Indoor 3D Workshop

Indoor 3D Workshop will be organized at 21st October 2016 as a pre-conference workshop session of the 3D GeoInfo 2016. The ISPRS WGIV/7 is organising this workshop to provide a platform for researchers to present and discuss their work in the various aspects of indoor mapping, modeling and analysis. Topics will include but are not limited to, the acquisition of indoor environments, the modelling and representation of indoor and enclosed (mines, tunnels, cavities) environments, the localisation, tracking and guidance within indoor environments, and the visualisation of indoor and enclosed spaces.

Participation in Indoor 3D Workshop is included in the 3D Geoinfo registration fee, however it is required to register through the online form as there is a limited number of available seats.

  • Data acquisition in dynamic or cluttered scenes
  • Simultaneous localisation and mapping
  • Sensor networks, localisation

Data Structures and Modelling

  • Automated model creation from imagery, point clouds and other data
  • Data Structures (topology and geometry)
  • Algorithms and standards for integration of BIM, CAD and GIS indoor models
  • Automated semantic description of indoor environments

Visualisation and Navigation of Indoor Models

  • Visualisation
  • PoI and Landmarks strategies
