from practical application of CityGML. We explicitly want to point out that no decisions on presented and discussed items will be taken at this stage of development.

Addressed topics

  • THURSDAY, 20 June 2013
    • 10:00-10:20 Welcome address from the organizers
    • 10:20-12:30 Improved Support for Simulations and other Applications
    • 13:30-17:00 LOD Concept of CityGML

On Thursday evening a social event will take place giving the participants the chance to enjoy Bavarian hospitality, food and beer at one of the famous Bavarian beer gardens or beer cellars (depending on the weather).

  • FRIDAY, 21 June 2013
    • 09:00-10:30 Extension of CityGML by new Objects
    • 11:00-15:00 Stronger Harmonisation with 2D Cadastre and Models

The detailed agenda can be found here: Agenda of the Workshop.
Further information on each topic can be found here: Workshop Topics.

Who should participate

If you are a CityGML user, data producer, software vendor or a scientist working with or on CityGML, you are encouraged to participate in the workshop. The organizers will contact a number of individuals and groups from which they know about their CityGML activities and ask them for presentations soon. However, if you would like to contribute a presentation, please send a short abstract (300 words) to the organizing committee consisting of the CityGML SWG chairs and the CityGML editors (please direct submissions to: ). The decision on the acceptance is based on the expected contribution to the issues named above. Due to the limited time, probably not all proposals might be considered. In case of too many submissions, another workshop will be planned. The accepted presentations will be listed on the frequently updated page Agenda of the Workshop.

Costs of Participation

The event is sponsored by industry partners and the Chair of Geoinformatics at Technische Universität München. Hence, participation is free of charge including coffee breaks. Costs for travel and accomodation as well as the social event on Thursday will be at the participants own expense.
